It's the End of the World as We Know It and I Feel Fine

By Advsinwtloss @advsinwtloss
So this Friday is the end of the world. So I wanted to just post on my blog one last time to say goodbye. I really appreciate all of the love and support I've received in the last year I've been blogging. Farewell cruel world!!!
Did you really buy that? I think so many people are past the whole "end of the world" thing. At least a lot of my friends and family are.
BTW, I did say something on my Facebook page and my Twitter about the Connecticut school shooting. It was brief, but I would like to expand on it. Words can not express how I feel about the Connecticut school shootings. I'm the daughter of a retired elementary school teacher. I'm also a child of divorce and from a small town (Note: Newtown is like 30,000 people in my hometown is like 5,000), so I can relate to the shooter in a very strange way. It just really breaks my heart to think about all of those times I went to visit my mother at school after I graduated from that school. Teachers and staff would greet me in the hall. Even some of my mother's former students would greet me in the hall. It is such a wonderful place, full of hope and love. How someone can go to a place like that and kill people just is unfathomable. The sense of security as well as love and innocence is certainly lost in Connecticut and I'm sure it will take a long time to get it back. At least the victims will never know any kind of pain again.
Anyway. With that stuff out of the way, let's get down to regular blog business.
I never did a one year post on November 27th like I wanted to. So I do want to thank everyone for reading and all of the love, support and participation I get here. I look forward to getting more in the future because I intend on continuing on my journey no matter how rocky the road may get. I've tackled way more difficult things in my life. I've always been a "Road Less Traveled" type anyway.
I also wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, or as I always say "Merry Christmas or whatever you celebrate". I haven't tracked in a few weeks, believe it or not, but I'm recovering from my health scare pretty well. I hope to be back to 'normal' in the next few weeks.
Happy New Year to everyone too. It's funny because I always say we should not make resolutions and try to improve ourselves year around and not only do it on the first of the year. Well, I'm making a resolution to get back in to that Weight Watchers state of mind and start to track and get back on the way to getting to my goal. Amazing I'm still hanging in there after five months of being "off the wagon". Better things are coming!
This is my final post this year. See you all in January!
As always, thank you for reading!
