Man oh man oh man. I have written this section 4 times since I joined SP in 2006. Every time it's the same I-will-do-it-this-time babble and then I give up and go away for months, then finally come back and start again.

How long will I last this time? I don't know. But I do know how miserable I am and how I WANT to feel, and that's my motivation for once. I'm following the Primal Blueprint from MarksDailyApple.com and it's easy now that I'm over the DTs from quitting sugar and precessed foods. How can anyone think that a food is OK to eat when you have withdrawals like a junkie when you quit eating it?

Oh, and if you're wondering, Katie Scarlett (even though I'm a Kati) is Scarlett O'Hara's full name (Gone w/ the Wind).

My Program:
I'm quasi-paleo with my nutrition. I clean my house once a week, which you may think is lame but I have a very messy husband, a big stinky dog, and a whole lot of house, so I'm usually dripping with sweat and at it for hours.

Personal Information:
I live just outside of Seattle, WA. In September of 2011 I just married an otherwise wonderful man who sadly loves all things junkfood. I can live without it - my weakness is quantity. I just love to eat, so I work with that by having lots of fruit and veggies around.

    Visiting some Spark friends tonight! Looks like some aha's in your blogs. I hope that things are going good for you. My days have been pretty good all summer. Weighing in monthly and Wednesday will be my day. Any loss will be a loss. I just bought new clothes to go back to work and they are smaller than last year! Got to my size goal but still have 15-20 lbs to lose. Last September was a stall out with a little gain and my goal is to NOT repeat the same emotional eating mistakes....keep in touch and keep Sparking!

    Clover hugs are better than regular hugs because they contain 4 times the heart, more fiber and fewer calories!

    Spark on!

    I just read a few of your blogs and so glad I somehow happened onto your page. I relate, relate, relate to almost every word in each one I read so I find comfort in knowing that what "we" go through is real and true.
    I keep reading and searching for the "key." Right now I am realizing that there is no one key but many keys. Also what works one day, week, or month does not work another so we just keep "doing" whatever it takes. We "know" what to do, but so often exicuting is difficult. We can do this...one day, one strategy at a time.
    I, too, get depressed, have great confidence yet low esteem, use food as my drug of choice to feel good, etc...
    I come and I go periodicaly on Spark but NEVER STOP TRYING! I may need a rest some days but will never quit. Keep Sparking! You inspired me today. Thank you.
