Welcome to my sparkpage. I've been away for awhile but I've been semi-sparking for the past month or so; walking, trying to be aware of what I eat. I'm down 15 Ibs today; woohoo! (25 Ibs now)
I've been asking God to help me lose weight. (Thanks, God). I've also been visualizing my goal weight, in 10-20 ib increments. For example, when I weighed 285, I visualized 275, then 265, then 260. Now i'm 260 and am visualizing 240 ;-).

The D key on my computer is sticking so I'll apologize here for any missing D's, lol.

A lot has happened since I last posted. My Mom has fully recovered from stage 4 throat cancer, and then a bout with bladder cancer last year. The bladder cancer came back, this fall, but the tumors were successfully removed. Mom is now on her 3rd week of a preventative chemo treatment, and so far, no side effects, thank God. We're all praying that she will remain cancer free from now on.

I published one of my books, a contemporary, humorous children's book called The REAL Poop! A Cassandra Matthews Adventure. It's now available on Amazon, and at Coles bookstore in my hometown.
My first book signing went well, and I recently had to bring in more books to the bookstore because my books sold out; woohoo!

If you know a child who loves animals and hates injustice, check out my book.

    Please keep us updated on how your mom is doing.
    I do a lot of racing and I every year I make sure I get atleast two races in that are fund raisers for cancer things (different forms of cancer have hit my family pretty hard), usually it is breast, this year it is breast and Leukemia and Lymphoma (Team in Training). Hopefully one day soon they will find the cure for all cancers!
