Relay for Life

I have always wanted to go to a Relay for Life event. Last night (Friday April 29th) I was able to go to one with a dear friend and our kids. It was a wonderful time, however I didn't expect it to be as emotional as it was during the lighting of the luminaires. I know on a personal level how cancer can affect someone's life. I am a daughter, granddaughter, niece and cousin of someone who has/had won the battle with cancer but Iam also a niece and cousin of someone who has lost the battle of cancer. Cancer doesn't care how old or young a person is or if they are male or female. It can happen to anyone.
My grandmother has lost three out of her four brothers to cancer and now her only living brother has cancer.
I'm like many out there who would love for a cure to be found. Cancer has taken too many of my love ones away from me. After last night I think I will participate in the walk next year.

Starting Over

Well I have hit a bump in the weight loss. I am at a stable weight which is not where I want to be. I have now come to the conclusion that I need to refocus on what my goal is. Yes I've done great. I started this program weighing in at 224.5 lbs and now I'm at 171.2 lbs. So yes I have lost 50.3 lbs but I want and need to lose about 20 more lbs. I know deep in my heart that I can do this but I need to focus again.


Why am I doing this weight loss program? I'm doing it for several reasons. first of all I'm doing it for my health. I need to think about my health because of my family. My husband has lost over 100 lbs and I am so proud of him and I have never seen him this small. I just hope I can continue to do as well as he has.

Secondly I'm doing this for my family. I want to be able to enjoy doing things with them. I want to be in shape again and not have to worry about not being able to play and run with the kids.
I hope I can continue to stay on track. I've lost so much that what I still have to lose is a small amount compare to what I've lost so far.

Trying this again

I had planned on blogging more then I do but I backed off because, well, I have a family member in my life that only got a facebook page to monitor what I post. So with that said I wanted to wait and see if she knew about this blog site and it seem like she doesn't. I am not the writer like my wonderful sister in law is but I started this as a way to express my feelings and to let those who know me that do follow keep up with my family. So here is to a second time go around.
