Kristi,

1st I want to say thank you for sharing your story. Congrats on quiting smoking I also quit August 2008, one of the best things I was able to do for myself. Also congrats on the weight loss.

My mother passed away last June due to a brain anyerism that had burst, which was caused by poor health and smoking approx. 3 packs per day. She went into the hospital May 20th I believe it was a couple weeks after I had originally joined Sparkpeople. I stopped and then this past January 7th {my birthday} I knew I had to start living my life, being healthier, and be the one who makes the decisions regarding life in general.

I love the way I feel, {my boobs are getting smaller...not so happy about that, but I am good with it}I feel as though I have a new zest for life not only from the weight loss but because of how I have decided to live my life for the first time ever.

To say the least I think we have many similarities in our stories and both have wonderful reasons to be "DONE" sisters.

I wish you all the luck in the world and an amazing journey...be blessed by you and everything will come right into place.

Back in July 2008 I was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer. I was then 34 and scared to death. I had to find myself an oncologist, which I did. However he told me something that basically excuse my mouth, pissed me right off. He told me that because of my weight he would not be able to do a hysterectomy and recommended that I have radiation, which I did. However, hearing those words were heartbreaking to me. I wanted them just to do the surgery and get the cancer out of me. I was so scared at the fact that the cancer was per say gonna stay in my body. All was well and I was getting better and I had had my first normal pap test. 2 Months later my father went into the hospital with what they thought was a COPD flareup.(He smoked for 30 years, but had quit almost 17 yrs ago) Well after a week in the hospital he was not getting any better, finally he had a catscan and they found that a blood clot had went to his lungs. My dad was almost dead and his breathing was horrible, they put him in intensive care for a couple of days he was doing so bad. Right before this time, probably about 3 weeks before I had asked my doctor to prescribe Chantix for me because I wanted to quit smoking....I was still smoking 2 a day when he went into the hospital, but when my dad ended up in intensive care I handed my smokes over to my husband on May 6, 2009 and told him to keep them in case something horrible was to happen to my dad and only then give them back to me then. I have been smoke free since then. Again, all is well except I am going through menopause now and I am having a lot of problems with my hormones. I have been trying to get the right prescription for me with no success. I am crying all the time, having major mood swings and I hate myself. My primary care physician was not really helping through my rough times, I had also been asking her to help me somehow with my weight problems (for 12 years) with no help. Finally after having a breakdown at home I had made up my mind that I needed help in more ways than just hormonal. I knew that I was gonna start my "new way of life" the first Monday of the New Year which was January 4, 2010. A couple days later I finally decided it was time to go see my new primary care physician. I really liked him. I asked him if there was anything he could do for me regarding my weight. We talked for a few minutes and he decided to prescribe me an appetite suppressant. I can't really say if it worked for me because I had already cut down my portion sizes before I started taking the pill and I was always somewhat hungry and never felt full. I have the same feeling in taking the pills so I don't think they are really helping, but I have managed to lose 48 pounds since January 4, 2010 and I am loving how I feel. Exercise along with Spark have made it much easier for me in managing my success. I still have my days where I really need a lot of motivation, but I am so determined to be "healthy". Not necessarily skinny, but I really want to know that if my cancer was to come back, that it would be possible to take it out this time, plus I really want to be able to knock my husbands socks off with the new me. Well this is part of my story. Thanks for listening.

Kristi
