The next chapter in my life....

Sunday, April 14, 2019

From my introduction on my Sparkpage, you can tell what kind of year I had last year. I'll never EVER forget that day February 14, 2018. When I saw the phone number on my phone, I knew I needed to answer the phone but I didn't really want to because I was enjoying lunch with my two kids at a Chinese buffet. As the kids came back to the table and saw me crying, they knew what the call was about without me even saying anything. Cancer was now a part of my life and I wasn't scared because I knew God had it all under control. I had such amazing support from family, friends and team members at work.

Fast forward to 2019. I now need to start a new chapter in my life. Last Sunday, I weighed myself and found the scale read 270 lbs. I don't want to be 270 lbs! Cancer didn't kill me and neither did all the chemo and radiation, so there is NO WAY I'm going to let obesity kill me! I have to make a life style change.

This year is going to be about making changes a step at a time to become a healthier ME!! I realized last year that I AM a strong woman so I know I can do this too!!
