Northern Minnesota Mom

I am a 51-year old single mother of two sons, working in a research and outreach center. I joined SP in May of 2009 and it is the best thing I have done for myself in a long time.

When I left my marriage (November, 2008) I was overweight, depressed and had very little self-esteem. Today I am down to a size 16 (started out a 22-24), am no longer depressed and my self-esteem grows every day.

I am a 51-year old single mother of two sons, working in a research and outreach center. I joined SP in May of 2009 and it is the best thing I have done for myself in a long time.

When I left my marriage (November, 2008) I was overweight, depressed and had very little self-esteem. Today I am down to a size 16 (started out a 22-24), am no longer depressed and my self-esteem grows every day. I have my bad days but SP has taught me how to deal with the ups and downs without falling back into unhealthy habits; and my Spark Friends support and motivate throughout each and every day. I believe that I will reach my weight loss and life goals by using the tools I've learned; and as long as SP is here, I will be here too.

SP, its staff and its members are nothing short of a miracle in my life.

Yes you more than likely will be worn out after those little tykes visit, but it is a warm and happy worn out when it's dealing with children. I agree happiness and health for all is a wonderful wish.

Hi Leanne! Thanks for stopping by my page and blog post! You have had many changes to your life in my absence! Good for you! You have a drive to get to Grand Rapids, but I've always liked that town. For a little town, it always seems to be so alive with lots of hustle and bustle going on. Congrats on your relationship with Mike! I agree that the online dating thing can be a fright!

So what would be your one wish for today?

It is another glorious day! Hope it is a good one for you!
