My name is Donna and I am 60 years old. I am about 5’ 5” tall and I started my journey weighing 253 pounds. After a few years of taking care of myself during breast cancer, and quite a few years of taking Care of my husband who had cancer twice than then kidney failure requiring long distance trips every other day for dialysis for 4 years, I decided I needed to do something about my weight. My husband passed 4 ½ years ago and I have been on this journey for almost 2 years now. My diabetes had severely worsened, my thyroid stopped working, I was diagnosed with severe sleep apnea and I was in pain all the time just from carrying the weight (knees, back, hips etc.) I have lost a lot of weight but have backslidden during last years holidays, and then corona shut-ins. I am re-committing myself as best I can during some turbulent times in my personal and professional life. So here I am to share that the struggle is real and the journey can be long. Every day is not a success but every failure is not a reason to stop either. Thanks to you all for being a huge part of my journey. The best is yet to come!!!!
