Wow 2012 was a short ride but so worth it. I graduated with my Medical Assistant diploma, made it through practicals and was hired at the same clinic and then went on to become certified. Yes I now have a title!!! CMA (AAMA). For the last few years I felt Like I was in a holding pattern. Starting school, going through a divorce, living life as a single mom, then meeting the most wonderful man in the world and planning a wedding. Getting married, moving. It all felt as if I was never going to start living. I was just circling the airport. The whole time the song by John Waller "While I'm Waiting" played in my head and heart. Even after moving here and going to school to finish I was "holding". Magically one day, it all came together. (Shortly after I was hired) my brain kicked in and said "We've landed" now lets get down to business. So here it was after all that time I just wasn't sure how to live. With the help of my wonderful husband Kevin and my beautiful daughter Jasmine I am now finding my way back to the land of the living. I have always known who I am and what I wanted I just couldn't seem to get there. My husband has helped me see me. How beautiful I can be. It is only because of his love, faithfulness and trust that I am opening my life to a whole new world. In opening that world I know I must now set goals for the future. Part of that goal is weight loss so that I can enjoy life and be healthy with the most wonderful family in the world. This year I have also seen our son Josh (19) start opening up to me and realizing I am here to stay and that I love him as if he were my own son.

    Hi, I wasn't sure if you saw this post regarding protein powder so I am posting it to your Spark page...

    I buy my whey protein from the Vitamin Shoppe online. I use "Designer Whey" protein powder, I like the flavor of it and I use both strawberry and natural... I use the strawberry in yogurt or smoothies... but,I also use the natural in yogurt, smoothies, and also in pancakes, gravies, etc...Here us the link:


    NOTE: They have 2lbs containers on sale now for 17.69...

    I have found that, for me, it is cheaper to get it online, because they always seem to have a sale and GNC, the only health store I can get to, always sells the 2lb containers for about 40.00...

    Hopefully others people on the team can give you more suggestions on other brands, etc... but in the meantime, you can check out Designer Whey on the VS website, or check-out other brands, etc.

    Also, Designer Whey is low carb; the nutrition value for the strawberry is:

    Calories: 90
    Fat: 1.5
    Carbs: 2
    Protein: 17.5

    How come you don't have any comments? I get to be the first? Thanks for the goodie. I'm so glad you are finally getting some sleep. I really could use some too. Sleep issues run in my family. It would be nice to wake up feeling refreshed one morning like you see in those darn Folger's commercials!
