For the first year that I was at Spark I 'hung out' with the People with Disabilities group and then for a while I wandered amongst my teams and now Living with RAD is the place I call "home." And it really has become a "home." There are less ... Read more
A Review of the SparkPeople Cookbook
Tuesday, March 13, 2012      7 comments

Just a word up front: Spark People has not solicited this review (nor do they even know about it)...I wanted to talk about the Spark Cookbook here. Just to let you know that I am married to the world's pickiest eaters. He has a list of things... Read more
To Brighten a Gray Day....

So my morning thus far (better said as "moaning" as in "Good Moaning to ya!") has been comprised of - you guessed it - out loud moaning because every inch of me, particularly my back, is killing me this morning. It's another gray , damp, cold ... Read more

Well, I just weighed and measured myself to have the closing info for the month. It's been a disastrous month weight-wise (and inch-wise)...I'm not positive about how much weight I've gained during my two weeks on IV steroids and another 3 week... Read more

yeah....the idiot is me. I put on my Sarconies and a sweatshirt, readying to go down to the basement to work on the treadmill....but I looked outside and thought how much better and more interesting it would be to go and walk outside! I'd jus... Read more

It's 3:00 a.m. "time to write the blogs"(blogs are lower in calories than are donuts). And jokes after 1a.m. tend to be lame so mea culpa. I read advice the other day that said we should always begin a blog in the middle because how can yo... Read more

I just woke up this morning....and weighed and measured myself as I'd promised myself I would yesterday. Here's the "SKINNY" (don't you LOVE a good euphemism???) I have gained 15 pounds since my last weigh in. I now am officially 200 lbs... Read more

This morning I was having none of it. NO, "you poor baby''s no excuses because the chances of falling were good; no" it's too cold; or I'm too fat." The Time Simply Has come. Time to grab back whatever I can that's salvageable'; it's time ... Read more

Tonight is my home Bible Study group. I sat all day, miserable in my swollen, sweating body...bloated and weak as jelly and it didn't occur to me that today is Wednesday. Once it DID occur to me, I got dressed---struggling to find something th... Read more

It's a shame that two years into the game and many miles down the road; I find myself once more at "Square One." My health is a wreck....and as a result of that and of the damages of the steroids I must take in order to breathe...I have regain... Read more

I have really REALLY gotten out of the habit of blogging...that goes for my non-Spark blogs also...out of the five blogs I really am only paying attention to one of them...and of late, even that has been sporadic. So maybe I shouldn't be so... Read more
Just DO IT!!

I've had days like this before. They follow nights of foggy, trancelike sleep...Nights when I WOULD have been dead to the world, had my body not been hurting too much to make that possible. Mornings like this are mornings when my mind is sayi... Read more

This week I was voted a “Motivational Member” of Spark People.com. I was quite shocked honestly to receive such an honor...Most people who are voted to that position have lost prodigious amounts of weight, have kept it off, religiously exercise... Read more
Rocky Road is NOT just an Ice Cream Flavor!!
Tuesday, January 17, 2012      5 comments

This has been a tough month. Hard in the sense that pain has been intense. Discouraging in some respects as I've been working much harder at the Spark Program and seeing some Gains rather than Losses in the weight department ...However the new... Read more
