My Birthday Gift to Myself
Thursday, January 29, 2009
09 is the year for change. I'm 56 years old. A couple of decades ago, after some soul searching of a much needed change in my life, I became a single mom of two wonderful daughters. I was also in college seeking a degree in Deaf Education. Somehow, I managed to work 3 part time jobs while finishing my full time coursework and still be there for those two precious girls.
Now my path is one of taking better care of my physical body. I'm learning about percentages of different nutrients needed to not only be healthy but to lose weight. I am so grateful for all of the member's postings, the recipes, the tracking tools, the videos etc, etc, etc. What a great gift. Today is 1/29- it's my birthday and my gift to me is to be more gentle, kind and a great friend to myself and others.
