My Birthday Month Celebration

I decided that this year I was going to celebrate not only my birth-day, but my entire birthday-month. I needed to celebrate more than one day the new ME.

For so many years I experienced the birthday blues.  I used to look forward to my special day and when it came, I didn't feel the happiness.  Why? Perhaps because I wasn't happy with myself, even though I thought I was.  I have a great husband, I survived cancer, I have a great life and great people in it.  What  else can I want?

I'm Home - I've Shrinked to 125 Pounds

I am HOME!!!
It has been an exhausting, long and difficult journey but I'm HOME.  I have officially lost 113 pounds and 55 inches of my body. I have reached my ultimate goal - "HEALTH".

Today is my birthday and I have given myself the best present ever.  I'm about to say something that I never phantom I would ever say: "I weigh a healthy 125 pounds, muscles and all".  

It is by unanimous decision from Dr. Wright (my oncologist), Dr, Maselli (my Internist /Diabetes doctor)  Ronni (#myfoodpolice), #KillerKetsy (my trainer) Freddie (my husband), my entire supportive family and ME that I am exactly where I have to be.

For those of you that were starting to get worried about my weight loss, fear no more, I have reached my goal, I have reached my limits.  Please know that throughout this journey I have been monitored and guided by both of my doctors as well as other qualified people.  I am stronger, healthier and happier than I have ever been.
