I'm a failed-at-retirment teacher, lol, a mother, a widow, and am zooming on my half way mark for weight loss. I live with my two rescue German shepherd crosses, am working a term teaching position, and as anyone who reads my blogs can tell: I HATE WINTER!

In April 2013, I reached the heaviest I have ever weighed in my life, surpassing my full-term pregnancies weights by a good 13 pounds. My energy level was in the toilet, my self-esteem was low, and I can honestly say, I wasn't ...

I blogged about my turn around point (A New Approach) in January. I'm not quite as enthusiastic now as I was then, but I'm still super excited and motivated to get the other half of this weight off :)

Thanks for commenting on my blog. Looks like you are a fellow Manitoban. I feel the same way about winter and this one has been brutal. Enjoy the current sunshine!

For 12 years D and I have faithfully gone on a date every Monday night, missed maybe three or four times, but always rescheduled within the week. We do well talking generally, but I used to overreact on some topics due to my borderline personality disorder. I have put that behind me, but he still hesitates to talk about those topics for fear of my rage. This past week after our discussion he was surprised and then thanked me for not going crazy over the topics. I think we're making progress!
