I've been looking for a group to join with people in my age group. And this looks like a great group of people!
I'm 46 years old, and am facing the empty nest next year when my youngest daughter goes off to college. While I look forward to it for her sake, I thought that I would be facing this as a married woman and have more time to spend with my spouse. I'm not sad that I'm soon to be divorced (that's a happy thing actually). But I'm nervous about coming home to an empty house every night.
One thing that has me hopeful is my Spark Program. I was a previous member but I never really got involved in anything and it quickly faded from my daily routine. I returned at the beginning of July and have fully immersed myself in all that Spark has to offer. I'm hoping that as each month goes by, with my energy level being much higher than it was, that I'll have the confidence to get involved in something that will be fun and interesting. I'll still notice she's gone, but maybe it won't be so sad.
Anyway - I just wanted to say hello, and I look forward to getting to know everyone here.
I commit myself to my challenges with Blue Mountain Dorm, and to working through this next month or two of stressful events.
I have 5.5 lbs left to lose, to meet my goal of losing 20 lbs by September 30th.
