Northern Minnesota Mom

I am a 51-year old single mother of two sons, working in a research and outreach center. I joined SP in May of 2009 and it is the best thing I have done for myself in a long time.

When I left my marriage (November, 2008) I was overweight, depressed and had very little self-esteem. Today I am down to a size 16 (started out a 22-24), am no longer depressed and my self-esteem grows every day.

I am a 51-year old single mother of two sons, working in a research and outreach center. I joined SP in May of 2009 and it is the best thing I have done for myself in a long time.

When I left my marriage (November, 2008) I was overweight, depressed and had very little self-esteem. Today I am down to a size 16 (started out a 22-24), am no longer depressed and my self-esteem grows every day. I have my bad days but SP has taught me how to deal with the ups and downs without falling back into unhealthy habits; and my Spark Friends support and motivate throughout each and every day. I believe that I will reach my weight loss and life goals by using the tools I've learned; and as long as SP is here, I will be here too.

SP, its staff and its members are nothing short of a miracle in my life.

How's your week going? I see our temp's are going to dive this week. We have actually had a pretty nice fall.
Too bad we had those two frost's. The gardens would have been amazing then.
I was able to get 30 pints of apple sauce canned and still have 2 bushels of apples left. I'm trying to decide what to do with them. I think I'll give them to hubby to make cider with.
I hope your week is going well
Hugs

What are you going to do this weekend?
I just finished three crazy busy days off and now go back to work day shift thru Monday.
I got a lot done though.
How did your roof turn out?
I hope you have a wonderful weekend and have a chance to relax.
Hugs

Yes, meeting small goals is very motivating and they lead to reaching bigger ones. Thank you for your support.
