Hello, I'm MaryAnn, and I'm a Yo-Yo Sparker
Monday, July 02, 2012      4 comments

Yep; I started on SP waaaay back in October of 2008. And you know what? It worked! I lost a bit of weight, became healthier, and made some great friends. I was dedicated; and because I was dedicated, it worked. Then I wasn't so ... Read more
Burning Ships, Three Years Later
Sunday, March 18, 2012      2 comments

On my last blog, my wise friend Patty reminded me of a blog I had written about Burning Ships. I just looked to see when I wrote that blog; it was January 29, 2009. Yeppers, 2009. Over THREE years ago. (It was about I story I read about ... Read more

Dropped 10 Pounds-The Good and the Not So Good
Monday, July 11, 2011      8 comments

...yessiree bub, I did. But it wasn't fun - it was torture. I haven't been around too much because I had a terrible stomach virus. I won't go into the gory details, but the pains from the muscle spasms in my gut were gawdawful....the fever...... Read more

Saturday, June 18, 2011      7 comments

Ooof. I saw this today on a Facebook page that I "Like." Talk about hitting home. I am not only the Queen of Denial, I am Lord Finnegan Begin Again, and Princess Half @ss. I was sitting on my bed the other day, on the phone with my... Read more
Just Call Me Finnegan
Monday, June 06, 2011      4 comments

I've said it before (waaaay too many times actually), Finnegan begin again! I've re-written my Spark Page "About Me" and I've reset my trackers. The resetting of the weight tracker has given me a little punch in the gut, because I've lost... Read more
I Don't Wanna
Sunday, May 29, 2011      8 comments

I don't wanna do it. I really don't. I don't want to have to *change* - - I want the magic pill/shake/machine/program. I want to be able to just "BE" fit and thin....like right now. I want instant gratification, without the toil and pain and... Read more

I've been in a not-so-great place for quite a while now...I've pulled away from SP, my friends, and I've pulled away from myself. I've been searching for an answer as to what is _wrong_ with me. The other day I received an email about a ne... Read more
Conquering the "Lazies"
Saturday, January 08, 2011      3 comments

Welp, I said I'm back, and, besides making it to the gym twice this week, I must admit that I haven't done much else. I have been attacked by a humongous case of "The Lazies" Perhaps I should rephrase that...I am *still* lazy. My dimpled... Read more
Another Job
Saturday, January 01, 2011      2 comments

...that's what SP was feeling like to me, way back when, when I began my Spark Break. ( I think I prefer to call it my Spark Sabbatical.) The old feeling of being completely overwhelmed by my life was creeping back: daughter was graduat... Read more

Ok folks, I'm back, and I'm jumping right in! Life has been crazy, but good (has it really ever been any other way?) Am I now a really healthy eater, thin, svelte and fit? HE11 no! But I have made some improvements. My daughter ... Read more
Well, I THOUGHT I Was Ending My Spark Exile...
Monday, June 28, 2010      5 comments

I'm still here - really, I am! I just haven't been "here" in quite a while. I mentioned some of the reasons for my exile in my last blog, but I'm not sure that quite covered it all. I think I was kinda/sorta running away (from what? From... Read more
Ending My Spark Break Exile
Sunday, May 23, 2010      11 comments

OK, I'm done. I've been on a Spark break for a little while now, focusing on marriage, family and home. I discovered that taking a "break" was counter-intuitive. It really didn't *help* me at all. It only pulled me away from my buddies h... Read more
Just How Many Times Can You Start Over?
Monday, May 03, 2010      5 comments

*~*Preface: I am cranky. I did not sleep last night. I did not work out this past weekend. I have been eating like a refugee who has just been rescued. Please bear with me.*~* Consistency. That's what it takes to get the weight-loss j... Read more
