Clothes Shopping
Tuesday, November 11, 2008      6 comments

SparkPeople and Me
Sunday, October 19, 2008      3 comments

I was doing some exercise earlier and thinking about how far I've come since I joined SparkPeople. I've learned so much about what I should be eating, and how I should be exercising. I know that I still have a lot left to learn, though. ... Read more

Old shorts - New again!
Wednesday, September 24, 2008      3 comments

I have this pair of shorts that I bought a year or two ago. When I tried to wear them earlier this summer, I couldn't even fasten them. They didn't fit at all. It was so depressing. This evening, I decided to give them a try. They are... Read more

We're having a carry-in today at work. To help me resist temptation, I like to step on the scale to remind myself of the hard work that I've put in. That gives me the motivation to be more in control of what I eat. I couldn't believe my ey... Read more
