Back on Track!
The year after chemo infusions ended (June 16, 2015), I let go and celebrated about 37 pounds worth! I really enjoyed myself, and the thought of getting back on track was something I avoided! When I went to my oncologist for the one year visit (... Read more

Only ONE more chemo to go!!
Yesterday I had my next-to-last chemo infusion. June 16 will complete my year of infusions, though I will have to take a daily pill for four and a half more years. Since Feb. I have gained 12 pounds, and I have gotten back on track with my eatin... Read more
Life Goes On - Chemo and all!!
Well, I completed the 12 weekly infusions of Taxol and Herceptin on Sept. 10. Now I go every three weeks for Herceptin. That will continue for nine months. At some point in the near future (hoping to wait until Dec.), I will have to try a pill w... Read more
Life After Double Mastectomy and Facing Chemo for a Year
It's been nine days since the surgery. All went well with very little discomfort. Imagine that! I went to the oncologist two days ago and my pathology was wonderful! God has really blessed me!!! My tumor was less than a cm. and there was no lymp... Read more
Breast Cancer will NOT stop me!!
The biopsy revealed invasive ductal carcinoma in my right breast. God has let me know in several ways that He is still in control and with me. I am needle and doctor phobic. When I was asked to come back for more scans and ultrasound, my husband... Read more
Still In Awe of What God Is Doing In Me!!
We are in the Keys for three months. We were here last winter for six weeks. My knees hurt so badly, I did very, very little and had to take pain meds some nights for my knees. If you had told me last year that this year I would be walking at le... Read more
First Big Goal Met Today! Happy, happy, happy!!!
I was 199 today when I weighed on the scales they have at Publix. This is my first huge goal on the way to 120. I only got down to 215 after gastric bypass surgery before I found I could snack continuously to satisfy my cravings. Today, I am so ... Read more
We think we will get home next Friday. My eating has been good, but the walking stopped Sept. 5 with only one day since then. When my aunt from California met us at Yellowstone, my goal was to spend as much time with her as possible. She has ter... Read more
Learning from Experiences!
Yesterday, I hiked 5.8 miles according to my mapmywalk and over 7 miles according to my husband's mapmywalk. We hiked to Avalanche Lake in Glacier National Park. I have had no problems walking around three miles on mostly flat terrain. The hike ... Read more
Trip Going Fine, Clothes Getting Looser
Wahoo! I have no idea how much weight I have lost, but my clothes are getting looser. That excites me way more than what the scales say (if I had access to scales). So far, eating has been no problem at all. I am so very thankful and give the pr... Read more
Walked Today, Splurge Tomorrow
I did not walk an hour, but I did get in 44 minutes and 2.12 miles, which in my book is a whole lot better than the no-walks of the past five days (except for the .65 mile the other night). My eating has been right on track, within all the allow... Read more
Long Travel Days Are Not Good for Getting Water and Exercise Done!
Yep, found that out today. I had not walked for the two days before because of the huge blister I got on my heel from walking in new shoes and not lacing them up tight enough. My husband and I thought we would walk after we ate supper tonight, b... Read more
Going Camping and Won't Weigh for Two Months - YIKES!!
Actually, I am not anxious about this. It is exciting to look forward to seeing about 16 more pounds gone when I return home. Camping makes staying on track for eating and walking easy. The long days of travel will make walking more of a challen... Read more
The Lord Works in Mysterious Ways!!
Tuesday was my weigh-in day. My husband and I had to get up at 6:00 a.m. to go pick up our camper in storage and go get new tires on it and the truck before our next trip. I roll out of bed and go to the digital scales and pull it out with my fo... Read more
