Time for another challenge

At 48 years old, I told myself I was too old to lose weight and I just better learn to live with it. Was I ever wrong. Our family started our own Biggest Loser Challenge and I lost 50 lbs. in 7 months.

Along the way I found out I had rectal cancer. I tried not to let that stop my goals and just kept pushing along. I made the choice to fight my cancer using natural treatments instead of using the chemo poison, burning radiation, and mutilating surgery my Doctors recommended. I ...
At 48 years old, I told myself I was too old to lose weight and I just better learn to live with it. Was I ever wrong. Our family started our own Biggest Loser Challenge and I lost 50 lbs. in 7 months.

Along the way I found out I had rectal cancer. I tried not to let that stop my goals and just kept pushing along. I made the choice to fight my cancer using natural treatments instead of using the chemo poison, burning radiation, and mutilating surgery my Doctors recommended. I changed my diet to a Vegan diet and lost another 20 lbs.

I'm still battling the cancer, but I feel that things are finally starting to turn around. I've had a lot of pain because of the cancer, both physically and mentally. My pain has finally started to improve and has given me some hope.

I'm now feeling like I can exercise and take another challenge to lose another 15 to 20 pounds to hit my goal weight. I'm going to start slowly and build back up to where I was.

It's been nearly a year since I started trying to lose the weight I needed to lose. I've managed to keep it all off in that time losing nearly 75 lbs. Now it's time to move on to the next challenge.

Hey Stranger!! I've missed your messages. I've been so busy the past week with end of year things for the kids. I think I only made it to the gym once this week.

I've missed you and just wanted to check in and make sure how you are.

I've got some work to do in the yard this weekend, so I know I'll get my workouts made up for then.

Are you still walking? That's such a nice relaxing way to workout. If you're not you should. Always does wonders for me.

Take care, and please let me know how you're doing.
