I know, it's a crazy time to do this. That I could just keep at my routine through the holidays and maintain this pace, but I need to get back on the WL bandwagon. Anywho! I'm Melanie, a 37 year old stay at home mom to two of my own and... Read more

Coming clean--

Monday, June 02, 2014      3 comments

Okay... I've been killing it with my steps of late. Seriously, no cheating lots and lots and lots of steps. 15-22k every day but one last week. But, I'm not working out. I'm eating crap. I'm sure I'm gaining weight, but I can't bear to chec... Read more

It is amazing what a decent night's sleep will do for a person. I've made some decisions. I dropped out of a WL challenge. The last thing I need at this moment is an artificial pressure to succeed. I've got an appointment with my... Read more

Feeling a failure

Monday, March 24, 2014      2 comments

I feel like quitting. I feel awful. I feel like I'm an ugly, fat, hideous human being. I had a panic attack on Saturday night. After which follows a period of depression. It will likely last a week or two and then I will start... Read more

Thursday, March 13, 2014      6 comments

There was a time in my life where being a "spark celeb" was on the horizon and I added friends, right and left. It was important to be important. Today, I just sat down and deleted inactive folks, people I've never actually had any interac... Read more
