I have never done this before

Saturday, December 01, 2012

Writing a blog is foreign to me but I do like to journal. The last 6 years of my life have been a transition. I had Rny gastric bypass surgery and lost 145 pounds. I went from a chain smoking over weight coach potato to a active person . My life took a big change again in 2010 when my marriage ended after 19 years as a couple.I have found strength I never knew I had. I have grown spiritually and joined Beginning Experience a support group for divorced, widowed and separated christians. I am a board member for pittsburgh and a team member. I got a promotion & now have a leadership role and work . I was always very shy and now I have become outgoing. In the process of my divorce I physically hit a wall. I had a 10mm kidney stone , then several ovarian cysts.Then last year I discovered I was not absorbing iron after my gastric bypass and depleted my iron stores ,requiring iv iron therapy treatments. The hemetologist also discovered I had a previous undiagnosed clotting disorder. Through all this I gained 25 pounds. I am trying to getback to my goal weight. My last 2 vacations have been to fitness spas and have discovered a love of hiking and ballet barre workouts. I am a work in progress. But I believe sparkpeople and spark coach are just what I needed to get me back on track to reach my goals. emoticon
