Progress from January to the end of March 2012
Golden Birthday June 2011 My arms are looking so much better! Thank you Jillian Michaels.
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
A lot in my life needs to change and I'm going to make sure that 2012 is the year for it. No more looking back. Time to start over and make myself into the person I had always hoped I would become. Losing 30 pounds is not the mountain that I've made it out to be nor will it fix everything there is to be fixed about me, but it's a good direction to start. Looking for new friends so feel free to add me.

I'm a prairie girl through and through. The wind stirs my soul and the scent of cut alfalfa and muddy river reminds me of who I am. I'm attending USD this fall for my masters in social work, I have two dogs, and I love reading, writing, and being generally geeky.
books-suspense, horror, poetry, philosophy and calvin and hobbes. movies-What Dreams May Come, All This and Heaven too, shawshank redemption, and Shrek. tv-mad men, walking dead, and old school nicktoons. music-the killers, Foo Fighters, Mumford and Sons, Avett Brothers...too many to list really

Good to hear from you, Brados! Yes, that is a tree behind me in the photo-one of the wonders of living with a parent is not getting a say in the decor lol It's not exactly a christmas tree just a fake pine tree decorated with lights and birds currently.
I'm getting my masters in Social Work and I plan on becoming a licensed clinical social worker and be able to do family counseling down the road. There are many opportunities with this masters so I'm very pleased that I'll be starting in the fall and it's only a 2 year program. Thanks for your interest and good luck with your own drinking buddy battles ;)

First, I apologize for taking so long to thank you for the sparkgoodie you sent me - thanks for thinking of me. Much appreciated.
Secondly, great progress photo, you can certainly see your work paying off as you look great and nice blog update as well (as far as the drinking buddies - I admit to struggling with the work buddies weekly trips after work on Thursdays to the bar for Beer & Taco Bar night - life is a struggle, its all about balance I guess :)
PS - is that a Christmas tree I see in the background of your progress photo :) anyway, it sounds like you are definitely making inroads to your goals - wish mine were advancing like yours - keep up your good work WICKED - sometime you will have to share (if you want) what the Masters degree you are pursuing is like - how many years, etc - I stopped after my bachelors degree - what will you do with your Masters - teach collegiately? etc - anyway, just a topic if you are even bored
have a great weekend WICKED - and sorry again for taking so long to get back to you
