one word

-encapsulate the year 2010 in one word. explain why you’re choosing that word.
now, imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2011 for you?-

lost and found.

i lost my job. for over a decade, i was largely defined by where i worked.
i lost my health. as the number on the scale continued to climb, so did my blood sugars.
i lost my way. i wasn’t sure what i wanted to do with my life.

then i started to find things.
i found a medical weight management program.
i found the strength and determination to begin losing again.
i lost over 60 pounds and more than 20 inches.

i found that as the number on the scale went down, so did my blood sugars.
i found that i could lose my diabetes medications.

i want to continue finding things.
i would like to find more confidence in my creativity, perhaps even use it in a career.
i would like to find financial security.
i would like to find success and happiness in my endeavors.

in 2010 i found that i didn’t need to be afraid of losing.
in 2011 i look forward to finding more of myself.
