The day I stepped on a scale and it said 201 pounds (I was 20 years old) I decided I needed to lose weight. I lost 50 pounds on my own, but have gained back 25.

Thanks for stopping by my Remind Me Why I Care blog and offering me encouragement and support during a very difficult time. Thanks for not condemning me for putting my thoughts out there, but rather encouraging me. I am feeling stronger right now, and even though my situations have not changed, I am feeling better able to cope, and trust that during this time I can see my way through some things that I am unable to see when in despair. Blessings for your support, and best wishes on your journey.

Happy holidays, Merry Christmas, and peace for 2011!
2011 looks like two legs standing tall and strong (that could be you!)
2011 has double #1s, for personal victory and private focus for yourself!
2011 has all the promise of a bright and shining new year!

Life is what you make of it, right, my SparkFriend?!
All the best for you!
Jocelyn
