My name is Sarah, and I'm trying to lose weight for a few reasons: 1. For a happier me, 2. For my family and friends, 3. For that special someone. :)

I can't honestly say that I've struggled with my weight all my life, I gained it during a long bout of depression. I've never been much of a snacker, but the amount of exercise I did declined while I was depressed and now I'm stuck in a lethargic rut. I took kick-boxing as a summer class a few year ago, and I still do my Sensei's program every day, so that's probably kept me from gaining more weight.

Anyway, feel free to comment on my page! :)

    Hey girl!
    I am thinking about you right this very minute and hoping that you're have a great day.
    BTW, are you still with us?
    I miss your blogs! And I miss you!!! emoticon

    Shhhhhh ... (can't let any of your family read this) - Those bruises might just become your best friend for as long as they last. I mean, even after the pain has long subsided, as long as you got those bruises you oughta be getting the royal, wait on me hand and foot treatment. Oh, and even from strangers!

    Seriously, though, I am truly sorry that you are going through this. Praying that it is all healed up soon. In the meantime, however, and when you are feeling well enough to enjoy it, do milk it for all it's worth. emoticon emoticon
    LOVE YA!

    Hey girl!
    I haven't been able to stop by for a loooooong time - Taking care of Mom takes nearly every minute of every day. Still, I miss you and I hope you are doing OK. If I read your Mom's status right (a day or so ago), it looks like you've just gone through wisdom tooth surgery. OUCH! emoticon
    Anyway, if that did happen to YOU ... then I sure hope your recovery is swift and as painless as possible! I think of you often even though I am MIA, and I miss reading your blogs - Which, by the way, are long overdue!
