I am restarting my weight loss again. New Year, new goals. I am planning on losing 15kgs this year. It is up to me to do this.
I know I have made so many improvements in my life as I can now play with my grandchildren. Which is the most important one. Life is good.
My kidney health is still stable.
Last year I have had to be incredibly strong because of family issues involving my son and his children. This has involved a lot more travelling, driving to Adelaide. Adelaide is 300 kms (200 miles) away from where i live. Two or three years ago there would have been no way that I could have done any of this.
But the most exciting thing for me at the moment is that I am brave enough to go on holidays by myself. I am driving to Mildura Victoria tomorrow because I have been invited to help Susie (SUSIEPH1) cerebrate her 70th birthday.
I know before there would have been no way I would have even thought of doing this. I could not drive that far, it is over 500kms (roughly 300 miles) from where I live. I will be away for a week so I don't know how often I will be able to log onto Sparks but I have got a book so I can record all that I am doing.
So I know how far I have come and the journey is still ongoing and will be for a long time. But it has been so rewarding as I know I have a future and know I can accoplish anything that I want to do.
I have also gained so many friends a long the way. I can only repeat that this journey has opened up so many doors for me personally.
I have meet a couple of other Sparkfriends last year and will be meeting Susie.
What a wonderful experience I have had since being a member. I have grown so much that I have been a team leader for quite some time and loving this.
It has been an experience that I am glad I did not miss.
