Another New Year's resolution

I mentioned in a previous post that one of my New Year's resolutions was to blog more. So far that's going pretty well. I have missed 2 days in this month, but that's not too bad. Another resolution I have is to get healthier and lose some weight. Original, I know...not! But I really need to pay more attention to my health. Up until about 5-6 years ago, I never really had a weight issue. But once I went into premature menopause (thank you, Turner Syndrome), my metabolism ground to a screeching halt, and I could no longer get away with eating the same crap I always had. So the pounds starting piling on...Especially since becoming a mom (stress eating, anyone?)...But here's the thing...aside from hating that I'm so heavy now, my main concern is, I don't want to develop all kinds of health issues. I don't want Elizabeth to have a mother who is sick, low energy, etc. I don't want her to have to take care of me by the time I'm 60, is what I'm saying. And I want to feel good about how I look. I want my old clothes to fit again! So, I'm feeling like now is the time to "get healthy." For Elizabeth, and for me!

You can do it Anne! You're a very determined person who has already accomplished amazing things (single-handedly raising Elizabeth just for one!) -- there is NOTHING you can't accomplish once you set your mind to it!
