  • Spark Owner Now

    7/22/2014 11:36:57 AM, by BELLALUNA8

    I love gizmos and gadgets. More than my husband even! And so I was quite interested to try the Spark device. A "dongle" you wear on your shoe. (Really, "dongle?" Is that the technical term?) Anyway, when you stop laughing about having a dongle, it's quite interesting. They say is it b... Read more

  • Week 4 Done!

    7/22/2014 11:20:31 AM, by KATHARINA01

    So almost a month now of tracking my food and for the most part I'm sticking with the program. I'm really surprised by how well I've been eating. Sure, every once in a while I have a single serving brownie or steal my roommates potatoes, but so far I've never gone above my recommended calorie range.... Read more

    I don't know what it is the past few weeks, but I guess I just got it in the back of my head that I was slowly giving up. Maybe because after losing 35+ lbs, that felt like a lot and that I had already "accomplished" something. This is when I would normally give up. It has happened count... Read more

    7/18/2014 10:55:47 AM, by ECKOKITTEN

    I have really been struggling lately. I think I have hit that spot where normally in the past I have given up. Things get harder, everything feels like it is moving too slow, too much work, I feel overwhelmed, etc... So I end up slipping here and there and then sooner or later I just give up all tog...
