    I can only echo what has already been said....you certainly look so amazing now! The side by side picture with the purple hair you look utterly exhausted and then completely beautiful in the picture next to it. Good for you!!! Keep the positivity flowing, you certainly have earned it.

I am so proud of you for moving forward and pushing on! You are undoubtedly improving not only your own life, but others around you because of it. I wish you the best of luck and success :)

    Congratulations on your journey so far! You look like a completely different person.

    Ya'll are making me cry (happy tears)!

    I was utterly exhausted and very sick with the tumor. I went out for drinks with my friends that night, and they pulled me out onto the dance floor (dancing is something I've always LOVED no matter my size). All of that moving around of my abdominal area did not agree with my tumor. It was one of the worst nights. I had to go to the bathroom to vomit and then ended up sitting on the sidelines crying the entire night because I was tired of not knowing what was wrong with me -- and I most definitely knew something was very wrong. Especially when I was unable to do one of my most favorite things in the world -- dancing.

    But I dance all the time now! Every day. It feels like a waste not to. Dancing is the way I celebrate my life.

    How amazing to have endured soooo much and still be able to "keep your head up" ... You are truly a walking miracle. (It may not seem like that but truly why else would you be left to tell the story) ... There is a calling on your life! Too many times, you nearly missed death not to mention death was all around you ... OMG, it must seem a little scary.

    I have a similar story that I will tell one day and it sure seems scary to me, (to try to process it all at one) is almost unbearable. So I only re live it when I tell my story ... (never on a day to day basis) ... Its wayyy to much ! lol ... Nothing physical, I wasn't raped or abused as a child .. but similar to your ... So many ppl close to be were being plucked away.

    NOW, on to the weight loss ... WHAT an amazing story as well. I am totally re-encouraged. Thank you SOOO much for sharing your story WITH ME ... Because I feel like it was "Just for me"!

  • So sorry to hear about your losses. I work with cancer patients and it is heartbreaking. They are the best patients to work with, other than children, because they really fight hard and have such an inspiring desire to live. Congrats on your weight loss. You look Amazing! I am sure your loved ones are so proud of you. Live your life to the fullest!

    Amazing Story! I am glad you were able to sweeten your life as opposed to allowing yourself to get bitter. I have my own trials (including hormonal imbalances) right now, and lost a lot of the work I put into myself previously. I'm slowly starting to come around again, yet as I am sure you can understand, fighting the resulting lower self esteem and lowered self confidence is always a challenge. Your trials, tribulations, success, and success to came at a great time for me to read. Thank you for sharing your short biography and your pictures!
