I am a Christian, cancer fighting, married, homeschooling mom from Oregon. Spark is special to me. I joined MANY years ago and successfully lost almost 60 pounds. In the following years, I got complacent and the weight began to creep back on. Then in November of 2013, our world was turned upside down with a diagnosis of a very rare, incurable cancer. Since then, I have had six surgeries, spent over 130 nights in hotels and on the road, and taken comfort in food... Which has led me to a heavier weight than I've ever been at. My first major cancer surgery included the removal of almost half of my upper jaw and palate, which I had rebuilt in an even bigger operation in September 2014 using parts from my left forearm. I had back issues prior to the cancer, but the time on the road and gaining weight exacerbated those issues. Just a few years ago, I was doing 5 miles a day and Jillian Michaels' workouts several times a week, plus weights, but my new body doesn't allow such strenuous workouts. In April of 2018, I finally decided enough was enough and began the ketogenic lifestyle. I have several friends who've had long term success with it, so I have lots of support. In 13 months I've gone from 217 to 151, and a size 2X to a L. I'm elated with the results and the change in food has alleviated a lot of chronic pain and insomnia for me as well.
