I joined SparkPeople 3 days ago. It has been of tremendous benefit to be able to track meals, calories etc. SparkPeople has some much to offer that I am still learning. A new journey is never easy and while I have been struggling with my weight for my lifetime it seems, with the onset of my 50th birthday I have taken a new outlook on life. I am semi retired. I worked for 13 years in social and community service. Every day was committed to serving others and I loved my work deeply. I was a classic work alcoholic. I also became the sole bread winner for my family due to an auto accident my husband was in in '89'. So there was never any time for me and now I truly see the effects of it.
SO, I have chosen to take my life back at 50. I retired from my job in 2007 and have spent the last two years healing my heart, soul and spirit from the abuse of my prior 13 years. I renewed a relationship with my husband and daughters and am enjoying my grandchildren. My husbands health is now stable with me helping him to manage his multiple illnesses. AND at last I am to a point a can look at me and begin to help me. My husband and I are beginning to travel and learn to live as a couple again and loving life together and I realize now.... TODAY IS MY BEST DAY YET!!!!
