Life is good.
It is a good feeling to wake and be alive. My roads of my journey are littered with little bumps, large mountains, small pot holes and huge craters. It makes the journey interesting, especially when I finally get over the huge crater and large mountains that I see I made through the problems and conquered it.

Feeling good finally. Over came the cancer now have to learn to live with heart. Have to learn to not be impatient..slow down when tired, but not totally give in to it. That is hard to do, but the body will make you slow even if you don't want to. :)

Not as tired..yeah. I think finally on mend. Making a better effort to read labels for sugar and sodium contents. Had a wonderful day with my son on Mothers day. Missed my older son who is in New York.

April 28, 2010 Doctor Check Up

April 23, 2010 Forgetting to Write Food.

I keep forgetting to write down my food . lol Have to do better. I think I'll remeasure everything for a short while. With the allergies it has been hard. A little every day or as they say baby steps..
April 16, 2010 Need Back on Track.

I haven't been here for a while. Monday marks 5 years of going into a long dark tunnel. My first surgery of which I thought I had ovarian cancer stage 4. Thanks to God it wasn't, but I have PMP, Cancer of the Appendix. I am 57 years old now it has been an interesting journey with it's ups and downs, thank God I made it through.
Zaky decided to come back to Greensboro this Jan an transfer to a community college. Closer to home and less money.
My weight has remained the same or close to when I went off. Now I am back..need to write down food for a while to continue on my journey.

July 2009

I am finally feeling better mentally, physically, and spirituality.. Now I am commit to work on my weight and lose those unwanted pounds. I am married to Mike and we have 2 sons. Sam is 24 and is graduated from Northeastern University in Boston Ma now living in NY City. My youngest Zaky is 18 and graduated from high school. He will be attending UTI in Mooresville, NC in August 2009.

I did not think 4 years ago I would live to see that, I am so thankful to God for letting me see them do this. It is great to be alive to see all that is in store for me and my family.

I may have cancer, but cancer doesn't have me!

Live! Laugh! Love! often & Celebrate Life Every chance you get! and remember Don't give Up the Fight!

One step at a time. 5 pounds in a month would be fine.Slow down do not be in a rush as when I was younger. I learned that it takes time for the weight to come off slowly to stay off.

    It looks to me like you haven't been here in a long time. (Maybe I'm wrong.) Restarting January 1, 2015 would be a great day for you. Our health is what matters most. Hope to see you then. emoticon

    With which one will not part.
