Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much A true friend reaches for your hand but touches your hea

I've had a challenging three years. After an 85# weight loss her at SP I was feeling great and took a new job I was really excited about. Unfortunately it turned out to be a nightmare. It started a spiral into a very bad depressive episode, something that I have dealt with chronically my whole life. I lost all interest in self care and struggled just to get through the day. My food choices became whatever was fast, easy, and comforting. I put on 40#. Then last year I battled breast cancer, this didn't help my depression. I was warned my type of treatment might result in weight gain and it did, another 20#. Miraculously my depression was finally being controlled and I finished my cancer treatment. I had chemo, double mastectomy and reconstruction surgery. Once I was cleared from surgery I was offered a job I love. I'm a Kennel Manager with a Golden Doodle Breeder and specialize in puppy development. My job is actually training puppies from three days old until 8 weeks when they're ready to go home. The job is extremely physical and was hard at first because chemo had taken such a tole on my legs, knees and feet. But I knew I could push through, and my doctors encourage me to be patient as it usually takes a year from the end of chemo to have your pre-cancer strength and agility back. The hard push was good for me and is helping me gain my strength back a little faster. The last thing I needed to tackle is my nutrition and weight. I'm know mentally and physically ready to do it. I had such great success with SP last time I knew this is where I need to be. I have a nutrition approach that has proven successful for me in the past so I'm off and running with it, but the support and accountability from SP keeps me motivated so I'm so happy to be back, and have some hair:0)
