Demi-Tude

So I'm back. I am sorry to have been gone so long, but life happened. (Yes, I know, that's a shocker.) I did a good job of maintaining my weight for a while after I left. And then, things went wrong with my job, I got depressed, and gained quite a bit of the old weight back.

I have a new job, and despite being ridiculously busy, some of the things that got me depressed and caused the weight gain are gone. So I am excited to start working to get in shape again, excited about ...
So I'm back. I am sorry to have been gone so long, but life happened. (Yes, I know, that's a shocker.) I did a good job of maintaining my weight for a while after I left. And then, things went wrong with my job, I got depressed, and gained quite a bit of the old weight back.

I have a new job, and despite being ridiculously busy, some of the things that got me depressed and caused the weight gain are gone. So I am excited to start working to get in shape again, excited about a lot of things going right in my life right now, I look forward to seeing all my old SparkFriends again!!

I have two primary motivations. First, to set a good example for my children. I want them to see how to live a healthy life. But also, I want them to see that it is ok to make changes when something isn't working.

Second, I need to do this for me. I need to get healthier, and in that, the actual weight is almost a secondary concern. I have asthma, and right now, it is worse than ever. I have found previously that working out regularly helps me to keep it under control, and my doctor says that countless studies agree that exercise does help with asthma. Which means that I have to get moving again, plain and simple.

So here we go, glad to be started again!

"Beautiful Woman Award"

You are the recipient of the Beautiful Woman Award. "Once you have been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3 you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it is good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out,"

Again, Congratulations Beautiful!
Thanks for spreading a little beauty, love, friendship and support into my life.
