  • It's Been 11 months but 60 pounds are gone !!!!

    1/20/2018 12:20:21 PM, by FUZZYBEEZ

    Well, I went a head with the bariatric surgery. On September 26, 2017 I had Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy. I know surgery isn't for everyone, nor do I recommend it unless you seriously need it. You see I got started down this road because my diabetes was uncontrolled and getting worse no matter wha... Read more

  • Call me The Streak ..

    1/12/2018 2:58:19 PM, by KELLY_SS

    I can hardly believe this. Sometimes I don't really pay much attention to my trophies or spark awards but this one is cool because it really means something. 375 continual days of logging in and tracking food & water. I have never been able to maintain a streak for this long. Even when ... Read more

    1/8/2018 5:46:42 PM, by 4CYNDI

    In my last blog I wrote about why I chose accomplish as my word of the year. Today I am contemplating exactly what it means and what it means to me, in my life, daily.

    1/2/2018 1:20:08 PM, by KELLY_SS

    I know it is hard to keep up with folks, especially thru the whirlwind of the holidays but I just want to thank my beautiful SP friends who reached out to me these last few days due to the death of my beloved Dad just before Christmas. To be honest, the past 11 days have been a blur. The holida... Read more

  • 2018

    1/1/2018 2:37:01 PM, by BKWERM

    2017 didn't exactly work out the way I thought it would. I started a new med for my RA and it's not working as well as the Rituxan did so I thought I would have a lower number of days exercised in 2017. However, I actually exercised 302 days in 2017, which is 18 days more than in 2016 so that's go... Read more

    Last year started with severe bursitis in my right hip and me deciding to stay at home and try to get things healed up. It took months but the pain finally subsided a bit. During the year I managed to lose 15 pounds and help Gary to lose 15 also. But then the rowing and lifting weights caused the bu... Read more
