Happy New Year everyone!!! I so have missed you all. This has been a busy start to the new year. But I have not stressed or over exerted myself. Prior to the Christmas holiday I ended up in the emergency room with a blood pressure of 201/180. We do not know what caused it but I REFUSE to allow stress to contribute to an untimely departure from the life. I have learned in a short time to walk away!!! Many don’t understand and I refuse to explain. I am still struggling with the weight gain but I REFUSE to ever smoke again. God has truly blessed me and I will not turn back. I am on day 286 and I could not fell better... I am excited about making the one year mark. Now I have had some crazy cravings. They have been really strong and I had feed them with food but now I must find another way of getting past them.. I am open to all suggestions!!! I so have missed everyone’s insightful conversations and unwavering support. I know that a GREAT part of my success is attributed to the support and love of each of you here. I brag about you all. I feel as if I have a blog of long lost cousins and we are rekindling our relationships. Thank you all so much for the love and support. 2019 is going to be the best year yet!!! Wish mush LOVE to each of you and your family.. Good health to you all!!!
