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!

Martha, thanks for the encouragement. Yesterday with Erik back on "gym/therapy" schedule I got some much needed rest with a bit of walking and knitting in. I feel better today. Not ready to tackle any mountains but so much better. Hope your family is feeling better too. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Martha, thank you so much for being willing to be my walking buddy for this month. You are already doing a great job with your walking. I on the other hand have to get back into it.

Thank you for all your support. I definitely will check out the link you gave me! emoticon

Hi Martha, I'm back!

Thank you so much for your thoughtful words on my blog; yes my friend, it is so difficult losing both of them and not to mention so close together, but nevertheless, God is giving my family and me strength.

I really appreciate your friendship, it means so much to me.

I hope you have a great week.
