More major changes. I am back home in SD and so grateful. I loved my experience in AZ and I have made some great friends, but my heart is here. I am realizing that I have been so concerned about everyone else and put myself last. Now everyone else is doing just fine and moving on with their lives and I am stuck at my highest weight ever. Back in 2007 I lost 30 lbs and was feeling great. I let someone else's fear stop me from continuing and put it all back and even more. No more. I am trying to deal with all of my issues now and allow myself the ability to be loved and that I deserve to be happy.

Lots of things have happened in the last year. I moved across country from South Dakota to Arizona - on my own! My life is my own and I can no longer blame anyone else for what I am doing or not doing and so on and so forth. My move is complete, I am settled in at my job and my hours are very convenient for working out. And the sun is always shining here!

Looking back at my photo from my sister�s wedding on June 9th really made me think. I have been in denial for so long about how I looked. I had absolutely no idea I was as big as I was. I always try to remain positive and perhaps this is the reason I don�t have very many photographs taken of me. Now here is the deal! I can sit and wallow in what I look like now - or - I can do something about it! This journal is just the beginning of what I hope to be an exciting journey of self discovery. If I had a �totem� flower, it would be a rose and right now I am closed tight protecting my self against the outside forces that threaten me. However, in order to experience all that life has to offer, I need to bloom and show myself and the world my true beauty within - only then will the outside match the inside.

I plan to take a proactive approach to my recovery. Sparkpeople! Al-Anon, and self-help gurus like Jack Canfield�s Success Principals, Cheryl Richardson and Deepak Chopra.

I am working on a reward, inspiration, etc Jar to help in my recovery. I think I will call it THE JAR and it will hold rewards, successes, journaling ideas. Anything that will help me to succeed on a daily basis. Of course I have my first 30 day reward which is a massage.
