While doing SP has always been primarily about my health and not my weight, the fact is, for me, my weight and my health have been remarkably intertwined. I envy people who are my weight and higher who have no health issues—I am genuinely happy ... Read more

I'm not really losing or gaining weight at the moment, which is okay because there are so many other moving parts right now, I just don't have it in me to judge myself at the moment. There is a pandemic. I have some lingering health issues from ... Read more

Keeping this short since life with a newborn is hectic (although my husband is an extremely engaged and awesome dad who does way more than his fair share, the lack of sleep and all of our household tasks really add up). I am proud of mysel... Read more

I started my pregnancy significantly overweight (obese), and was very very lucky that I was able to keep my weight gain in check over the course of it. When I delivered, I had a traumatic hospital stay, but was 20 pounds down from my pre-pregnan... Read more

It's been a LONG time since I last posted (November I think?) and that's been a result of a few things. I've definitely fallen off my game, was focusing on growing my business/consultancy, and enjoying being a newlywed. But the biggest distracti... Read more

I've been on and off Sparkpeople for something like a decade. In that decade, I've gotten so much support and learned so much about myself, and have kept the closest thing I have to a diary. I probably need to write more and document more about ... Read more

For a few months, I’ve been eating my favorite breakfast food consistently: chilaquiles. Eggs, cheese, green salsa, and tortilla strips are quick and easy to make, and extremely satisfying. Today, I decided to change it up a little because I ha... Read more

I had some good, busy work-related events in February, and I'm really happy with all of it. But, travel has started taking a real toll on my body (more so when I'm on a bus than on a train or plane) and it makes me tired and kind of throws me of... Read more

My fiance and I are counting down the days to our wedding now, and I'm both a little excited and kind of eager to get it over with. Planning a wedding is stressful, I knew that going in, and it feels like I'm just begging for something insane to... Read more
