Who would have thought

I have been at a plateau since late December '08. I did not think it would ever end. I became desparet and joined weight watchers thinking maybe I needed something more structured than just loggin into Sparks. After weeks and weeks of not losing... Read more
Staying focused
Wednesday, April 29, 2009      3 comments

I have not been logging in as frequently as I need to be. It is not because I have forgotten my Spark friends but rather because I have been strugling with my physical health. I realized that even though pain and I have become fast companions, I... Read more

Stop the stories
Tuesday, January 27, 2009      3 comments
