Guess it' s time to update my info. When I started Spark I was just about to turn 60 and weighed 190 or so. I'm now 62 and holding pretty steady between 163 & 165. Haven't reached my goal of 155 but did get down to 157 for almost a month. Of course, I haven't been doing all the things I did when I first started. Still need to work on turning those things into daily habits but I am a "work in progress" and in much better condition physically than I was when I started. Taking it day by day ...

Thanks for reading my many blogs! You're right, a big part of the emptiness is not having anyone who needs me. I find myself wishing my daughter would have a baby, married or not, so she'd need my help.

It's so strange, I'm taking all these steps putting together a new life but it doesn't feel real, it feels like any minute I'm going to get in the car and go home. I'm not sure if this is because I'm ambivalent about leaving or what.

You are so sweet! I already have the kitchen looking a million times better.

I appreciate your support. It's so strange to walk away from a home and a day-to-day life that I put 15 years into, but on the other hand I was trying to live in denial of things. I just need to ride this out for a while until it becomes my new normal.

Thank you for the flowers! Things are a little crazy for me right now, I'm separating from my husband and moving to the city, but I'll write about it all soon.

Thanks for reading my "whiny" blog. The knee does feel better. Will get back to exercises tomorrow, but, not quite so vigorous until Saturday. Thanks for reminding me to be patient. Have a great "Mother's Day weekend!
