I had a notion of coming back and starting a new journey on Spark, where the majority of my last journey took place. I'd been gone for nearly six months, and then back for a short while on private mode, with access to only a few dozen friends. W... Read more

"Less fat" is not a thing to work toward. It is a thing to work away from, and as I said in my last blog, I want to work TOWARD something on this new journey. I've thought a lot about what I want to get out of my journey this time around, and wh... Read more

A lot of thought and soul-searching has led me to an unfortunate conclusion: I went about my first weight loss journey in entirely the wrong way. Don't misunderstand - I didn't do anything that would harm my body or make it difficult to maintain... Read more

I'm back

Actually, I've been semi-back since June 7th, but I slimmed my profile down to a handful of friends and have kept my posts and profile private during that time. I am now ready to return to semi-active, public Sparking. While I was gone, a l... Read more

I'm pulling away from Spark for a time. I'm not sure how long. It might be a few weeks, it might be a year. I need to focus on other, more-important things right now. Whether I gain or lose weight in my time off doesn't matter. I haven't thought... Read more

Thaaaat has pretty much been my month since Thanksgiving. "Healthy" means something different to each of us. For me, it means cutting out grains and sugars completely, and avoiding alcohol for the most part (mostly because drinking a glass ... Read more

I had blood work done this week. It was the first full-panel blood work I've had since Feb 2012. (I had a finger-prick test in Dec 2012, but doc tells me that those numbers are wildly inaccurate, so I'm not counting them.) The blood work in 2012... Read more
