Finally Back

Monday, September 09, 2013

It's been a rough year, but with Jehovah's help, I think I am finally ready to try again.

I worked so hard over a year ago to lose weight and just didn't, so that I gave up. I recently found out I had a thyroid problem. Maybe that was the reason, maybe not, but I am ready to try again. Of course I am heaver than when I started the last time. I know it's not going to be easy, but I really need to succeed this time.

My numbers are still a bit low with the thyroid medicine, but we are working on getting the numbers in the right place. I started working out this am. It wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be, but it wasn't easy either. I have high hopes.

I am sorry for not keeping in touch with anyone. As I said it's been a rough year for me.

We just had our Circuit Assembly this weekend and I really, really, needed it. I feel Spiritually refreshed and took steps to eliminate some major distractions from my life. Necessary adjustments in entertainment among other things. I feel very good about the changes and I know Jehovah is proud of my efforts.

I hope everyone has been well. I look forward to renewing some friends and making some more.

My love and best wishes to all. emoticon emoticon

    Join the club. Welcome back.
I too had a year long hiatus from Spark, and this team (gained 30 lbs as a result)
But health problems again made me realize that I need to be on a healthy track again.
