I was doing well, really well, staying away from sugary treats. And then, along came the brownies. It was my son's 4th birthday. When I asked what treat he would like to take in for his friends at school, he told me he wanted brownies ... Read more

Yes yes YES! I wasn't going to check the scale, I really wasn't. I'd been off to a great start, but I started to second guess myself. My pants felt slightly looser, but were they really? I thought I felt slight changes in my body, but had I gone... Read more

I've been back on Spark for a week now. I really, really want to check the scale...but I don't, too. I can't help but compare my experience this time around to my initial one. I can't get to the gym every day as I did before, and I'm not as stri... Read more

Hello, Sparkworld! This is the third time out of the gate for me. The first time, I was a rockstar -- I plowed through without a hitch, pure determination, no looking back...and lost 60 pounds (woop woop!). The second time (around this time... Read more

I'm ba-ack! I took a 2-year break. For those of you who know me on here, I became pregnant when I was 10 pounds from my goal weight, though I had lost 60 by then and was pretty happy where I was! And of course, along with pregnancy comes w... Read more
I'm still here...kind of!

I have fallen off the face of the Spark universe. I am not counting calories, I am not getting regular exercise, I am not watching everything I eat...but I am chasing a 1-year-old around the house, I am managing a 30-hr workweek and full-time mo... Read more

Wow, I can't believe a month has gone by since my last entry! And unfortunately, this will be a short one -- still struggling to find time to get everything done! But I've been away from Spark for so long and wanted to check in with all of you! ... Read more

Hi everyone! Yes, I'm still out here, hanging onto this cliff of madness by my fingertips! "Busy" has taken on a whole new meaning for me, and honestly, I am just barely making it through! It's all good stuff, but it all eats up a lot of time, a... Read more

A few people have asked whether I was going to post any belly pics! Truth is, I haven't had too many pics taken of me since we got pregnant, and I keep forgetting to ask someone to do it for me! Soo...I took one of myself. TODAY! You'll have to ... Read more
