Who IS that in the mirror!?!
Okay, I don't really feel like blogging, but it needs to be said.
Back in 2013, I lost 60 pounds. I went from 237 pounds to 178.
It's January of 2015 now, and as of yesterday at the doctors office, I've discovered that I'm back smack dab ... Read more
Just nod if you can hear me..
Where to start... who even knows at this point. Let's just cut to the chase, I'm lazy and I've gained 42 pounds back, taking me from the glorious 178 that I had reached last year to the 221 mark where I currently reside. There is no other reason... Read more

Heya sparkles, I'm back! Sorry for my extended absence... at first I was avoiding Spark because I was off track (naturally, that's generally always the time that I avoid it), but then before I knew it, moving time was upon me! I'm in CA now, hav... Read more
I can feel it coming in the air tonight.

The dreaded shame spiral.
Ah yes, the old shame spiral. We all know it. It's that cycle that starts when you slip up and gain a few pounds back. You get angry, and instead of working to reverse the negative, you keep adding to it. You eat more, and workout less. Is it a ... Read more

Well hello again my sparkles..I hope you are all doing better than I have been. Right now I'm doing the typical "It's the first of the month and I need to restart again" thing. The scale has an AWFUL number on it, but I was truthful and updated ... Read more
Take a risk, take a chance, make a change.
Happy middle of the week Sparkies!
I'm still not completely on track, but I've made progress. I cut soda back out, I'm trying to have a bit more control with food, and I'm working out again. Eventually it will all click into place again. Now w... Read more

What in the blue hell is wrong with me!? I can't seem to get it together!
Monday, I hit the reset button again. I didn't exercise, but I ate perfect. Yesterday, I exercised, ate mostly perfect, but then had a big binge after I got off work. I... Read more

Yep, I'm a loser.
So while I was taking a shower earlier, I was thinking about the holidays. You see, there are three types of people during the holiday seasons.
1. There are the gainers. They are the ones who eat everything in sight, push exercise to the side... Read more

Swear to shake it up!
Well sparkles, it looks like I'm back on the upswing for the moment. Yesterday was my first full day of exercise and perfect eating. I was going to slowly ease back into the exercise, but I said f*ck it and jumped in head first! I need to remind... Read more
