Wow! Another month has gone by!! This year is just breezing by isn't it?
It's been a month of fun and reunion for me. I was able to go to my cousin's wedding and see family that I haven't seen for a long time! Some of my relatives even asked who I was because they didn't recognize me. That was an amazing feeling!
Things here are still going great! I am working every day and classes are going well. I made the Dean's List and was offered a scholarship! So, the light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter! I still sit in awe at times at how far I've come. It's amazing to see the difference in not only my physical self, but in my mental self too. I have more confidence in myself and I have more faith.
I hope that each of you find the thing that will drive you to succeed. You can do it and you are worth it!! Life is such a blessing, do what you can to make it the very best!

Happy February 1 everyone! I do hope this month is a great one for you all! This month, I'm going to be concentrating on tracking my food. I haven't been as good this month. I can give all the excuses in the world, but the simple fact is, I slacked off and got lazy. I need to track, it's what keeps me maintaining my weight loss.
As this month rolls around, I think of love. It's the month of love isn't it? There are many people and things that I love. I love my Lord and Savior, my family, my friends, my students, my colleagues. I love my animals, I love my Spark family. But, you know what? There is someone else I love and that's ME! I love myself. I didn't always love myself. I let myself go, I didn't exercise, I filled my body with junk. When I came to the realization that I really did love myself, I started to know that I was better than what I was. I realized that I am important and worth the effort.
You are too! Do what you have to do to be healthy. If it's going on Nutrisystem - do it. If it's having bariatric surgery - do it. If it's just cutting back and exercising more - do it. You are worth it and you deserve it!

I was reading some blogs today and I read one where a gal was having a hard time putting herself first. This is very hard, especially when you have others who depend on you. It was very hard for me because I have a husband, children, students, and friends who depend on me. But, I started putting myself first and you know what - my family, students, and friends have all stood behind me. They have supported me in that effort.
Putting yourself first doesn't mean you are selfish - it means you value yourself enough to say "Hey, I'm important here and I have value." I do have value and I am important. Putting yourself first doesn't mean that you're neglecting those who depend on you - it means you're giving time to the very person they depend on - you.
So, don't feel bad for taking 15-30 minutes, or even an hour for yourself. You deserve it and you are worth it.

Wow, December just breezed right on by. I was busy with school, work, and community events and before I know it, Christmas was here. Wow!
My daughter had her ultrasound and we found out that the baby is a GIRL!!! Woo hoo!! I am so excited!!!
I got a little off track with eating in December. Most of my time was spent at rehearsal for the Christmas musical, to school, or to work, so eating was touch and go, but activity was through the roof.
I hope this year is a good one for you all! I plan to be more active on here. I bought a Martha Stewart disc bound planner and plan on being organized and planned. I hate not knowing what is going on, or forgetting something important! So, this year, I am going to be organized!
Let this be your year!! If there's something that you've wanted to accomplish - DO IT! Don't let another year pass by you. Make this year yours and own it!
