emoticon Hello It's me! I'm back online and get this I now have a webcam and mike so look out emoticon I might start video blogging. I'm excited, but I have to learn how first and then come up with something to say. LOL!!

Time for update since it's been awhile since I've written.

1. Back pain was under control as I had an epidural in my lower back this past Dec, I felt great for awhile but now the pain is slowly creeping it's way back in. I suppose a call to the orthopedist is in store soon. The good news is that my Fibro, while it has been an issue at times, it's been better. PTL!!

2. Actually went out of my comfort zone. For those of you who don't know I went through a yucko divorce April of 2011. Anyhow I got back into the dating scene for awhile. Although the man I was dating was a great guy and treated me nice, it just wasn't a good fit as we were not on the same page on some important things. I miss him dearly. We just broke up this week and it's turned my world a bit upside down. The good part is that I now have more time to dedicate to the Lord and spend more time with the Single Mom's ministry that I am on.

3. Made it through the holidays. I was a lil depressed in Dec as it is an anniversary of my mom's death in 1995 and her birthday is also in December. Thankfully I had the great support of friends and ended up having a wonderful Christmas and New Year. I had joined a challenge to maintain my weight over the holidays. In the first weeks I had managed to lose 4 lbs, but I'm pretty sure I gained them back and then some. Haven't done my final weigh in so we'll just wait and see.

4. I really don't know what my goals are as far as weight loss and such. I have so many things going on that for now my focus is on other things. But I am still trying to eat healthier if nothing else. What am I focusing on? I am determined to get my apartment back in shape. I've been in chaos (can't have anyone over syndrome) for far too long and I am ready to break free. I am taking baby steps to declutter. Last weekend I managed to get rid of 2 giant sized trashbags of clothes. Wow did that feel empowering!! This week I clearned my computer desk and that feels great as well!

While I've had some ups and downs I'm optimistic that 2013 is going to be a good year!
It may not be the year I hit goal weight but I'm okay with that! I'm just working on one positive step at a time! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Glad to hear that you are making those baby steps, and have had support for those days/weeks that were difficult for you.
    I too have not decided what steps I want to take as this year has gotten started.
    My name is Ravyna and I am a leader on the Christian Women with Depression team.

    FANTASTIC, sweetie!!! Keep on making those babysteps and you'll make progress with relatively no discomfort!! After all, if I just have to pass up eating a cookie right now - I can get through this. Don't have to worry about later, just right now. That's the spirit behind my reminders this 3-day weekend to NOT SNACK.

    emoticon to look out for yourself - good for you!! emoticon
