  • I Gotta Quit.

    7/28/2015 4:39:32 PM, by WEARINGTHIN

    Opening my big mouth, that is. I just made an inflammatory statement on a political story. It was a severe criticism of a major candidate. I wondered after I sent it out if it would land me facing some wealthy attorneys. I think I've just gotta learn to bite my tongue a little. From someone whose ... Read more

  • After my blog on the foods to avoid...

    7/23/2015 9:21:04 PM, by WEARINGTHIN

    My spark page was paid a visit by the American Beverage Association, who have a Spark name, but no Spark page to respond to them by. This is my response. They claimed that regular and diet sodas can be part of a healthy diet, that there is no proof that they contribute to obesity, and that researc... Read more

  • Foods to avoid according to doctors.

    7/22/2015 3:30:22 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    Just read this list online today of foods to avoid. Thought following it, and the flipside of the list, the positive foods to eat, would lead to health in the biggest ways. Foods to Avoid: Bacon: Fat and cholesterol hang onto it. Bread or pasta: High glycemic index, not whole foods,... Read more

    7/18/2015 4:42:09 AM, by NOWYOUDIDIT

    2 years ago I picked my goal. researched my plan and decided. NOW I would become thin, once and for all in the next year. With mad dog determination I white knuckled and gripped my way. I dropped 20 pounds quickly, I WOULD do this! Until a new fear set in. I had had my 3rd abdominal surgery ... Read more

  • Another new caregiver

    7/15/2015 9:44:58 AM, by GINIEMIE

    Boy, I learned a big lesson. In June, I hired a friend of someone who works at the Rehab place that Erik goes to. I did not ask for a background check. I asked a lot of questions, but had this nagging feeling about the person but Erik wanted someone besides mom to take him to transitional therapy fo... Read more

  • Just For Today

    7/11/2015 2:28:16 PM, by WOMANWITHGRIT

    Quietly from my corner, here, let me say that I am very grateful. Since June 8, I have been taking it one day at a time with food - and on a three moderate meals a day, maybe a snack, and nothing in between plan. I do track what I eat on Sparkpeople - and usually it is between 1300 and 1400 c... Read more

  • Why I decided to gain weight...

    7/10/2015 1:01:35 PM, by UNIQUE55

    As I read a SP blog this morning it brought some memories into my mind. Memories from about 20 years ago. Memories of why I made the choice to gain weight. I know... who in their right mind chooses with a clear mind, to gain weight? I decided to gain weight on purpose. Yes, I made a clear choice to ... Read more

  • Time to Begin Anew!!

    7/6/2015 2:38:37 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    I had been reading some men's fitness magazines lately. You know, the ones with the guys with the buff bods on the cover. Then, yesterday, I was leaning into the mirror with my shirt off, and saw my almighty girth in all of it's full color. I had been kidding myself that losing 33 pounds since I s... Read more

  • I thought hard about posting this one on a weight loss site.

    7/4/2015 1:51:44 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    But it seems to be the main format I have for writing my comments. I just think I have seen a lot of hatred spewed at people crossing the borders lately, or as many say, Illegal immigrants. I just wanted to state that if we had a pathway to citizenship, and welcomed people into our country, we woul... Read more

    7/2/2015 8:16:09 AM, by UNIQUE55

    I am no longer in Physical Therapy, but in Work Hardening. The Therapist is working with the deep tissue in my shoulder, bicep and shoulder blade areas, that were all damaged in September of 2013 and repaired in September of 2014. As of today -July 2, 2015 - I have officially been home from my... Read more
