Making a change!

February 2013 will be 4 years since I joined Spark People. I love all the resources available here & have made some great friends. The past couple of years since moving from Missouri to Washington have been full of ups and downs. I have dealt with the stress & depression by eating. Unfortunately I have gained a lot of the weight I had lost back so am starting over again. Here's to 2013 being a better year!

Thanks for reading my story, Martha, and for your encouraging comment! Funny how much energy we get from a tiny bit of success, isn't it? Anyhow, I've been inspired to write more, submit more, and hope! What about you? What art project is next? BTW, you get compliments on "Metamorphosis" from everyone who visit us. It's been framed in black with gold brushing and is stunning in the living room. I think of you every time I see it!

Hope all is well, Friend. I'm sorry I haven't emailed you for a while, but with snow coming, I think our notes are likely to get more frequent. :) Take good care!

XO, Gail

Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog about outdoor projects, Martha. If we lived closer, wouldn't it be fun to do them together!?

Thank you, Martha, for the new pair of workout shoes. I DO need a new pair. In fact, I was at the New Balance store this afternoon. They don't have my size in stock. They will have to order it from Boston, so I'll be getting a new pair within a week.
