People say it all the time--gosh I can't believe it is 2009; but I really can't believe it's 2009! 2008 was a year of adjustments for me: Getting more accustomed to living in Florida away from family, finding a church that makes me feel so good I am beginning to say this is my home now. Most importantly though, was looking within myself to realize what causes me to fall off. The next step will be working on learning how to manage those bumps in the road.

Part of what I discovered about myself was I am AFRAID! Afraid that even if I lose the weight I will still not find what I am looking for. Not knowing what I am looking for! I also figured out I was having a pity party but forgot to invite anyone to join me (LOL). I was kind of living with my eyes closed tightly, sneaking a peek every once in awhile. Major aha; look at myself, truly look. I admit this will be a gradual process.

I feel paralyzed. Prior to our move I had an identity (or I thought I did) and a purpose. I was a mom, a friend, a REALTOR, a community volunteer and a wife. But I don't know who I am, what I need, or what I want to do.

The one thing I know for sure is I have to change what I see in the mirror then maybe I can see WHO is in the mirror. So, I am really going to use Spark People to keep me accountable and my spark friends to keep me motivated. I have realized success in so many areas of my life. I want and need to gain success in getting fit and healthy. Time to get serious!

One of my favorite Bible verses is "Again, I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything for which they are to pray, it shall be granted to them by the heavenly Father. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there I am in the midst of them."(Mathew 18:19-20)

I have seen and felt the love from so many of my fellow sparkers that I know we are gathered together in His name. Together we can succeed, I hope you will join the journey!

Best of luck and enjoy God's Blessings!
