New Year, New Life

2012 UPDATE----HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! 2011 was a great year that saw me lose 25 lbs. I didn't quite make my goal of 140 lbs by Oct 17th, but I'm ok with that. I still have just over 10 lbs to go to get to goal and I will accomplish that before summer. I am much healthier than I was this time last year and that's what counts. My son is returning to college to get his Bachelors Degree in Accounting with a minor in Creative Writing. We have been on this weight loss/get healthy journey together ...

My son is returning to college to get his Bachelors Degree in Accounting with a minor in Creative Writing. We have been on this weight loss/get healthy journey together this past year and that's made it much easier. I'm looking forward to 2012 and all the great things it's bringing.

Hi. My name is Debbie. I'm a 56 year old single mom of an amazing 23 year old son who graduated college in March 2011 with an Associate Degree in Accounting and is now a published author. Now that he's grown (and hopefully gainfully employed soon), it's my turn. Most of my life has been spent taking care of everyone else but me. I've finally realized if I don't take care of me, I can't be there for anyone else. After an emotionally devasting 2010, I'm ready to start fresh and built a new and better life. 2011 is my year to become healthy, strong and alive!!!!

Thanks for dropping by. I wish I had bought one years ago now but I am glad your Son finds it so beneficial as well. As for the French, if I don't keep it up I think it quite likely that I will forget so much I might have to go back and revise and I'd rather not do that. emoticon

Thank you so much for your prayers! Our power did stay on, and Ian is resting comfortably after the surgery this morning. So glad we were able to get it done. Happy Valentine's Day and weekend!

I see that you are a member of the SP Class of October 3-9, 2010 Team. I just became a team leader for this group. I started sparkpeople.com on the 3rd of October, 2010. I was wondering if you are still active on SP and if yes, can we be friends? I'd like to help you keep accountable. And of course, have your support as well. Have a SPARKly day!
