I have come to realize that with the changes in my life recently that i have to start paying better attention to what i do. My health is not what it used to be, but hopefully with some work i can gain most of it back. I have recently found out that i have Chrons Disease. Which is a challenge in itself. I find that most people around me dont understand what i face each day. And that most of my family and friends think i just have to watch what i eat.....its frustrating to try and explain to people that i cant physically do things . I know that my family gets frustrated and i dont blame them. I am frustrated with myself often. I am battling depression these days as well. I havent been working and of course that takes a toll on us financialy. So its been a battle for a while. I hope by trying to focus on my health and fitness i can at least lift my self up out of this depression and feel better about myself. That will help my entire family i think.

    Just so happens that I was updating my page and posting a blog on the same day you commented on it, just a few hours later! Thanks for calling me skinny, LOL I'm just going to change my weight to this morning's weigh in. I only weigh in once or twice a month lately, but that may change as I'm just getting back into the groove since about September.

    thanks for the supportive comments on my page, and for the spark goodie too! I love gold stars! LOL

    Yep, nearing my second 10% goal, and considering changing my overall goal to a lower number. When I first started I didn't think that the 135lbs I weighed in high school was attainable, but now I view it as a CHALLENGE.

    Thanks for checking up on me emoticon
