New Year, New Life

2012 UPDATE----HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! 2011 was a great year that saw me lose 25 lbs. I didn't quite make my goal of 140 lbs by Oct 17th, but I'm ok with that. I still have just over 10 lbs to go to get to goal and I will accomplish that before summer. I am much healthier than I was this time last year and that's what counts. My son is returning to college to get his Bachelors Degree in Accounting with a minor in Creative Writing. We have been on this weight loss/get healthy journey together ...

My son is returning to college to get his Bachelors Degree in Accounting with a minor in Creative Writing. We have been on this weight loss/get healthy journey together this past year and that's made it much easier. I'm looking forward to 2012 and all the great things it's bringing.

Hi. My name is Debbie. I'm a 56 year old single mom of an amazing 23 year old son who graduated college in March 2011 with an Associate Degree in Accounting and is now a published author. Now that he's grown (and hopefully gainfully employed soon), it's my turn. Most of my life has been spent taking care of everyone else but me. I've finally realized if I don't take care of me, I can't be there for anyone else. After an emotionally devasting 2010, I'm ready to start fresh and built a new and better life. 2011 is my year to become healthy, strong and alive!!!!

There were a couple of times when I worked at Big Lots that I thought we might have to stay over night. The manager was able to get my son and me home. We had people coming in to buy snow shovels, but we had sold out of them. There were 4 people that showed up for work including the manager and I doubt the store made enough money to pay the workers that day.

At Christmas, there were night crews stocking and I always preferred working without any customers in the store.

Thank you for the Spark Goodie that you gave to me. I lost my Mom in September and became depressed. I stopped Sparking for awhile. My doctor has me on serotonin and after a bout with the flu in late December, I am trying to get back on track working to shed the pounds.
