Best news: My brother and his family are coming Sunday for a week long visit! They live in Charleston, SC, so I can't visit as often as I'd like (we haven't seen them since I went up there in December), but they will be here in 4 days! Wors... Read more

I just had a can of corn in a mixture of chicken and beef stock for dinner (lazy, don't feel like going to the store, it was easy). As embarassing to admit that is what I just fed myself for dinner, it is even more embarassing to admit that I r... Read more

Well, I went over my calories last night...with a purpose. I spoke to one of the nutritionists I work with earlier in the week to discuss the SP nutritional ranges and such...good news is, she thouroughly approved!! Her only concern (and mine ... Read more

I've got to tell you, I'm SUPER diappointed...I'm trying to find Sparkers in my area, and so far, NO ONE is active in their accounts (I've been through 100 profiles, and it looks like everyone logged on once, got like 30 Sparkpoints, and called ... Read more

So today, while trying to get in my *eh* 6 hours of sleep before my 9 year old gets home from school (I work 12 hour overnight shifts guys...I'm not a lazy loafer), I was awakened at the crack of noon by Curves. Really Curves? I printed out yo... Read more

When I started this journey May 3 (less than a month ago), my biggest regret/fear was having to give up Wendy's. I love my Wendy's like most people love breathing...I don't think I've ever met anything on their menu I didn't like. But this wee... Read more

This is usually the point in a diet where I get frustrated. Traditionally, after a good weigh-in, I can't wait to weigh again, and I rush it, get not-so-good results, and console myself with 18 servings of Ben&Jerry's. And OMG, did I wake up w... Read more

There is a saying I heard about a year ago, but didn't fully understand until today: "People spend lifetimes gathering materials to build bridges that they will never cross." The first time I heard it, I thought to myself, "People worry too m... Read more

I'm in danger of sounding like the world's biggest suck-up right now, but I'm going to do it anyway. I'm reading The Spark right now...and OMG, is it great. I'm jumping back and forth between awe, comprehension, and being moved to tears...and ... Read more
