A lot has happened the past 8 months. I am separated and getting divorced after being with the same person since I was 15. November 3rd will make 12 years of marriage. I have had to go to the very bottom and one more step down before finding myself. I have realized my mistakes and know that I am deserving of love and happiness. Things happen for a reason, so they say, so the reason must have been to know who I am. I am Sarah. I am a mother to four beautiful gifts from God. I am a strong, smart, and deserving person. I make mistakes and bad choices, but I pick myself up and start again. I am not responsible for anyone else's actions and can move forward. It has been a long year so far, but I am a better person for it. It can only get better and I know that I will be just fine.

I have fallen into a deep depression. Between not being able to work out since the 2nd week of July, to health issues with family, and life itself I had practically given up on my weight loss and healthier life mission. But, my family deserves better. I deserve better. I am starting small... very small. I just started physical therapy, since my tendon surgery on Oct. 5th. So, instead of focusing on what I cannot do physically, I've decided to focus on nutrition and mental/spiritual wellness. My first goal is to replace all diet soda or water. I definitely need prayer. So, if you do pray, please remember me.

After putting my all towards this goal earlier this year, I had hit a brick wall. I was put in a cast to, hopefully, heal torn tendons. That was July. That didn't work, so surgery was next. I am finally cast free and wearing a fracture boot. Physical therapy is next. I made a promise to myself. I am NOT turning 30 with the same life. I have to be a healthier, fitter person. I have accomplished one goal; I start school in December. I have waited 11 years to finish college. Just taking it one day at a time.

I had been in a cast since July 9th. Two weeks ago, I had to have surgery to repair and release the tendon on the inside and outside of my left ankle, and have a bursa and part of my achilles tendon removed on the same ankle. I go back tomorrow to, hopefully, have the stitches removed and be put back into a cast for another 6-8 weeks. After that, I will have a walking boot and physical therapy for however long it is needed. Dr told me that I would probably never be able to run, ski, hike, carry heavy loads... etc. I am not going to focus on the negative. I have let this get to me, and have gotten away from SP. I cannot do this to myself. I will continue on, I will be able to exercise, and I will meet my goals.

This past week has been very trying. My husband was diagnosed with Lymes Disease, and I was put in a cast and on crutches for at least 9 weeks. We have four girls, 10, 7, 5 and 2; our 7 yr old has Type 1 diabetes.
My husband is a soldier in the US Army. He has Graves Disease and sleep apnea. This has been very hard for him.
I am so thankful that it isn't worse.. it could always be worse. That thought is what keeps me going. If you pray, please say one for us. Thank you.
