Decided my page needed an update. Everything on here was still valid, hower let’s just freshen it up, start anew.

Hubby and I and our dog, moved to Annapolis valley NS this summer after 22 years in the city. It wasn’t our intention but life happens, this time was breast cancer. Thankful it was only in the duct, lumpectomy with clear margins, some radiation and “ they say” that I am fine. Well never the same after a cancer diagnosis. I have to see my dr every 3 months for the next 5 yrs. so that put a stop in our full time rving idea. However, we did get out of the city, quieter, calmer area, walking more, eating better.

I have missed spark, but got caught up in fb and pinterest. Oh how I can dream on pinterest! So decided slow wayyyy down on FB. Organize my pinterest ideas and get back here. So many have left, many are still here.

Started eating well after my dx, did great till started selling house, pack, move etc. Been here 5 months and oh past month and half been eating well. Sooo low in sugar and grains. However eating lot more veggies.

I have been deamed a sp motivator... guess it’s my perseverance! But now it’s going to be cos I reach my goals. A few more arthritis isdues to deal with, learning to adapt exercises so don’t wreak my rotator cuff more, hurt my hips etc. But hey if there’s the will there’s a way... and with a few “always there for me SP friends “ I will succeed.

My 60th birthday was 2 wks after being told I had cancer. A scary time, this year has bought anout a lit of changes. One very important one is I have learned how strong I can be. If I can fight cancer, I can certainly fight a cookie or muffin!

So thanks to old friends, welcome new!
Loving myself, my life and my dreams.

    Hi. Thanks for adding me. I did the same. I see what you mean about similarities in our goals. Mostly on here I blog occasionally and keep a community journal and today I joined the Weight Watchers Team which I started online on Tuesday. emoticon emoticon

    No one can really answer those questions but you. I could answer where I am concerned but not for you. LOL

    Alright - I get it. I just saw an article in the paper about heated driveways!!! At last, scientists are figuring out something useful. If all the roads were heated - everybody would love snow.

    Hi there, thanks for stopping by! Yes I'm still here but not as often as I would like to be. Unlike you, I am on FB a lot because I am in fitness and other groups and doing challenges. I have met up with a lot of people from SP. I like FB because it is more interactive than SP, but I love being here too. I found, and still find, so much support here, but a lot of my SP are no longer here, some as I mentioned are on FB but some have just left SP altogether.

    Anyway, I am going to try to visit SP at least once or twice a week. I'm happy to hear that you are doing well and taking steps to improve your health. It's been a struggle for me over the past few years. My dog of 15 years, Jazzi, died at the end of 2014 and I gained all the weight I had lost and then some. I am in a better place now but what helped me lose weight in the past nutritionally, does not seem to be working now... It's been tough but I'm not giving up. Like you, as a cancer survivor, I am trying to improve my health so that I can hopefully stave off a recurrence.

    ... here's to us reaching our goals!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
