After spending the last several years battling a heart attack, a total hip replacement, uterine cancer, losing my job and having to find a new one, major depression and binge eating I think life is finally beginning to turn around. I think the main thing I have learned through this is summed up in the Galaxy Quest tag line, "Never give up. Never give in." God has been with me through all these ordeals and I have managed to come out a little better than I when I started through each one. I jokingly tell my friends that maybe I'll get it together by the time I'm 65 (I ‘m 60 now). However I'm definitely trying to get my weight and health back into line before then. My goal is to be a healthy weight and physically fit by October 2019 and then to keep it that way!
