  • I am not a miserable failure!

    7/18/2016 8:45:32 AM, by SHIRE33

    Starve and lose fast or eat and lose slow - those are my choices. I've chosen to eat and lose slow, but there are days when this is a tough decision. The last time I was on Spark and lost 93 pounds, I lost it pretty fast - 245 to 153 in about 15 months or so. You can see the photos in my album.... Read more

    Wow! Okay, so my last update was in January 2015 when I had just returned from Hawaii and booked my tickets to go backpacking in Europe. What's happened since then? A few months after that, I met someone online while trying to make friends to meet during my summer 2015 travels. He lives in... Read more

    My time with my rock and my family has been the gift that keeps on giving. We returned from vacation on Wednesday. That day hubbo and I got in a huge fight. (I know, I know.

  • Whatever happened with the rock?

    7/16/2016 10:44:49 AM, by FITJEN48

    So, I wrote last week about a rock. Not just any rock, but a rock that carried some weight. While reading, "Write is a Verb," I decided to externalize a lot of the junk I had been saying to myself for as long as I can remember. Negative thought patterns are real folks and they hold you back, literal... Read more
