Tania's Weight Loss Journey

I'm now 40 years old... It's been a HARD HARD year... Last January I said goodbye to my Mom who lost her battle with stage 4 lung cancer and went home to heaven... shortly after we found out that Lee(My husband) has MS... and I have been in a family feud with one of my brothers over our parents estate... With all that has happened I have neglected my health and strayed from Spark People as I didn't want to FACE my health issues along with everything else... But I know my Mom & Dad are ...
I'm now 40 years old... It's been a HARD HARD year... Last January I said goodbye to my Mom who lost her battle with stage 4 lung cancer and went home to heaven... shortly after we found out that Lee(My husband) has MS... and I have been in a family feud with one of my brothers over our parents estate... With all that has happened I have neglected my health and strayed from Spark People as I didn't want to FACE my health issues along with everything else... But I know my Mom & Dad are together for eternity and at peace, Lee is now on a treatment plan and doing much better and we FINALLY got our parents estate settled(although the relationship with my brother will NEVER be the same sadly)...I think I'm now ready to get back to my life and the road to a healthy life style and feeling better... :D


I'm 39 years old. I suffered a MASSIVE brain stem stroke in '04 and as a result I have gained a LOT of weight... My goal is to get the weight off and be healthy. My husband has recently been diagnosed with MS and can no longer work. Thus I am the only one working now, but have recently been blessed with the opportunity to work from home so I can be with him when he needs me. My mother lost her battle with lung cancer in Jan of this year. It has been a stressful time and I admit that I haven't been taking care of myself as I should. I am taking baby steps to start addressing some of my problems... I am diabetic and I am close to 150 lbs overweight... I have been lurking for some time, just logging in each day (for my spark points), but nothing else... I plan to again become active on this site and start logging ALL my daily activities, food intake, etc... I know this is going to be a LONG & DIFFICULT journey, but as long as I keep trying I'm sure I'll make it!

Hope you are doing great! I am reading The Swing book. Tracy Reifkind is so inspirational and a really sweet person. Tracy said that the hardcover book will no longer be printed, so treasure that book. I did buy another one, and I am following her plan. emoticon away!
