Life is what you make of it and I am taking mine back in 2009!

Friday, January 09, 2009

Well like many people, I was very glad to put 2008 behind me for many reasons. The Divorce that I went through (final on December 2nd) just about took me to my lowest and caused me to have times of deep depression. Once I made it through the DATE, it has felt much better. I still miss my ex-husband terribly, but at least I am making through the days and nights without crying all the time. I have distanced myself from him so that I can try and get on with my life and face the challenges that come along with that. The holidays were tough but with God in my life and the support of my friends, I made it through it. I feel stronger each day! I just want to say thanks to the many supporters I have on Sparkpeople, I can't begin to tell you how much you all have helped me and how very much I appreciate each of you.

Now for the resolutions:

I am Done being walked on by my family!
I am Done with this weight loss plateau that I have been on for the last several months.
I am going to get moving on the brand new, totally awesome, Lifestyles elliptical at my Y in Springfield and get this weight off my body and look Hot by Year end.
I am ready to see the 200 lb mark be a thing of the past and will do whatever it takes to make that happen.
I am going to be a supporter for anyone else who is going through the things that I have experienced this past year, because I know how devastating it is.
I will make new friends and reconnect with old ones and I will put God in my life more as he is the one that will help me to totally heal.

Again, thank you for taking time out of your day to read my blog and here is to each of us having a great New Year to shine.

    Great Blog... Moving FORWARD...Always moving Forward. Knowing that God has a Plan even when we think our world has collapsed. I always remember that 'None of this is a surprise to God'...

    I was where you are. I never dreamed my life would be as it is now and actually not very much time had to be spent alone. God blessed me with a wonderful man... as well as healing. I continue to heal from deep wounds but like you said, those things you have experienced will enable you to love and understand someone else pain on their journey. May this terrible sadness in your life become the avenue you can personally use to Glorify God and share Jesus with others.

    Keep blogging girl..
    Keep working out... I'm doing it too and not loving it but do it!
    Keep watch on your food choices... we are getting there... slow improvements...

    Smile girlfriend...

    p.s. your pic on this page is BEAUTIFUL!!!
