I am 65 years old and a breast cancer survivor, Had an illiostomy in 2007 when chemo shredded my colon. I was told it was not reversable but I recently found a surgeon who was able to fashion a small colon out of my small intestine. Its different but working good & I am very happy with the results. I have 3 children, 2 adults and 1 taken from us by a drunken driver when she was 18. My wonderful hubby and I have been married for 45 years. I am looking to improve my health and grow old gracefully.
I continue to meet small goals that I have set for myself with the help of Spark People. So far after8 months I am down 25 lbs. and have reached my goal.

    If in our daily life we can smile,
    if we can be peaceful and happy,
    not only we, but everyone will profit from it.
    This is the most basic kind of peace work.
    - Thich Nhat Hanh
    May you enjoy a beautiful, peace-filled weekend!

    It is only when we silent the blaring sounds of our daily existence that we can finally hear the whispers of truth that life reveals to us, as it stands knocking on the doorsteps of our hearts. - K.T. Jong

    It’s been more than a year since you read my blog entry, “Beauty Comes in All Shapes and Sizes, Not Just Size 5”…I hope that the last year has brought you happiness and success in life. But above all, I hope that you have remembered how beautiful you are!
