I wanted to document where I am with the goals I set on December 30th of last year. Things are actually moving along pretty well. I applied and have been accepted into a Ph.D program! I will start in the next few weeks. I'm also inching closer to my weight loss goal. I'm only about three lbs. away from 40 lbs gone! So. . . now I just need to keep plugging away and work on my mission statement! Despite my health challenges, it's been a fruitful year so far!
