Today was one of those "Ah Ha" days when I actually could feel and see the progress I've made over the last month. I am down 6 lbs. and, while that may not seem like much, on my 5'0" frame, it means a whole size smaller. It also means not feeli... Read more

How many of us log in on Spark People every day and read an article, or several, expounding the virtues of staying active and fit? I know I read at least 2 to 3 but the question is how seriously do I take them. I saw a real-life example of how s... Read more

I was looking at some comments on my Spark Page photos of my two little dogs and it hit me - my dogs are wiser than I am. Sometimes I fall into "pity party" mode and think about how hard the journey is and how long it takes. Looking at thes... Read more

I've been asking myself that a lot over the last couple of days. Looking back at my old blogs, I wonder why I didn't follow through with the things I said I was going to do. It wasn't because I didn't mean what I said when I said it - I think I ... Read more
