Cancer has reared it's ugly head my life in many forms. My dad died from a brain tumor.
My mother lost her voice box to cancer & also had breast cancer.
My MIL passed away due to lung cancer in 2012.
Life is short, enjoy each day for the blessing it is.
I had 2 strokes in 1999 when I was 32 caused by a condition called Central Nervous System Vasculitis. I was already 25 pounds over weight when I got sick and between medication and my balance issues I gained a lot of weight. I was 280 pounds at my highest weight. I have some disabilities from the strokes so my exercise is somewhat limited to mostly walking.
I'm celebrating my 5 year anniversary with Spark People. I've lost 54 pounds thanks to motivating and supportive Spark friends like you! I have some more to lose but am grateful for where I am because of things you've shared during your journey! Thank you so very much for being there!
Hi Cheryl, Glad to find SOMEONE else from Osceola. I'm on the exact opposite side of Kissimmee from you. Over near St. Cloud. As far as breakfast drinks, I like to have my vanilla whey shake blended with berries. Just picked a ton of blackberries and I honestly think that adding the berries is the reason I was able to drop 4 # in 2 weeks.
Your GNC shake plan reminds me of The Simple Diet (book by same name). There is a Spark Team by that name that follows it. There might be some ideas there that you could use. I followed a plan similar to the one that you are doing for a long time and liked it.
Thanks for the suggestion Cheryl! I've been considering getting a blender but I get overwhelmed when reading all of the reviews. I do use frozen fruits and I'm graduating to using spinach and kale haha!!! But I'm a lot like you...I like having liquid for breakfast. It's pretty quick and I don't feel like I'm overeating. I'm really going to take your suggestion into consideration.
