Update 1 year on (1/1/2014)
If you told me a year ago that I would weigh 30 kgs less in 12 months, I would have been hopeful but unconvinced. I have a long way to go but I am liking the changes I am undergoing. I can now buy clothes in 'normal' shops and I don't avoid mirrors as much.
In 2014, I want to build on what I have started. I need to nurture myself and bring grace into my days. I need to find balance in my home and work. I need to make time for myself non-negotiable.

From 2013...
I usually come fairly low in my list of things to do! After the kids, work, house, garden, partner, friends and all the rest, I haven't had the time or energy to look after myself. The trouble is you don't realise that respecting yourself actually helps you to be effective in the other areas of your life. So, 2013, you are all about me!!

    THANK YOU so much for your positive thoughts on behalf of my car accident. Because of my injuries, I'm only able to sit short periods of time while visiting the SP website. I'm grateful to you for your friendship and support. Have a beautiful and blessed Monday!
