So I have been on here since some time in 2009 and this is the first time in that decade that I have been below 300 lbs! That’s a bit frustrating since several years ago I was working out almost daily for 2 hours but, there you are. This weigh... Read more

I'm inordinately pleased to have a new friend just sign up on SparkPeople. I am supposed to be tracking my food so that we can monitor what is creating issues with my gout but I am just not as good at it as I once was. Plus I hate writing down... Read more

Okay, if anyone wants to do what is needed to put this URL together it will lead them to a very good and empowering article about the ridiculousness of fat-shaming. You'll have to close the gaps by copying and pasting to a notepad or email, edi... Read more

I tend to poke my nose in whenever I get an inspirational email from Spark just to collect my points but I need to wade back into the fray. I slipped off the wagon a couple of years back when I had carpal tunnel surgery on my left hand. I was ... Read more

I love this! It says what I have thought for quite a while. Doesn't let us off the hook exercise-wise but I'm fine with that. I particularly like the illustration. www.nytimes.com/2012/09/

Green Mountain Geocache
Wednesday, August 08, 2012      4 comments

or "Steep Part III" On Monday I badgered my family to get up and out to try for a geocache out in Kananaskis Country. The trail sounds not too bad on paper as it is about 4.5 miles and while the description mentions a bit of an incline I... Read more

I went out again this morning but I still couldn't find the geocache I have been trying for as the GPS I was using had low batteries and petered out just as I got across the bridge and turned it on to check for the waypoint that was supposed to ... Read more
