Making a change!

February 2013 will be 4 years since I joined Spark People. I love all the resources available here & have made some great friends. The past couple of years since moving from Missouri to Washington have been full of ups and downs. I have dealt with the stress & depression by eating. Unfortunately I have gained a lot of the weight I had lost back so am starting over again. Here's to 2013 being a better year!

Thanks Martha for your continuing support. It helps so much to have spark friends behind you when restarting. It makes what seems at the moment almost impossible change to yes I can do this. Let October be the month that when looking back we can say that we are refocussed and totally back on track.
Have a great day! emoticon emoticon

Sorry you're having trouble sleeping, too. Usually, I fall asleep as soon as I lay down, and it's STAYING asleep that's the problem, if anything. For the past week, I can't seem to GET to sleep. Hope you're right about things leveling out with the time change. And hope you're otherwise well, my friend. :)

Hi MARTY, thanks for reading my blogs. I am so busy this year so I decided to blog daily to keep in touch. It does work well for me.
I am wondering how your garden worked out this year. I only managed to plant 2 tomato plans. My go to is Early girl and it PRODUCED. BETTER BOY was definitely not better. Thanks for keeping up so often. I am hoping staying indoors will give me more time to Spark. I am hoping to get my HP windows 7 fixed. I am so surprised Microsoft made a lot of mistakes with SURFACE,
HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
