Starting Over... Again.
I got away from Spark & in a sense gave up on myself. I let stress & depression get the best of me & stopped taking the right steps to keep going forward. I basically just let things keep building up until eventually it all tumbled down on top... Read more
In just 3 months I will turn 40. In some ways that's a big deal, but mostly it's not.
It's just a number. I don't feel like I'm about to turn 40. I certainly don't act my age. And quite a few people have said I don't look my age either.... Read more
Inspiring words by Edward Everett Hale
"I am only one,
But I am still one.
I can not do everything,
But I can still do something;

Same Shirt, Different Sizes
So, I've been just ever so very slightly discouraged because I haven't lost more weight. I've been trying to stay on track with SS & not doing too bad, but the numbers haven't budged. And that's fine. I know I'm not going to lose weight every... Read more
