Mon, 7 May 2012 01:24:09 EST Returning to SparkPeople Happy Saturday! I just re-joined SP after about a year of not participating.

I'm 45 years old and have been happily married for 20 years. We recently relocated to Orlando from St. Petersburg bcuz my husband got a promotion.

Taken from another team: <BR> <BR> OK we all like it when others tell us they are proud of us. We all like that extra pat on the back and yes we need that. But we get lost and forget it is ok to be proud of ourselves also. I am VERY guilty of this and I know I am not alone so for just a brief moment give yourself permission to be proud of something you have done small or large.
