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!

Thank you so much for your encouragement on my blog Martha. I really appreciate your support. Like you I find often find it easier to keep track of my food in a notebook. I know doing everything online is supposed to make things easier, but I know all of us need to find what works best for us.
Thanks for being my Sparkfriend. emoticon

Thank you for the Valentine, Martha! It's beautiful. I can't imagine the hours you must have spent cutting out each little hole. ;-) I hope you had a good Valentine's Day, too!

Martha, I told him we were going to LOOK, not buy. I have to figure out what I'm going to do with my guest room furniture. I really am not excited about bringing more furniture in my house but if I can sell my guest room stuff or fit it in my office-have to get rid of the huge desk I don't really need then we can consider it. Plus, we went w/o measurements-on purpose so I had a back up excuse. I don't think he wanted the furniture to not match, I think he was showing me what style of stuff he wanted. I took pictures with me cell, so he can look at them again later....Sorry, I'm being devious, but if I spend all his money on stuff-the judge will intervene...that's the threat anyway. The stuff Erik had before was partly a set and partly not, and some of it was not in good condition so we sold/donated it. So he does have a right to "his own" stuff. He will have to decide what is more important to him, the stuff he has or new stuff that might not only displace my furnishings, but some of his collectibles. emoticon emoticon
