1/04/21 As you can see it has been a long time since I was on this site. So many things have happen in the passing years. The biggest thing is I was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in 2015. Dec.1st of 2020 marked my five year anniversary so I am now considered in the 9% survival group. I know I've been blessed with these added years and have much to be thankful for and have so much in life to continue to live for. Grandchildren who are my heart and the best family you could ever ask for are at the top of my list. Surgery, Chemo and radiation took its toll on me and I lost quite a bit of weight which has stayed off for sometime, but in this last year my body must have recovered more and now is starting to take on weight again. I'm now up 25 pounds and say that is enough. so hear I go again to try again to take control of my life and live as well as I can and for as long.
THIRD TIME'S A CHARM....so starting over more determined than ever. 8/13/12 " regained 36 # So it is back to what I know works....Without challenges, there would be no change".

With raising two sets of twins and living in the country there was never a dull moment in our house. You would have thought that with all the chores, errands and chasing kids that would have been enough to keep the weight off. No such luck however and each year along with age came a few more pounds. The last of our children has left home, and here I am at 52 wallowing in all this personal time that I had coveted for so long and thinking it�s not all that its cracked up to be. Finding Sparks has been my spark and I�m looking forward to making over a new me with as much energy as I did raising our family. It really is time for T! 1/18/10 Lost 44# and then faded out...
.....That was my first start last year which was going so well until I let family issues take control and gave up on myself. I'm back now, another year older, wiser and pulling myself together and putting me first again. YEAR TWO is going to be even better and I will reach my goal for nothing or nobody is going to stop me this time!!!. I Can, I Do, I Will!!!! 1/07/11 relost 15 # that I gained back and then 29 # more and then faded out again

    emoticon Tina, so glad to see you posting again, I've had a great summer too.. maybe not as exciting as yours [yours sounded REALLY good]but I've lost enough weight to leave the house now without shame and that's saying a lot for me. emoticon

    I'm up a little this past week, but I'm not throwing the towel in, that's something new I've learned this time around.. never, never give up! emoticon

    Hope to see more of you.. emoticon

    Also, glad you were able to save your pictures on your computer, that would be heart breaking to lose all your photo's.. I can relate, we had to buy an adaptor cord for our external hard-drive or we too would have lost 8 years worth of pictures. emoticon Guess that's the down side of going digital.
