Got To Love Myself First ....

It is not just any year, it is THE YEAR. This year is a major year, I will be turning 50 this year and I will be graduating with a degree in Network Security in July 2014.

Here is a little about me, I am a 49 woman who has went through some major life changes. I have been through a lifetime of abuse, I have been through a job loss, divorce after 24 years, I have four kids, they have all moved out now.

It is not just any year, it is THE YEAR. This year is a major year, I will be turning 50 this year and I will be graduating with a degree in Network Security in July 2014.

Here is a little about me, I am a 49 woman who has went through some major life changes. I have been through a lifetime of abuse, I have been through a job loss, divorce after 24 years, I have four kids, they have all moved out now. So the first time since I was 19 years old, I have an empty nest ! I relocated to Northern California (Feb 2012), after living up in Washington State for almost 30 years.

I am in a flux on trying to find out who I am and start caring about me for once in what seems to be like forever, since I have always been looking after everyone else and neglected my own needs and wants for so many years.

I found a good man who gives me the love I have been needing, it is such a refreshing change to have someone that holds your hand and tells you he loves you often through out the day.

I am currently job hunting for that dream job and trying build myself back up after this major life spiral that started in Fall 2006.

Also I am also an obsessed computer g33kgirl anything that has to do with computers I am all over it. I do volunteer tech support, photo-manipulation, database development and more. I was a MS Office trainer, Oracle/Unix DBA, IT Support for 15 years.

I am looking for support friends that I can encourage and they can encourage me also. I am a super nice person and very approachable, I talk as well as listen.

One of the things that brought me here (it was the same day I joined) was I was shopping at the mall, and I had a flashback, of when I was in great shape and how I could wear the cutest clothes.

** Update ** : I may not be budging at the moment on the scale but my clothes are getting loose and I am out of the size 1X and 2X. And for the first time since 2003, I plan to be under 200 pounds and meet my goal weight in 2014 progress is happening slowly but surely.

Okay that is enough for now ... gotta go do my Sparkpeople Tracking :)
