Hi Everyone

January 16, 2012, is the day I re-acquainted myself with SP. I wrote this on my sparkpage but I thought today would be a good day to actually post it to the world and show a little accountability for myself.

I hope you all have a wonderful day - Jill


January 16, 2012

Wow, what a difference a year makes. I have been absent, majorly absent, but I am back.

Last April I went AWOL. I let a lot of people down here at SP and let myself down with a lot of other things, but many changes later, plus 15 extra pounds, has brought me back to SP.

I wasn't prepared in my life to accept the changes I needed to make last year, so it has been a time of examining personal goals and understanding myself a little better. I needed to take time off from so many stressors and just be...

That opened myself up to many wonderful things, including meeting Neil.

Another wonderful thing will be a move later this year from Ohio to California. Neil accepted a position in North County San Diego and we will be relocating in April/May this year. He is already there working and I will go a little later. It will also be great to be closer to my family who live there.

So now its time to refocus on some other personal issues, namely weight. Ballooning 15 pounds, although an understandable by-product of all this, has me grousing at myself every morning. I'm done with that!

2012 will be a truly wonderful year and I want to be ready in every way for what's in store. So get ready, here I come!!

    Congrats to you on your newfound joy in life. I can relate to your personal journey and the "readiness" you speak of. I've been back on Sparkpeople for a year after a similar period of MIA, and what a year it's been! Like you, I found love with a wonderful guy who is more compatible with me than I ever could've imagined in my lifetime. I was starting to wonder if I'd ever fall in love again...let alone, with my absolute dream man! Isn't it amazing how things come together once we get our own personal lives in order? Good luck to you with your move and your new marriage...and of course, with your Spark journey!
