Why am I not tracking?
Monday, September 25, 2017      2 comments

No motivation! Well, I do have some motivation, but not enough to do everything it takes to get thinner and healthier. I haven't been logging in because I keep saying to myself "I don't care anymore". But the truth is I do care. I am not at ... Read more

Updating my goals
Friday, May 26, 2017      3 comments

I have been on SparkPeople for 5 years now. It's been a recent surprise to realize that the goals I set change over time. I expected that goals set based on my values would stay the same, since my values really don't change. But life happens ... Read more
