I have learned a lot in my almost one year at SP. I have learned that I do not understand portion control just by looking at something, that I do not always make the best choices for myself and that I can sabotage my diet just by my thoughts. I ... Read more

I am not a daily blogger...and usually wait until I have something I really need to put into words before I blog. I also have never blogged outside SP, so it's not something I'm real comfortable with. So this feels kind of like I"m just throwing... Read more

Now that one holiday is over and I'm feeling reflective I decided I'd go ahead and share something with all of you that I have heretofore only shared with a few of you. A few weeks ago I was contacted by someone at SP asking if I'd be willi... Read more

A friend situation got met thinking about this yesterday, and it is stuck in my head. I was recalling how many times, when I was raising my boys, that I heard them say "but I don't want to do (fill in almost anything here)!!!" And usually ... Read more

Someone asked me today if I have a goal here, like a final goal. When I started SP I knew I needed/wanted a weight related goal. I set 100 pounds, thinking at the time that was SO far out...I wasn't even sure if it was reachable.It's not m... Read more

For a few weeks now I've been a little off my game. Getting back there, but not quite. And it seemed that now that I'm back regularly on SP I am always reading posts or blogs of others who are lamenting the same thing I am: I just can't see... Read more

Let me start by saying I'm not beating myself up here. I know I had a lousy October. Having surgery sidelined me, and it's been a rough road back. That being said...I could have started the journey again a couple weeks ago and I've let myself li... Read more

As my regular spark friends know, I"m recovering (slowly) from surgery and having a down month. I'm still not quite back up to my usual sparky self, but I'm getting there. I had another Dr. check up today, this time with my regular Dr. (ins... Read more

Well, some time has lapsed since my last post with my 9 month progress pics. I knew I had been having a weird health issue. I wasn't sure what exactly it was, but it was something that should not have been. I really don't have any problem ... Read more

So I have 'officially' been here for 9 months today and lost 88 pounds so far.(I joined a few days before I actually started anything) What a journey! It doesn't hurt me to look back and remember where I was. I was not a happy person. I was... Read more

Makes us stronger? I hope so! A little randomness today just so I can catch up: I have been a little more MIA here. I hate that, truly hate it. But I decided a couple weeks ago if I was going to survive school this semester (on top of... Read more

Hello anyone who is reading this! Thanks for that. I will try to post a quick update here. Still trying to 'limit' my time on Sp so I won't have heart failure trying to do everything I have going on at the moment with no sleep. It is w... Read more

I have been thinking a lot about all the people here on SP, and how much I learn from all of you. I wouldn't be here without the people here. Back in November 2008 when I felt like I was dying bit by bit, when my body was shutting down and... Read more
