Hello, Friends. It's Me Again...
Good morning, friends. I'm sorry to say that I have gone and done what I thought I would never go and do! I backtracked, fell off the weight loss wagon, blew it, let myself down, as well as all of you. I gained almost all of the weight back t... Read more
So here we are in the mountains again! We took 2 days getting up here. I caravanned up with my brother and his family, so it was a lot easier trip for me. We stopped in Canyon on the way and visited the Palo Duro Canyon and saw the play "Texa... Read more
Catch Up blog with pictures!
I am now 3 days into our Summer challenge, and so far so good. I am trying not to dwell on the fact that I am having to lose the same weight again that I lost last year! I have to just move forward from here.
Today was mine and DH's 24t... Read more
Here We Go!
Today is Day 1 of our Summer 5% Challenge and I am so ready to get started! I need this push and accountability to get me back on track. I will not go into all the reasons that I have regained nearly half of the weight that I lost, but I will ... Read more
Good morning, friends! I'm still here! I just took a break from the computer for the weekend. I finished my first week of "one day at a time" today and it went well for the most part. Some days were definitely better than others, but at leas... Read more
Checking In and Sewing Projects
So, I made it one more day! I met most of my goals yesterday, with the exception of water. I didn't quite get enough. But I did track, resist junk, and exercise, so that is definitely progress. It feels so good to be doing something again. ... Read more
One Day at a Time (cont.)
So far, so good. I was able to meet most of my goals yesterday. I tracked everything, drank my water, exercised, and chose healthy foods for the most part. The scale was even down a few pounds this morning. Now, I'm ready to face another day... Read more
One Day at a Time
First of all, thank you all so much for the warm welcome back I received after posting my last blog! Your kindness and support overwhelms me. Thank you!
Now, on to the blog. I woke up to a shocker this morning on the scale. 199.5!!! Yik... Read more
Time to Begin Again (Again!)
Very few of us on this journey actually have a straight line from start to finish. If you are anything like me, there are several twists and turns and ups and downs along the way, much like a roller coaster. Unlike the roller coaster, though, ... Read more
Good Morning, Sunshine!
Good morning, all of my sweet Spark Friends! The sunshine has finally come back into my life (both metaphorically and literally)! After many weeks of being in a deep depression, the cloud has finally lifted and the sun is shining through. My ... Read more
Enough is Enough!
I have pretty much been stuck for the past 6 months! Not stuck in the sense of a plateau, but stuck because I just can't seem to stick to my healthy eating! I've become rebellious. I don't WANT to eat healthy. It's not fair. Why do I have t... Read more
Christmas Traditions and More Projects!
We celebrated Christmas at my parents yesterday with my brothers and their families (about 25 people!). We had a wonderful time with lots of Christmas traditions so I thought I would share a few with you. Since about 1982 (when I was 12), we h... Read more
New Hairstyle and Food, Food Everywhere!!!!
First of all, I wanted to show you my new hair style. I haven't had it cut or colored since I started my journey on Spark, so it was way past time. I was trying to wait until I reached goal to get it done, but then I finally decided I didn't n... Read more

Thank you all for being so patient with me and not giv... Read more
I'm Sorry (trying to catch up!)
I am so sorry that I have not been there for you the past couple of weeks. I have had a little setback. You see, after several months (possibly years) of being free of it, depression has once again reared its ugly head. I h... Read more
