Welcome to Spark! There are a lot of tools and resources available here to help us on our journey; my favorites are the fitness and nutrition trackers because the keep me on track and accountable every day. But the best part of Spark is the community, the people here are amazing!

It's great you are wanting to focus on your health, what a difficult year you've had, but sounds like your cancer was caught early and treatment is going well...as well as chemo can. Hang in there, 4 more treatments and then the body can begin to rebuild and your journey to good health and fitness can really begin. Your positive attitude will continue to help you reach all your goals.

Keep your goals in focus, put in the work and you will succeed!

Hi! My name is Janet. I am married and together we have 7 children ages: 22, 20, 18, 17, 15, 12 & would have been 5 this year. I found out last June that I have colon cancer. I had surgery that went well & now I am in chemo(only 4 more treatments go). I have struggled for years to lose weight and maintain. After all we went through last year, I am determined to lose weight and enjoy living each day. I want to grow old with my husband and watch our kids grow up as well as their kids. I like to work in the yard (come on spring!), read, watch our son play soccer and our daughter run track. I love to cook and enjoy having family get-togethers (I'm the youngest of 10 kids & my husband is oldest of 6) I look forward to "chatting" with you soon and I hope you make your goals in 2013!!
