Salutations! I'm a divorced mother of four awesome children. I work part-time at the local public library as a circulation clerk. I am also going to school part-time. Right now I am working on a Bachelor's in General Studies with a minor in History. I hope to graduate in late spring of 2014. After that I plan to get a Master's in Library and Information Science. I'm in a wonderful relationship.

After struggling with depression for most of my life, I am in a good place now and happier than I have ever been. The only thing that could make it better would be losing weight, having more energy, and reaching optimal health so that I can be truly "41 and Fabulous."

Update as of 12/10/13: I was going to rewrite this intro, but nothing much has changed since I wrote it. I weigh a little less than I did. I'm struggling with depression a little more than I was. Everything else stands. I've been off SP for months. I'm trying to renew my effort to be healthy and lose weight. I'm worried about being able to stick to it, but I'm also excited about the possibilities.
