Northern Minnesota Mom

I am a 52-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.

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.

Thanks for stopping by and reading my first blog in 2015, much appreciated. Yes reading befor bedtimes does end up being a late night for me too when I am reding a good book.

Hope you have a wonderful evening with your family, yes including those cute dogs. Their muzzles look like grey creeping in are they getting up in age?

Thanks for stopping by the cauliflower blog.
It's good. I love potato salad and this dish is going to make my life easier. It's very satisfying.

Thanks Leanne for you awesome comment on my blog about the 74 year old fit lady emoticon lol if I keep going like I have been I wont be able to reach that goal of being fit when I am old!

Sorry it took me so long to get back to on that but I had mouth surgery and it was hurting bad...the 6 stitches are gone now but the roof of my mouth is still swollen making it hard to eat most foods...but hopefully come Sunday I will be able to start carb cycling again emoticon

How are you doing? I hope you had a great Christmas and I hope you have a happy healthy New Year!! emoticon
