Island Life...

I've been roaming around the country lots since joining SP in 2008. I started out in PA, then moved to VA, then to FL and MA, and now to Hawaii. My husband's job keeps us moving, but I love it. Its how I grew up as a navy brat, its all I know.

Moving to HI was a stressful time - I immediately had surgery to remove my thyroid (suspected cancerous nodules but turned out benign) and my oldest started college in PA 5000 miles away from home. I continue to struggle with weight ...

Moving to HI was a stressful time - I immediately had surgery to remove my thyroid (suspected cancerous nodules but turned out benign) and my oldest started college in PA 5000 miles away from home. I continue to struggle with weight during our time here.

Last October we found out that my husband will be retiring after 20+ years in the military. We are stressing about his having to job search from our remote location in HI. Our DD has decided to graduate a year early and plans a gap year for next year. Our oldest is graduating from college next June.

Many changes on the horizon for our family but I'm going to start our new civilian life in a healthy frame of mind and body!

Thanks so much for your kind words on my blog! I'm inspired and encouraged so much by my fellow sparkers and that's what gets me through those moments when my brain says "carrot sticks" but my tastebuds scream "go for the chocolate" emoticon emoticon emoticon
