This year I turn 50. I’m Vintage. A 1960s baby. I’m half way through life. Pretty powerful thought.
I’ve started a journey to conquer THE issue I’ve had for the last 4 years. My weight. I’ve never had a weight issue. I’ve always been this petite spunky gal with tons of energy, a big smile and a huge Bucket List.
Then LIFE CAME ALONG.
After two surgeries, one to remove 2 massive ovarian cysts and the other about 2 years later to remove my fibroid-covered uterus (otherwise known as a partial hysterectomy), my body just went sideways. Haywire. It just wasn’t MY BODY anymore. I now am on Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) until I finish up the transition into menopause. Let’s be clear, I do not like drugs in my body. I’m anti-drug therapy as much as possible. I’ll write another blog on that topic all together, soon.
At the same time my body is kicking my butt, I suffered one of the most tragic losses in my life, my mother. She died in August 2017 after battling Stage 4 Lung Cancer for one year and ten months. She was my best friend. I was hers. I’m an only child. I’m still grieving. I think we always will grieve for the loss of our mothers. Another kick in the butt as I am an emotional eater.
Let’s add to that…
- Nursed my 15 year old kiddo, Kobe, back to health after a near death/cancer/glacoma surgery and manage his Cushings Disease and high blood pressure daily
- Launched my own business in real estate
- Met the love of my life
- Moved 2 times, which included building a new home
- Injured my neck and upper back in an auto accident and have just completed 4 months of rehabilitation and chiropractic care
Today, I take care of ME. Regain myself as a strong athletic woman who is centered, balanced and read to conquer the best years of her life. I Love Me!
