I have always tried to turn problems into possibilities, make lemonade from lemons so to speak. In my last blog I cleansed myself by sharing my burden with others, yes that horrible night time eating. I have to work harder than ever to give it up, last 2 nights were fine. I also need to exercise so I am proud to report that I got on the bike the last 2 days, 40 min. each time. So I have 80 fitness minutes under my belt this week, I hope to keep this routine going 5 days a week. When I make it to 3 weeks it will be a true habit. I have faith in myself and as one of my favorite character's from the movie "Cars" says Towmater (sp?) I'll getterrrrrrrr done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Inga

This picture represents an eating episode from earlier this year, March 2010. I am sad to say this pattern is continui9ng, has been off and on for about 6 years now, since I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Even years before that I have comforted myself with food. I have been depressed lately, my health always under scrutiny with ongoing medical tests due to chronic pain issues from my 3 bouts with cancer. I really need some encouragement, support to help me this, it seems to be getting out of hand again. I don't like eating myself to sleep because life is painful and hard to deal with, that does not make me any stronger and life any easier to deal with. Right now, baby steps, God give me the strength to conquer this and give me friends, like angels to light my way.

During October, the NFL is showing it's PINK, to raise awareness about breast cancer and how important early detection is. As a survivor myself, I am proud to see this disease recognized by the sport of football, and it's reminder to all of us that breast cancer can be beat. I'm sure there are many football wives who have faced bc, My favorite football player, Brett Favre, is the husband of a breast cancer survivor, Deanna. Her book is a great read for anyone who has the disease or supports someone with it. I'll be checking the pink out for the rest of the month on the football fields, it reminds me of how I fought this disease and won.

A wonderful lady I met here on Spark People has lost her fight with breast cancer. Her name was Donna, screen name MRSFIXIT. She was a courageous warrior in the fight against this disease that can take over your whole body, it raged inside her, spreading to her liver. But despite the cruel spread of cancer, the light of hope never dimmed in her mind. Her spirit was happy, alive, hopeful she fought as tough as she could and never gave up. Her body became tired and as she left her husband and family physically, her spirit and joy will remain alive in them. She now is safely in the arms of Jesus, her love for Him showed even in her last days she read the Bible, it meant so much to her. When we see a RAINBOW, let us think of DONNA, shining her colors of light and love from heaven above When we see a BUTTERFLY, let us think of DONNA, flying freely with peace and joy When we have a chance to SMILE at someone, even if our day is rotten, let us think of DONNA, and the smiles she shared in her LIFETIME. I will never forget you DONNA, your courage touched my heart You are an ANGEL to me. I pray for your family now, God be with them. You made a beautiful difference in our world I thank God for letting our paths cross in life, I will always remember you, dear Donna, our MRSFIXIT.
