Wow, itís been a long time since Iíve been on spark people but I am ready to get back on track and lose this weight once and for all. A lot of things have happened that have led to me letting myself down. As you recall in my last blog my dad passed away last May. I have been having a really hard time with his passing and feel that I have no one to talk to. In January I had major back surgery to finally fix my back pain and I am still recovery but moving a lot better. I still have a few things I struggle with but I know one day I will get there. I have talked about reasons why I canít do things and I realized this past Sunday that those were all just excuses. I did a 10 mile Hungry Crop Walk and made it even though I havenít walked that much in one time. I knew after that walk that I could do this and I can do anything I set my mind to. I had to take a few sit down breaks because of my back hurting but I still made it and boy were my legs sore the next few days. But I still did it! I have already been on a walk and plan to go on another here in a few minutes before therapy. I will be graduating from Parkland College with my associates next month and I have been asked to speak at the Honors Convocation. I was also accepted into the University Of Illinois School Of Social Work with a scholarship that covers everything but books for the next 4 years. Iím super excited! With that being said I will post more later.
