Happy New Year!

It's been awhile since I last much has been going on that I just haven't had much time on the internet.

2007 didn't start out to be a very good year for me. I got sick in May....had surgery in September and I'm finally recovered now that it's December and almost the end of the year. I had big plans for 2007 -- I was well on my way to losing a substantial amount of weight when I became ill and had to sideline that goal for awhile.

But, despite all the setbacks and problems, I still managed to keep off the weight I lost this summer, and a bit more. I lost 32 pounds in 2007. My goal is to lose at least another 70 in 2008!

I know I can do it! It's not easy by any means, but I have a great support system from friends -- some who have the same goals and some who just want to see me succeed.

So, at the end of this year, I didn't meet my ultimate goals, but I did make progress! I came through major surgery and a cancer scare -- and I'm a stronger person for it. I took some irons out of the fire so that I would have enough energy to spend on my own goals and on my family and friends. Being strong paid off -- I didn't gain any weight through all of this, and I recovered just fine, despite some complications. And, the best of all -- NO CANCER. :o)

I'm looking forward to 2008!! I'm going to work hard on my goals and become healthier for my family. :o)

Never look back! :o)
