Saturday, April 18, 2009      1 comments

I don't remember what my fast break goals were almost 2 years ago. I've maintained (which for me is a great accomplishment) but I need to get back to the basics and beginning and start over with stage 1 and real belief that I will succeed. I tho... Read more

Two things I have been somewhat (or very) successful at in the almost 2 years at Spark: I quit smoking - not that big a deal since I only smoked a pack a week at the most; and I went from 2liters of soda a day to two cans of soda a day and somet... Read more

Tried to take the before picture but didn't work right with the flash and the mirror and all. Wasn't going to give the camera to my 4yo or 2yo and roommate is less than supportive when I ask for any help so that was out too. I did save them to m... Read more

I've been on SP since early June and have yet to really do the healthy eating and exercise. Instead of giving up and staying obese, I keep believing that I can make the changes that need to happen. I'm taking very baby steps right now but at lea... Read more

I stay up late trying to get not so far behind knowing that if I don't get more work done before bed that I'll have an even harder time finishing everything before bed the next day. It's a vicious cycle and then even when I go to bed early, I'm ... Read more
