My life has been turned upside down these past few months. I am in the process of reevaluating my life and deciding what my ultimate focus should be. My daughter is obviously #1. She is my sun and moon and I would be lost without her. Although she is just 6, she is my rock. Everything I do is for her. #2 should be health...yes, should. I have been on sparkpeople for about 5 years now and have lost the weight and gained it back. Like I've heard and thought was complete bull, maintaining is the hardest part about weight loss. It's sad but true. You're on a high from meeting your goal and feel invincible, maybe take a little workout vaca and the next thing you know you've gained 30 lbs back. Three years later, all 70 are back...yikes! Career is #3. During my first SP go around I decided that I wanted to go back to school to become a registered dietician. I am still in school, taking a couple classes here and there while working from home. It's been tough to stay focused with all of the stress and drama going on at home. However, I am determined to finish no matter how long it takes me.

So, onto the source of all the introspection...I have filed for divorce . My decision was not one that was made lightly or quickly. I knew that it was the best decision for myself as well as my daughter. I had high hopes that things would go smoothly since it was no secret that our marriage was failing, unfortunately that was not the case. To put it plainly without going into too much detail, things went about as bad as they could possibly go.

Now to the part that makes me happy....moving on! I am optimistic about the future and am excited to see what it has in store. I wholehearted believe that things work out for the best. While waiting for the best to come I will enjoy the adventure.

Here's the image of my new background. It so perfectly fits my attitude right now.

I hope that new year has found you all happy and healthy. Please keep in touch, I'm sure going to need you around!

Love, Cassie

    Good for you! You look great and your daughter is a doll. I hope things go well for you. I haven't been divorced, but I was in a long relationship with my daughter's biological father and it was bad for years. Like you, my daughter was (and still is) my rock. She is wise beyond her years and kept me grounded during that difficult time.

    Good for you! I'm sure it was a tough decision, but you have to do what is best for you and your daughter, even when it is difficult. Stay strong!
