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!

Hi Martha, thanks so much for your support and encouragement! It has been a wild ride and now that I am back home, it will take some time to readjust to my much quieter life again. Restarting the weight loss journey again one day at a time. Hope you had a fabulous summer! emoticon

Martha the rice recipe is great with pork, chicken and I'm guessing it'll work with turkey too. If you didn't notice it has NO SALT added and it is not missed either.
Have fun with the children.
Have a blessed Friday. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hello Martha,

Thanks so much for taking time to read My Home Gym blog. It took a lot of time and cleaning to get it back the way it was. Glad that part is over!

I really miss my granddaughter though; I cried when they moved out, she was my first grand.

Have a great week my dear friend!

Hugs and kisses!

Hi Martha,
Thanks for stopping by my blogs, I do appreciate the support.
Did you work on your children's yard? What a great mom. I'm sure it felt good to be out moving after the drive.
Take care

Hi, Martha - just stopping by to check in and say "hey." You've been on a bit of a merry-go-round of late with all the family events and the traveling, but it sounds like grand fun! Hope you and DH are well and happy, Friend. Thank you for your encouragement on my feed.
:) Gail
