Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

I haven't posted IN AGES! I'm happy to say that I haven't been in bed this whole time with the dog of depression biting my ass. Things have been very busy with the Master's program at school, a lot of projects to complete at work and I started volunteering at a juvenile prison. I like to think of it as a teen rehabilitation center versus a prison. They have a mentoring program and I am currently mentoring three juveniles (all boys ages 16 to 17). I go after work for two hours on Wednesdays and then four hours on Saturday afternoons. It has been highly satisfying to work with these boys and greatly enjoyable.

I wanted to wish everyone a very happy Thanksgiving! I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend and spend cherished time with your family and friends. We will be going to my parents house Thursday and then I have to work on writing a paper that is due this week (what is the professor thinking??).

So far I've lost 105 pounds and wanted to post before, during and after pics below. The last picture was taken a week or so ago.

I promise to start blogging soon. I am very thankful for each and every one of you and hope that you are all doing well! *hugs*

So happy to "see" you here again and less of you, too! You look great and it sounds like things have really picked up for you! Happy New Year! I will check back more often, now that I know you are back blogging!
Warmly, Barbara
