Hi - This is Kathy. I am 48 writing this, but very very soon to be 49 years old (Jan. 4). My goals for 2009 include getting fit and fabulous - something I remember being in the past. Last six or so years have been very very challenging to my family. Way Way Too Much Loss, Heartbreak, and Stress. I do get high marks though from people close to me for still being sane after all this stuff. I have 2 beautiful kids (21 and 18) and my 3 y/o buddy grandson. I definitely want to be able to keep up with him! My son will graduate from Navy boot camp sometime in August 2009 (he doesn't leave until June) and I'd like for a perfectly shallow goal to be SOMEONE in Chicago to say to him - WOW! THAT'S your MOM????? I also want to be more social and go back to church and secure my finances. Lofty? yes. But I am REALLY up to.....and WILL achieve these goals I have set for myself this year....and beyond. I hope to make new friends here and for SparkPeople to be a major motivating part of my journey. Happy New Year Everyone!
