Things are going fine. Work is busy but not crazy, weekends are keeping me busy, hubby is working a bit less, girls are doing okay. But I feel like I am marking time. I'm not "doing" anything that is special or making a difference. I am kee... Read more

Daily Spark had a great video about a mom who had "the perfect body" but it didn't make her feel better. Did you see it? And then an article about bathing suits. I have done some work with body image--I have made a body mask of myself--post baby... Read more

What would I do differently if I could repeat this challenge? Well--I'd figure some way to drop these pounds that are NOT disappearing. Maybe close the kitchen earlier--have fewer snacks around. FIND my willpower and let things be!! I would tu... Read more

Wow--achieving a big goal is AWESOME!
Saturday, May 17, 2014      6 comments

Let's start with a fact--I am NOT a runner. I do run--I push myself to do so. I do not find great joy in running--but it is a faster way to exercise. I follow the advice to "set a goal and train for something"--so I have done 2 5Ks and decided ... Read more

Scale wasn't happy this AM, either--although down from yesterday. (Why is the highest weight of the week ALWAYS the one you are supposed to record??) But seeing the encouragement from Spark friends is SO WONDERFUL! Thank you for responding--fo... Read more

"Borrowed" from another Sparker. I am up--7 pounds from the goal weight--and my first year of maintenance is May 1. I am not happy. I still can't point to any one thing-... Read more
