Thanks new SP friends! This is very exciting for me, I'm stoked and ready to incorporate everyone's ideas and encouragement into my new found lifestyle. Yep, I had been a smoker for 32 years (on & off) never been smoke free unless I was pregnant (3 x's in 32 years) It has been a rocky road, but I've got some all-terrain shoes (metaphorically) and I'm ready to roll. I guess I was so focused on not smoking, I 'crutched' on munching my way out of my clothes. I began to buy bigger sizes, until I realized; I LIKE THE CLOTHES I HAVE and I wanted to wear them until they were worn out!
Investing in what years I have left to watch my three children grow, the three grandchildren I have to watch grow and the many more to come. This is going to be the best adventure I've had yet.
