PROUD MEMBER OF THE BL PURPLE PASSION TEAM!

August 4, 2015: My new beginnings day. I am having Roux-en-Y bypass in the hopes I can have my spine reconstructed. I did not plan to come through this door- but go through it I will. Choose Life.

Every choice counts. I have learned there is no magic. We get up each day and we make the best choices we can for our lives and our bodies. We cherish our family and friends, we embrace each day as it comes to us.

My body has broken- well I broke it. Through neglect- poor choices- poor diet for too long. 2014 was a hard year of discovering more and more things that went wrong- and having to accept that now my choices mean finding a way to live in the body I have left.

I'm still learning- I'm still here.

Hi Di! I'm from Wyoming, as well - sorta. emoticon I had the privilege of living in Jackson for 10 years, through 2010.

I've read your intro, and am wishing you well through your journey.

Be blessed,
~Sharmie

"Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that's strength." Gandhi

Just a reminder of a quote you posted on my page a couple of weeks ago. I trust you are doing better by now and recovering from your surgery.
