Well it's now 2019 and I'm heavier than I've ever been in my life! I'm turning 50 next month and I'm starting to REALLY feel my age. Actually, I'm feeling my WEIGHT! My age isn't a problem. My weight IS! And it's time I take care of this problem! NOW! 2017 is here! We are excited to start this new year on a healthy and happy note! Rick is still "cancer free" and we are hopeful that he will stay that way! We are so thankful that we get to spend every weekend with our beautiful granddaughter Reighn! She definitely inspires us to keep moving! And a huge part of my motivation is in thanks to her! I want to live a long and happy life where I get to see her go to school, graduate, marry and have little kids of her own! I know I've said it many times before but I truly believe this will be the year that I actually succeed! I'm ready and have accepted that it will be a huge challenge! But it's not something I am doing alone. And it's not something that I can't do! I CAN! And I WILL! And I AM! 2016 Flew By! We have enjoyed our granddaughters immensely! 2015 was a very rough year! Lots of ups and downs. It started off with a sinus infection for me, then a sinus infection for my hubby. Then we found out that hubby's sinus infection led to the discovery of a tumor in his throat. So....after a Power Port, feeding tube, 35 radiation treatments, 7 chemo treatments and him being out of work for 3 1/2 months we are now "back to normal"! Clean scans at last follow up! Yay! During the midst of this we threw together a wedding for my daughter and son-in-law (32 hours from beginning-to-plan to the actual vows! WOW!) But it turned out BEAUTIFUL! Then, we welcomed our beautiful granddaughter! (Wedding on Friday, baby on Monday - whew!) And she has been such a huge blessing through it all! She has really helped us focus on the future - and distract us from the negative! All I can say about 2015 is that we could see and feel the Hands of God in our lives. There are so many things that just can't be explained any other way - and we are so thankful and grateful for all of them! Now, it's time to take a huge sigh of relief! (So glad that's behind us!) 2016 will be the year we finally get healthy (overall) and commit to ourselves.
