For the last six months I have been starting back up on SP and then falling off the wagon over and over. I had come so far in my weight loss journey and had managed to keep it off for more than a year. WHY did I let it creep back on and WHY wasn... Read more

This is FUN! If I wasn't so gosh darned amazed at the difference, I wouldn't be boring you with more pictures. Plus, the Before pic was taken on 10/26. More than a month AFTER I started here on SparkPeople. So, these are only 11.5 weeks apart. C... Read more
I'm Not The Resolutionary Kind

When I first signed on to this whole losing weight mumbo jumbo, one of the first thoughts I had was, I can't wait for my family to see me thin. I've been overweight for most of my adult life. I had a baby when I was 18 and gained a lot of wei... Read more

So, last night I decided to write a blog. It's been a while and these blogs have actually been a great way for me to work on the mental part of my weight loss. I typed away and edited my little masterpiece for close to two hours. When I was... Read more

I'm not really sure why I've always wanted to complete a marathon, I just have. Maybe it's simply proving to myself that I can do it? Maybe I'm a glutton for punishment? Running is kind of a strange hobby when you think about it, but for some ... Read more

This blog entry isn't me being preachy. It's more like me talking to myself. Most of my blogs will be like that. It's therapeutic to get these thoughts down. I'm no expert. I'm just trying to figure out how I got here and how I can continue to c... Read more
