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 support and tip. I am going to write a shortened version of my 'resolutions' and print them out. As for the walking, yikes, I had no idea it would take this long. Am so ready to start a new trail but will plod on until the finish! It has been nice as it is the one thing I have been able to see progress in this past year. Now if only the pounds would do the same.... Hope your new year is going well! emoticon emoticon

... and a Happy New Year to you too! I just wanted to say hi and thank you for sticking with Sparkpeople. I have just returned and have been regrouping/exercising for the last month. I went through a couple year's 'nose dive' and want to let you know that your 'being here' along with one other person is the reason I'm back. ... We never know how simple things can affect others, huh? Thank you.
I'm on the other side of the 'mountain' (Mt. Adams) from you and we're enjoying the snow and cold. The trees have been so enjoying the moisture after a scary fire season. (Goldendale)
I hope that this is a super New Year for you and your loved ones. Enjoy all those 'babies' and family.
At the gym there's a sign that says: "When you feel like quitting, remember why you started." ... i keep it tucked in my thoughts.

Thank you Martha my DIL put it on the computer and it worked fine for her. I went to Spark and every time I click on the message boards the computer had opened the next line up.
DIL has gone so I am out of help. There is something on my computer that she could not remove so I will try to uninstall some tracker that messes up everything. It does not appear in the control panel.
I feel ready to quit . (((HUGS)))) and a HAPPY, HEA emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon LTHY PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR. (((HUGS))) PAT in Maine.
