Well ladies I am back. I wish I could say my time away was just a party every day but that would be a lie. I left here at 106 pounds below my goal and was walking in every charity walk as I could even making it a family outing. We had a storm that took out our computer's motherboard and my internet. Business was down after the oil spill and aftermath so hubby and I had to move for work. While he was scoping out the new job market and getting a job, I went to the one place i was sure I could get a job at Wal-mart. I was hired for seasonal help, just for Christmas. They kept me on and hired me permanent after they saw how I worked. After 5 years I had to quit due to the back injury. Got pretty bad, there are days when I can't walk to the mailbox. We came back here where hubby instantly found a job. My doctor and I are working on finding which medication is going to be best for me but with the Thyroid condition I now have the weight is back. Now I am looking for how to get rid of the extra weight without making my back worse. I have a few things going for me, I have determination, desire,all the benefits of Sparkpeople, as well as the knowledge that this is a journey not a race.. Small goals lead to bigger ones. Together we all can succeed!!!

Favorite Quotes include "Happiness is not getting what you want but wanting what you've got" Garth Brooks. Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint on the clouds of doubt,
And you can never tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar.
So, stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things go wrong that you mustn't quit.

    How are you Nomi?!! Thank you for stopping by my blog. Krystle is responding well to a very aggressive radiation treatment. We are still praying that it gets every single cell as this tumor is very aggressive. So all prayers are still needed and appreciated! Thank you soooo much.

    What's new? I don't get on SP much anymore...except for 2 threads on the Hogwarts team I lead.

    Aww, I have been missing you too! emoticon emoticon Though the ankle injury may have knocked me down a few notches, I am by no means out of this! This is my life, and I am changing it one day at a time! emoticon
