  • Starting over

    1/22/2020 7:14:53 PM, by MSGOETZMAN

    I was doing great. Lost 60lb. Looked great. And 2 weeks before Christmas the motor in my car blew up and I’ve been basically stranded at home (in the country about 20 miles from town) for sometimes up to 12 days at a time. I’ve gained 15lbs back. Sure, I could use all this time at home to workout, b... Read more

  • a shopping experience

    1/20/2020 4:29:55 PM, by SHINEFROMWITHIN

    I went shopping with three friends this past weekend. My one friend is a 20/22, I am a 16/18, another friend is an 8/10 and the other is a 4/6. My friend who is an 8/10 kept grabbing L/XL because she is so used to baggy clothes. We kept throwing M and even S at her and she marveled at herself in t... Read more

  • Lunar New year on Saturday January 25th

    1/18/2020 11:06:19 AM, by RATATOUILLETTE

    I have played with spark on and off since about 2006. I got serious in 2017 on the Lunar New Year. I got slimmer than ever in my life (post puberty). But then the weight started to come back on, sometimes faster, sometimes slower. But the fact of the matter is that I'm almost back to my starting wei... Read more

  • 2020

    1/17/2020 3:02:23 AM, by STINA1980

    I should be sleeping, but need to spare a minute to regroup. My precious daughter is now 22 months old and I have yet to find motivation to lose weight. I mean, there is motivation, but my excuses runneth over. Today I asked my doctor for a referral to see the dietician again. I'm excited even thoug... Read more

  • Surgery Recovery

    1/15/2020 3:50:49 PM, by TORRIESJOURNEY

    Surgery went well. She removed my right tube but kept my ovaries and cleaned the left tube up so it’s functional again. I did have a few endometriosis spots which were excized, along with lots of scarring everywhere else. She told hubby now’s the best chance for pregnancy to happen, so: once I’m hea... Read more

  • Goals: Monday 01/13/20 to Sunday 01/19/20

    1/14/2020 4:59:46 PM, by STEPGEEK

    I'm going to try and start posting my weekly goals from now on. I write some of them down in my planner each week, but I'm thinking that writing down the health and non-health related ones down in one place might help me focus and accomplish all that I want to do. So goals for this week: === WE... Read more

  • radical thinking

    1/11/2020 8:57:43 PM, by SHINEFROMWITHIN

    I went to a cooking class tonight with my husband. The menu was divine yet simple; manly meals with beer pairings (which is why it was super easy to talk hubby into). We enjoyed grilled chicken tequila burgers, a peppered beef stew, bacon mac & cheese, pork medallions in a pepper jelly sauce with ve... Read more

  • Good Week

    1/11/2020 3:27:08 PM, by RAETOP

    Feeling good about how well my week went. Eating right, drinking lots of water and taking my daily fitness goals seriously! Weekends are always a littler harder but so far so good. About to head to the grocery store so I’ll be prepared for another week of healthy choices. ... Read more

  • After the holidays

    1/11/2020 10:19:44 AM, by DOODLEBUG82

    I know I am not alone in hating what I put my body through this holiday season. I did really well until Christmas Eve. Two and a half weeks later I seem to need to start over. I am also dealing with a very sick 16 year old cat who has been my companion and furry friend. Having that on the heals of m... Read more

  • A slap in the face

    1/8/2020 9:22:02 PM, by DRIPPINGWATER

    Today I went to see a cardiologist. I asked him if some degree of dehydration could cause very mild tachycardia, to which he explained that the rhythm of the heart depends more on your level of activity, whether you're a more active type or lead a sedentary lifestyle, and he said: "And you certainly...

  • have you seen this movie?

    1/6/2020 7:01:19 PM, by SHINEFROMWITHIN

    I recently watched Brittany Runs A Marathon. Have you seen it? If not, spoilers ahead! I loved the movie for a few reasons: 1) you don’t need fancy gym clothes to run or walk 2) you don’t need an expensive gym membership - just get outside 3) she found a new passion 4) she met new people that...

  • new year & my goals

    1/5/2020 6:33:32 PM, by SHINEFROMWITHIN

    A new year. For some it’s another year to finally reach the goal for the perfect figure always eating clean meals, becoming obsessive and in times withdrawn, so hyper-focused on the goal; the dream. Sorry but I’m over that. My goal is to challenge myself and have more fun. What does that look li... Read more

  • New Year, New Life!

    1/5/2020 9:47:56 AM, by TCHRJES

    So I’m in a challenge until March 28th to loose weight. Kinda like the biggest loser! I’m pretty excited but still terrified of the whole what to eat thing. I’m doing better but still not 100% I’m putting the right things in my body or taking away the right things. Oh well, this is the motivation I ... Read more

  • Day 2: More Defined Goals

    1/2/2020 9:34:45 PM, by MM199321

    Yesterday was mostly about making sure I knew what my goals for 2020 would be (losing weight, having fun, etc.) but today, I want to define those goals more. Creating goals that are actually well planned out will definitely mean I have more of a likelihood of reaching them. I've wanted to simply "lo... Read more

  • Ready to Start MY New Year!

    1/1/2020 9:01:40 PM, by MM199321

    Hello, everyone. I've officially decided to make 2020 the year of self-care. The past several years have been challenging for me as I've not only gained more weight (I'm only 5'0'' so every pound gained shows!) but have had to balance family health challenges, a very full-time job (I've worked a mon...
