Thanks for your kind words. This was a very personal blog for me but I needed to express what I have been feeling. It is hard sometimes for us to just find the time for us.......and like I have put on my page " If It Is To Be, It Is Up To Me." I can no longer keep making excuses for NOT taking care of me. I will say though that the support I get from the SparkPeople community has been a life saver for sure. So know that we are here if you need us !!! Deana
ALWAY'S REMEMBER YOU ARE WORTH YOUR OWN TIME AND EFFORT !!!!!
SALLYMON, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR COMMENTS ON MY RECENT BLOG. I HOPE IT HELPS TO ENCOURAGE YOU AS THAT IS PART OF THE REASON WHY I POST THEM. I SEE YOU'VE MANAGED TO QUIT SMOKING TOO !! GOOD ON YA - I QUIT 3 YEARS AGO AND DO I MISS IT? NOT AT ALL, BUT JUST LIKE THIS HEALTHY LIFE STYLE, THAT DID NOT HAPPEN ALL AT ONCE AND THE NEED, DESIRE, AND TASTE TO SMOKE DID NOT GO AWAY ALL AT ONCE IETHER, IT TOOK TIME, PERSERVERANCE, AND PATIENCE AS WELL - AND GAINING WEIGHT !!! WELL NOW I AM WORKING TOWARDS LOOSING THAT, LIFE IS GOOD OR AS GOOD AS I ALLOW IT TO BE. I WISH YOU MUCH SUCCESS IN YOUR JOURNEY, I KNOW YOU WILL BE FINE AND ACCOMPLISH YOUR GOALS !!!
