Well now, yesterday, after a CT Scan, the cancer is back. Planning 2nd lot of chemo asap. Cancer CAN be beaten, and the battle is the Lord's. To HIM be the glory great things HE has done, so loved HE the world that HE gave us his son. Prayers would be welcome though. Praise God for all the support.

I was diagnosed with 2nd degree cancer in August last year. I'd be lying if I said that it didn't knock me for six. Ecstatic to report that I am now in remission! To GOD be the glory, great things He has done ... Weight has gone to pot, but I'm alive to tell the tale! Today is a new day.

Cancer can be beaten! What an awesome God we Serve. 2nd degree lung cancer wrapped around my heart, my lung and restricting breathing, with the 1st degree somewhere in the lymph glands has been beaten Isiaih 53:5, says by His stripes we are healed. We must have the same perspective. God is concerned about your situation, and He already brought healing to it before it even began to manifest. Philippians 4: 6-7; Be anxious 4 nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanks thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God, and the peace of God which passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and mind through Christ Jesus . John 3:16: For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the wills to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's Son. Hebrews 12:12; Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. Make level the paths for your feet, so that the lame may not
be disabled, but rather healed. Watch, by next. Tuesday I will be able to walk strong for chemp therapy take 2 at the Oncology out patient's at Flora Clinic on strong legs. Cancer HAS a name, and Romans 14:10 says;"as surely as I live," says The Lord. 'every knee will bow before me; and every tongue confess to God". Therefore cancer has to bow & confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. He said it, I accept it, so done and dusted is it. .

"Bumps in the road are nothing more than opportunities to take two steps forward and become a stronger person. As long as you keep doing the right things, good things will happen".

This is the result of my Healthy Lifestyle Checkup today.

The scale went up. Woo is me, lol! WHO's to blame? Only ME! Oh well ... I'll just pick myself up, dust myself off and carry on regardless! God willing, I CAN turn this around! This is the day that the Lord has made. I WILL rejoice and be glad in it!

Well, 2011 is done and dusted. I have come a long way, and can visualize myself at goal now! 10 kg's to go. A great big Whoot!!!
2012 will be the year I get there, and then Tone and Shape up. WooHoo! I'm so excited! I can't wait to begin stage two of this journey! Praise God! HE is good!!!

Ready, Steady, Go .....

I am ENOUGH with this weight! Very tired of being tired. It's way too heavy to carry around and it makes me feel like a dog. This stomach thing drives me insane!!!

My body is a gift from God, and I must love myself enough to take the best care of it as I possibly can. I might not be perfect, but God thinks I’m to die for! I see myself at my goal weight, quiet capable of playing soccer with my grandson, and building sandcastles with my granddaughter, waltzing down the beach not wrapped up in a towel from head to foot, lol, and swimming in the sea. In fact, just blending in with all the normal weight folk and being able to do most things. Oh to be able to climb up a ladder, or get under the bed to tackle whatever task is necessary, and not have to ask anyone to do it for me. My goal is to hike the Otto Trail in Knysner, and to participate in whatever is going down. I will dress elegantly, and have more self confidence and loads of energy. I will love myself. After all is said and done, if you can’t love yourself, who can? It’s a long haul, but with the help of God I will succeed! I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4v13

My Goals:
To weigh what I should, to be fit and healthy with a BMI to die for. To look good, be more energetic and have more confident, All in all, to get a life. Ultimately to be totaly comfortable in my own skin and to look good naked!

My Program:
I am on the Dr Cohen program, and am ecstatic to report that I am now 6kg's (13.2lb's) lighter than when I started 4 weeks ago. YES! After reaching my goal weight, God willing, I plan to do the re feeding program. I've never been able to do that on any diet I've been on, and there have been plenty. You know, you get there and then think that you are a star. NOT! The program is intense, and exercise is not recommended at this stage. Once I've lost enough I can then exercise to my heart’s content. I love walking, and I do try to do that as often as possible. Most days that is from my front door into my car, then from the car into the office, and back again. I'm so pleased I stumbled on Spark People! It's motivating, informative and fun.

Personal Information:
I'm Jenny Baker, born on the 18th July 1954. (I share my birthday with Nelson Mandela, the most loved South African). I live in Roodeport South Africa and I'm an accountant, working in Wynberg, Sandton. I have a cheerful disposition, and try not to take life too seriously. No one gets out alive, anyway. I am family orientated. I love to travel, do new things and generally to have a good time. Who doesn't?

Other Information:
I like reading, going to a live show or the movies, having a braai (barbeque), going out for dinner, and dancing. NOT ready for dance with the stars yet, but the trick is to dance like no one is looking. I love music, swimming, walking and keeping busy.
