Hi folks, just joined SparkPeople last week, and this team today.

I was diagnosed stage 1 nearly a year ago, had a lumpectomy and sentinel node biopsy, chemo, and radiation and now am on Tamoxifen. I'm feeling great, actually, better than before, because I've made some lifestyle changes - quit smoking, started exercising, and now really taking a look at my diet and weight. I'm determined to use the experience of the past year to keep my eyes on the prize of a healthier life.

I read recently (and had confirmed by my doctor) that my particular type of cancer (HR+) combined with high BMI has a higher risk of recurrence. So I'm super-motivated to lose that 45-50 pounds that have been dogging me for the last 10 years.

My other big challenge is to give my career a boost - I have a home based business as a virtual assistant/online business manager. I work over the internet for clients who need help with online marketing, project management, and e-commerce. During treatment I stopped marketing and let my work-load go to minimum, so now it's time to re-build and get serious about bringing in some income - WITHOUT over-eating from stress or spending seven days a week sitting at my desk.

So, that's where I'm at currently - I'm looking forward to meeting you all, and sharing this journey with you!
