||my daughter labeled me "complex". I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and a cancer survivor. Guess I'm pretty hard to knock down..because I just keep getting back up. I am an open minded fighter.

Keep it Healthy
|Wild Fact About Me
||I use to weigh over 250 pounds. I lost OVER 100 pounds without a gastric bypass, on my own.
||keep searching, eventually you will find the path to yourself, healing and maybe even contentment. Be the best you can be for yourself and don't worry about what others think you "should" do..for you should never "should" yourself.
|What Gives Me Hope
||ongoing cancer research. Also, the youth of our Nation. I can see great possibilities within my grandchildren.
|If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
||If I was Mayor, I would first pass a budget that allowed for the police to pay their employees for putting their lives on the line, also the civilians that work in the background deserve the best. They also took an oath like that of the officers. Now the city is cutting wages and personel because of the resession. Anyone that is not union could be booted without notice and those that have been with the city for a number of years, but are not represented are getting a pay cut.
I would also make sure that the schools were a priority. Our schools are really missing out, now that the arts have been taken away..no music..no art. What are these kids doing with the left side of their brain?
|What/who changed my life and why
||Watching a home video of myself singing at my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. I knew I had to do something about myself. It was the first time that I realized that I really was obese.

people who rape,
Any one that would hurt an animal,
Any one that would hurt a child
