Been 6 years!!!!

Wow well where to start... hhmmm at the beginning would probably be the best place to start. So I'll keep it short but simple; in the summer of 2006 after a trip to back east to see my family I realized I had major problems the first of which was my weight! Oh man I couldn't believe how heavy I had gotten... I had resorted to wearing clothes I could hide myself under and avoiding any camera that might be pointed in my direction.

So I'll keep it short but simple; in the summer of 2006 after a trip to back east to see my family I realized I had major problems the first of which was my weight! Oh man I couldn't believe how heavy I had gotten... I had resorted to wearing clothes I could hide myself under and avoiding any camera that might be pointed in my direction. Soooooo when I got back I made a commitment to find some way to start to learn how to loose weight right and keep it off. I did great for 9 months I lost weight but never reached my goal because I was in an accident.... that dang accident set me back and unfortunately I started gaining weight AGAIN!!!! So since that accident I officially gained almost ALL the weight back.... being disappointed in myself kept me from getting my motivation to start all over again. Thats where I'm at now but I WILL loose it and I know the commitment level and have decided I am back on track:)
Love the tools on Sparkpeople

Thanks for the encouragement on my blog! :) You of ALL the people I speak to, know what we go through as a family in this business. So, did I understand it right that Matt is no longer working for Nathan? But is on his own? WOW. Erik said "good for him!" How did all that work out? Is the auto industry okay out there? We are still taking hard hits, and not sure when it will let up. BUT...Erik has grown a lot as a business owner, and the leader of our family....all of the hardship we've been through has been worth it!
