I have an interest in keeping that passion for letter writing aflame, not because it means stationery or stamps stick around longer, but because it means we are still spending time on one another in a world where we move from thing to thing so quickly.
Hannah Brencher

A year has almost come and gone. 2015 will soon be a faded memory. It will be a year of triumph for some and failure for others. I have not done what I should have this past year. I have maintained but have not lost anything else except in this past few weeks. I am going to be a different person in 2016. One with more determination than 2015. I can do this, I know I can.

I am not going to be the same person I was a year ago. I am not going to be standing in my own way, yet I am going to adopt ways in which I will enhance myself even more then in 2015. Each month I will write a chapter in my book about what the month has presented to me and how I have handled it.

My goals are simple. To do the best I can do in any given situation, which for me means taking time for myself every single day. I WILL NOT BE A SLACKER!!!

1.) I will continue to exercise consistently

2.) I will continue to track the foods I eat and learn from my mistakes, but most of all try not to make mistakes I have made previously.

3.) I will continue to drink at least 8 glasses, if not more, daily.

4.) I will continue to log on to Spark People and accumulate at least 75 points or more daily.

5.) I will become more active in the 4 groups that I belong to.

    Good to know u r doing so well with your A1c. I used to be that way until I took Cymbalta. It raised my blood glucose and stayed up even when I discontinued it. I never took new drugs, but made an exception as I was in so much pain and depressed. I wish I'd never taken it.

    By the way, metformin XR is a long standing drug that has heart protective benefits. I was put on it in my prediabetes and PCOS phase.

    Enjoy your long weekend!

    Oooh I like singing Patsy Cline, too! I like the original Seven Bridges Road and didn't even know there was a Dolly Parton version. I'll have to give that a listen. Sounds like we have a few tunes in common: I like singing Desperado, and I really get a kick out doing CCR's Born on the Bayou.

    My favorite covers are ones that belt it out, like the Beatle's Oh Darlin' and Aretha's Chain of Fools. :)
