This has been quite the week. On Friday April 28th I walked across the stage as I earned my BBA (business degree) from Faulkner University which has been 35 years in the making. As some of you know in 1985 I was diagnosed with a form of thyroid cancer. At the time I was working towards a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Florida and walked away 6 hours short of my degree. I have regretted this decision ever since and now after spending the last year earning 60 hours to complete my degree I am very proud to have achieved this accomplishment!
The other goal was one I set in January following surgery. I wanted to reach 200 lbs by graduation. Last Friday I weighed in 200.2 and this morning after a week long stall I weighed in 199.6! It has been quite a week and I am so very grateful for the love and support of family and friends who celebrated with me near and far.
My future is so very bright and I can’t wait for each and every moment to come!
