    Over the past couple of days I have been looking over old posts, both on this page and my old page. I found out about SparkPeople back in the fall of 2007. I feel like I have wasted so much time. I could have been at my goal weight back in 2009. But I tell myself that this isn't an easy thing to... Read more

    7/29/2015 1:15:33 PM, by EL-E-E

    Hey there. I haven't been here in a while. I tend to get a little bit addicted to this site and start spending wayyyyyy too much time on it, particularly during work hours (oops) so I've had to cut back. Also, I've not been very faithful to my health goals, kinda eating whatever I want since about m... Read more

    So - I did it - I went out this morning - before 7 - all bundled up in long-pants, shoes & socks, hoodie with the hood pulled up - and got rid of all the "new weeds" in the garden. By "new" I don't mean "just started growing" - but rather "unfamiliar." See ... usually sometime in fall (or spring ... Read more

    I have noticed when I get stressed I don't have a healthy routine. I'm going to try to remind myself that I need to do more, like take a walk when I get home. Even if it is only 30 minutes. Clean instead of putting it off. Ear healthier even though your body tells you to go for a Oreo or ice cream, ... Read more

    7/29/2015 8:08:16 AM, by ~INDYGIRL

    I can't tell you how many opportunities I've passed up because I've beaten myself down before I've even had a chance to go for the brass ring. In the past, instead of losing weight, I resigned myself to failure almost every time. I could not believe in myself or be brave enough to face the obst... Read more
