Reflecting on the year

Monday, December 22, 2014

I have a net loss of about 10 pounds for this year. Hooray!
After changing my start and goal weight multiple times that means I've lost around 25 pounds since joining Spark in 2009 I'd like it to be more but at least I'm taking it off like I gained it...5 pounds a year. Right now I'll be happy for that.

I have still not gotten over the shock of this job. I enjoy the commute and some of the people are nice. The changes I made and things I uncovered affected the organization as a whole. Now they have to practice what they've learned. I'm not that hopeful. Layoffs with budget cuts have made us work with a skeletal crew which might work in a company that had good hiring practices. This place faltered.

My family is maturing. Little ones thriving. I hope the older ones find their peace. This has been a family in turmoil for years and perhaps things are on the upswing. I'm too old for drama.

Have a great week. We are all busy.
Merry Christmas and a continued Happy Hanukkah to those who will be off the grid.

    Good job on the weight loss! I'm hoping I will grow up soon and take better care of myself again.

    My job is what I do at home and I am improving thanks to my hubby. We are doing more - making things happen.

    I feel the same way about drama. I want the drama of the day to be nothing more than I am out of milk.

    Excellent job on the weight loss. Really, you lost more considering most gain 5 lbs per year.
    I am glad your family is settling down and you are able to catch your breath.
    Merry Christmas!

    Good for you! I don't want to look back at what I weighed at the beginning of the year. I KNOW I am 15 lbs UP since July. Hopefully my motivation will return, and I will be back at the healthy habits soon.
