My Story

My name is Christine.  I am a 38 year old mother and wife and I have breast cancer.  The dreaded "C" word.  I was diagnosed after months of doctor appointments and stress, 2 days before Christmas.  Merry Christmas huh! I have had a bilateral mastectomy and 8 rounds of chemo.  But funny enough thru all this my biggest struggle is my eating and weight.  I have struggled all my life with being "big boned" and "tall".  I am an aerobics instructor and a ER nurse.  Even though I have lost over a 100 lbs, every day is still a battle.  I always feel like I am "comin from behind" everyone else.  I seem to always be on a diet and exercising .  I seem to have people around me who succeed instantly while I am always on this roller coaster.
Having Cancer and going thru what I have has now made me look at this in a different way!  I have decided to regain control and try something new.  This blog is step one, this is a place for me to share my day to day struggles with others and give and get support.  I also have begun to run, and signed up to run a 1/2 Marathon in 288 days.  I plan on posting health and fitness information and my day to day battle not only with my weight and fitness but my survival from Cancer.... So stay tuned and look for me catchin up and movin to the front of the pack.
