Came back in July '14 after 3 1/2 years

I'm 64 yrs old and a 15 yr breast cancer survivor. I suffer from neuropathy due to Taxol (chemo drug) with pain throughout my body most of this time. Surgery on both knees 24 years ago + bad hip began to limit my exercise ability 10 years ago + weight gain slowed me down even more. Now need to loose the wt and increase my mobility, flexibility, and endurance while adding some muscle.

Thank you for the support and advice! I have noted some questions for the doc, I also sent him an email detailing my journey so he may better prepare as well. Have a great weekend!

Thanks for the blog comment. I try to not make any food items "off limits", it's my experience that doing so only leads to breaking down and over indulging. Like being a kid and being told that you can't cross the street, all you want to do after that is cross the darn street!!

Congrats to you for kicking cancer's a$$! I've had a few family members and a close friend go through cancer treatment and it's always good to score a victory against the big "C".
