Ugh. That is all.
Man, I want to buy an island and put a dome over it. I would invite all my loved ones and positive people I know, and we would live in a world free of all the bs. The negativity. The drama llamas. ;) It would be a community of people workin... Read more

So I went to my WW meeting last night and we have this 3 month tracker book that gets past around. Everyone takes a turn and tracks really meticulously their food, activity, etc. I hadn't taken a turn yet, and although I lost 2 lbs., and met m... Read more
Spark may be a diet/nutrition site, but as we all know, the journey is just as much mental/emotional as it is physical.
What happens when we make changes and grow, but those around us don't?
I am not the same person I was years ago. M... Read more

How will YOU be remembered?
When you are gone, and the people who remain think of you, how will you be remembered?
