I am a 48 year old Mother of 3 Sons, and Grandmother of 2 beautiful Grand-Daughters. After beating Kidney Cancer in 2003 I initially lost weight after learning that obesity is a leading cause for kidney cancer. Needless to say not only did I gain what I lost back but I added poundage to it! I need alot support to reach my goals!

God has kept me here for a reason! I survived because he has a plan for me.
All my bad relationships, the bad credit, the repossesions, the death of my loved ones, the back stabbing from my friends, the negative thoughts or the lack of support, I made it cause I am blessed!
I have released and let go of all past hurts, misunderstandings and grudges because I am blessed! I recognize them as the illusions they are, for God is all there is, all else is a lie!
Now give yourself a hug, wipe your tears and walk in victory!!!!!
I love you, but more importantly, GOD LOVES YOU BEST!
And may the Lord keep watch between you and me when we are away from each other.
Genesis 31:49

I have almost reached a goal I never thought I could reach.......I will be a 1 year non-smoker on April 18th, 2009! I had so much support here on Spark, now it's time to focus on the weightloss!
Yes, I want to be a big loser, so I've set new attainable goals of 1 pound a week and so what if it's going to take me almost 2 years to reach my goal.....I will not let it bring me down anymore, goals that are not feasible have kept my attempts in failure mode! No I didn't gain this weight overnight and I won't take it off overnight, but I will take it off.....1 pound at a time!

    Hey Cindy! You already know how strong you are by beating kidney cancer. That must have been tough. But you're a survivor and you can quit smoking, too. :) I'm only one week ahead of you, so we can really help each other out here. I'm also working on losing 80 - 90 pounds this next year. We can help each other with that, too.

    My email address is

    Let me know if you're interested in being support buddies off the message boards.

    Have you experienced any side effects taking the Chantix? Mine haven't been too bad. Nothing I can't tolerate.
