Update (01/02/2018): I am beginning 2018 with a 37 lb weight loss goal for the year. I didn't hit my 62 lbs target for 2017, but I am proud that I reached my pre-diagnosis weight of 229. I had to take a break from working out from October-December, so I gained a few back. I entered cancer surveillance mode in May, and after my second cat scan in December, my oncologist still won't say "remission", but he has reduced the number of cat scans from 4 to 2 per year. I call it success! I am still learning my "new" boundaries, so I am balancing my work outs against my day-to-day activities. I hope everyone else reaches your goals and have all your desires met this year. Be blessed!

Update (6/2017): Lol...if someone would have told me that 2012 would see me unemployed, 2013 saw me start my business full-time, and 2014-2017 battle cancer and win, I would have said they were crazy! Truth is stranger than fiction, but definitely more interesting. Since May 2016, I have lost 26 lbs, but my next milestone is 40 lbs, with my final goal being 63 lbs. Spark People has kept me motivated, and I know this time not only will I lose the weight, but I will keep it off.

Update (7/2015): Wow! Little did I know what the last two years would bring. Regardless, I am back with additional 20 lbs to lose. Let's do this!

I just turned 40 and decided that this year I want to take off the 50 pounds I gained in the last decade. :-) I am a certified workaholic, so my excuse has been it is too difficult to work out and work. This year that excuse is out the window.

Personal Information:
I am a survivor of a rare cancer called leiomyosarcoma that began in my uterus and metastasized to my lungs before my initial diagnosis. 3 rounds, 32 cycles of chemotherapy and 2 rounds of radiation later, I do not take it lightly that I survived when a disease that usually kills 96% of those it affects. I am blessed.
