It's been a month and I'm down 10 pounds. Soo rewarding. I wasn't losing weight and feeling satisfied on other programs. I think I found the one for me. One thing I really want to do is add more movement. I'm currently working Summer Camp. ... Read more

Something clicked. That's the only way I can explain it. It's an entire shift in being, a feeling that I can do it and will do it no matter what. It's beyond motivation. I've started "diets" hundreds of times and without that click they fail eve... Read more

I can't believe it's been two years since I've been on Spark People. I would love to sit here and say I'm at my goal weight and my health is amazing, but the reality is I'm back to square one. I'm lost. So I decided to be honest with myself and ... Read more

“Make a decision to stop treating your diet like a hobby and start treating it like a battle you must win. Get tough and hold your feet to the fire. 99% compliance is failure. If you’re going to get fit, it’s all or nothing.” ~ Steve Siebold ... Read more

A lot has been happening over the past week … I think I mentioned in my last blog that I’ve been coughing since August 22nd. Three months of coughing! It was exhausting! I couldn’t even exert myself without gasping for air and having a coug... Read more
