I feel the same way. 2011 has got to be better than 2010! I am taking steps towards that goal!

I hope your hubby gets back to his old self again and you guys can get back into your own space. But for the mean time you are blessed to have such a wonderful family to jump in and help you guys out!

Good luck on your weight loss journey!

~NEVER GIVE UP! Because to give up, is like giving in, and to give in, is like quitting and Winners never quit!

I, Paulette, pledge to do everything in my power to become healthier. I will watch the quality and quantity of my food. It will not be easy. I will be tempted. I will not make excuses. BUT, I will stay strong and continue to be focused because I deserve to be skinny and I am worth the work!

Today is my Birthday and my new beginning. I have been a member to Sparkspeople for a couple of years and have not taken advantage of all the wonderful tools on this great website, well today is a new start and I intend to get more involved and help others in order to help myself. A month ago I read an article on this site titled "The Power of Gratitude" it really opened my mind to a new way of thinking and because of this article I have decided to dedicate 2011 to “GRATITUDE” and being thankful for all I have in my life instead of focusing on all the bad things that have happened in 2010. I do want to mention I am a firm believer in all things happen for a reason. 2010 was a tough year; my husband had a stroke and is struggling to make it back to good health. Because of the stroke my husband is not able to work. We lost our beautiful dream home and had to move all our belongings into storage in order to move in with family. Thank GOD I have such a wonderful family.
I made a charm bracelet and put the word “GRATITUDE” in alphabet beads on the bracelet so I will see it every day to remind myself to be grateful. On this bracelet I added a charm for my husband, my family, my friends and my dog. This will be a reminder to me to be grateful and show gratitude daily.
My goal this year is to take each week of the year and focus on one person in my life for the whole week. I plan to reflect on what that person means to me and how they have changed my life. I will let them know how grateful I am to have them in my life. I plan to pay it forward for a change and not focus on “ME” and all my struggles so HAPPY BIRTHAY TO ME IN 2011!! I look forward to meeting many of you in this coming year.
Happy New Year!!!
