Could This Be My Year?

I'd like to begin my blogging for 2011 with a bit of optimism. We're eight days into February and I'm in the process of making my life better. As many of you know 2010 was not a good year for me. My grandmother passed away. I had to move yet again, and then three months into the new lease my boyfriend broke up with me. There were a few other things that happened too, but I won't bore you with the gory details. My weight-loss journey continues, but as of late I've been gaining and losing the same two or three pounds. I actually figure that's not too bad for someone who is an emotional eater and has had to deal with quite a bit of upheaval. I'm proud of the fact that I haven't let myself go and fallen back into old, self-destructive habits.

As I continue to take back control of my life, I'll be moving into a new apartment next month. It's a cute place that's very convenient with regard to getting to work via public transportation. No more waiting in the snow for the bus to come. All I have to do is walk across the street to the subway station. I already have all sorts of ideas for making it a home for me and Topaz.

After I'm settled in, it'll be time to finish up my classes for my copyediting certificate. I'm hoping to do some freelance work in that arena to earn some extra cash. Hopefully by the time spring rolls around I'll be able to meet my weight loss goal and become a Weight Watchers leader. It would bring me a great deal of joy to assist others on their journey and to let them know that although it's not easy, it is worthwhile. Maybe, just maybe by focusing on those things, I can make 2011 my year!


  1. Concatulations on the new apartment and not gaining any weight. I will have to visit you and Topaz. Now that TW bought boots and you'll be living by the subway, it'll never snow again. HAH!

  2. Mario's M here - Congratulations girl. You have done a great job getting your life re-aligned. I'm sure 2011 will be a great year for you because you have a great attitude.

  3. I'm so glad to see you blogging again! And I KNOW that this is YOUR YEAR. I am here to cheer for you, or cheer you... whichever you need. :)

  4. This is definitely your year. I just dropped in to wish you well... and see that you are doing very well! You've really got it all together and I wish you every success.
