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.
