Never Giving Up!

I am from Nebraska but I work in Africa as a nurse at a Christian hospital. I teach in the Nursing School. I will soon also start to run the the Hospital FM Radio station!

I have been on SparkPeople since January 7, 2008, thus my Spark name Carolyn 0107. I am 63 years old.

One exciting thing. I am an Ovarian Cancer survivor since June 15, 2004! That means on June 15, 2014 I will be a 10 year Cancer Survivor! Praise the Lord!

Below find some personal comments:

March 13, 2014 .. I am at my highest weight ever. I plan to move my weigh in days back to Thursdays and I also plan to celebrate small victories and not be controlled by the scale!

August 29, 2013...Nursing School where I teach started with a Spiritual Retreat. Classes begin Sept. 2nd. The weather will be getting hotter soon so it will be more difficult exercising in the African heat.

July 7, 2013... trying to walk outside most days, keeping up my exercising.

May 15, 2013... After four months without being able to post SparkPeople blogs and IT neighbor helped me figure out why and today I was able to post a new blog entry. WooHoo!
With the cooler season beginning here on the equator, I want to do more walking for exercise. It's not easy though with bad knees, the one that broke last year and the other that has bad arthritis. But, I plan on moving just the same.

January 7, 2013... my 5 year SparkVersary! This past year has been a difficult one because of breaking my left knee, falling and then breaking my left wrist (March 5th). I was in a wheelchair for 3 1/2 months then back on my feet after having had six surgeries. Although I did gain weight during the year, it could have been worse. BUT my weight loss journey restarted on Dec. 11, 2012. I have already lost 6 pounds in less than a month.

June 25, 2011- 1st 5K WALK, 60 minutes.
July 2, 2011 2nd 5K WALK, 55m25s. Shaved 4m35s off my time of last week! WooHoo!
March 5, 2012... I dislocated my left knee and broke my tibia (leg) then fell and dislocated and broke my left wrist. An artery in my knee was torn so a surgeon took a vein and made me a new artery out of the vein! On June 19, 2012 I had a total knee replacement.

Dec 11, 2012 I fly back to Africa. Praise the Lord!

I will NOT give UP!
