Each time I leave Sparkpeople and come back, I have gained more weight. It is a vicious cycle that I cannot seem to break.
Since this has been "a year of changes" for me, I decided to give this one more try.
I am going to be leaving my sedentary job soon, and will be going to work as a Dog Groomer. This is something that I learned to do twenty years ago, then worked in the field for12 years. I felt that an office job was more "secure" at that time. I've been unhappy for quite awhile now, and grooming has been on my mind. An opportunity became available a short time ago, and I am taking it. I will be 50 years old in November.....I've spent too much time being unhappy. With the change in my work status, my attitude will change, and hopefully I will be on the right track to losing weight and getting my life back together!
