I want to say hello to everyone first off.
I need to back up to 01/2008 I signed up on but did not get with the program. Then in September of 2009 I made a life changing decision, to start taking care of me. I have spent most of my life taking care of my children, his children and several nieces and nephews that we raised. That was over a 16 year period with my second husband. Oh and we cant forget taking care of darling husband. I had gotten to the point finally in my life when all the kids were grown and gone, that I needed to be a little selfish and take care of me. I joined SP and between September and December 17th of 2009 I had lost 36 lbs.
Well in the middle of December my perfect world kind of fell apart, and SP was not my main focus any longer. (Which I should have never lost that focus.) After lengthy discussion with my husband we have decided to file for divorce ( we do remain friends) if not now then it definitely would be later and we would NOT be friends. We decided that he could take a month to move out and get situated. That was a very hard month. This may sound funny to some but there are still feelings there. You can not be with someone for 16 yrs and walk away emotionless. Well he has finished moving out and we are all good.
Now the other thing. Back in April of 2009 I started a new job, completely different from insurance that I had worked in for 15 years. With the new job I had taken I had become the person I hate, ( that pesky bill collector that calls during dinner) I work in the finance business. I loved the people I worked with just not the job, I had decided to give the job a chance for 1 year. Well I had an offer come across this last Monday that would put me back into the insurance business and I accepted it.
Even though I have not been on here in almost 2 months I did continue to watch what I ate, but no exercise did not have the ummmpphhh or the want to's to do what I should have been doing. I did continue to lose weight but not at the rate I was before. So now i am back into the game and I do plan to win this game. Just like the New Orleans Saints winning the Super Bowl
for the 1st time.
I know with the help of Spark People.com I can continue on the journey with a fresh outlook and new determination. So if I still have some spark friends let me know you are still on here and how you have been doing. I am anxiously waiting to hear from you guys and gals.
I know this is a little long winded, but I just had to get it off my chest. Now for my new re-beginning.
Good Luck on your own journeys.
