I started a Meetup group a few weeks ago to increase our chances of socializing. There is nothing to do in our town for couples with no kids or single people. So I decided to start a gaming group, because who can't socialize over a table top gam... Read more

I feel like death has a grasp on my head today. Perhaps this is what it feels like to turn into a zombie. My brain is a fog, there is pressure behind my eyes, behind my nose, and in my jaw. My ears keep popping. I just want to go back home and c... Read more

If only I were talking about the NIN album. Let's start with good news. I am out of my sling! I have 3 more weeks of no pushing/pulling/lifting, but I don't have to wear the sling unless my elbow gets sore. I am trying my best not to cheat. My a... Read more

For the past two weeks I have started my day reading spark blogs. I find it a lovely way to start because I get to interact in a positive manner with people around the world on the same mission. I love helping people where I can or just saying, ... Read more

I am so excited I had my mental breakthrough yesterday because if I waited to step on the scale today I would have been back at 230 lb. Hubby and I both thought we were bad yesterday, but both of us lost more. I had a fish sandwich from McDonald... Read more

Five years ago I was 195 lb after losing weight through the help of SP and enjoying life. I started that journey at 232 lb. I was probably more at the start but it took a couple weeks for me to get over my fear of scales. When I finally bought a... Read more

Lately it has just been wearing on me more and more that I am the odd man out at work. I work with 7 women and all of them have worked together for at least 10 years. As of late the divide between me and them has just grown and it's especially h... Read more
The mental toll of a broken limb

Last night/this morning I just had enough of this broken arm. 2 weeks into wearing a sling and not using my arm I reached a low. I hate sweat pants! They make me feel like I've given up on life unless I am in them to exercise. Usually I don't ev... Read more
You're so vain, you probably think this blog is about you
Thursday, March 19, 2015      3 comments

I have a problem as I age. The older I get the more negativity I am surrounded by from other women due to vanity. The biggest part of the problem is that it is so far from something I understand that it makes me uncomfortable. Then when I make a... Read more

Wish there was majik to stop my eating
Tuesday, March 03, 2015      4 comments

Oh what a vicious cycle we lead in life. Why when I feel like I've gone past maximum density do I turn to eating? Food is what got me where I am and eating my feelings. I wish there was a switch to turn this off. I really wish I had a support sy... Read more
