I just want to thank you all for the warm congratulatory messages you left me, I was very touched by all the kind words. It's weird because in one way it seems like the time has just flown by and in another way it feels like I have been away from SP for such a long time that I don't know where to begin to get reconnected with everyone. I really need to get back on track both with exercise and diet. Although I have continued on my vegan diet I hadn't been putting the time in preparing meals like I should have, pressured for time with my studies I was doing just what was quick and not always the healthiest. I also slacked off on exercise when time got tight so needless to say I have gained a few pounds. On top of the studies work has become very stressful and unpleasant leading me back to comfort eating which I thought I had conquered. But now that my mind is off of studying I intend to move forward. The bright light in my future is that I have decided to retire from the job I no longer enjoy in December when I turn 62 and I am really looking forward to that. Once I retire and take a little time to myself I may try to find a way to put my Nutrition Consultant education to work. I would like to find a Holistic Health Center locally where I could have clients referred to me to work out food plans for them, but we will see where next year leads me. So bare with me as I try to get reintroduced to SP and all of my friends here.
