Eye still on the prize

I'm an 11 yr breast cancer survivor, who suffered from severe neuropathy due to Taxol (chemo drug) with pain throughout my body for most of this time. My battle with the neuropathy is being won, however. No pain meds since 5/6/10.

For about a year the title to this page was "Gotta do it". I changed it on 1/10/10 to "I AM doing it". On 8/19/10 I've updated and changed it once again to "Eye still on the prize". After being off for 178 days and regaining 15 pounds (yikes!) I've already lost 4 (yeah!). I have been able to be on my feet, walk, and exercise for the first time in years. Although I've lost some weight battles the past year I am now on my way to win the war.
