Earlier today I received an email from my health insurance that reads, “Healthy you! Get fitter and slimmer in happy-new-year-2019-written-450w-327721397.jpg2019.” Is it wrong that my first reaction was “f you!”? In any case, happy new year! It’s now 2019, the year that mom and I refer to as “the one where we kick cancer’s ass.”

Life is going smoothly. I’m at 45 pounds lost and have moved down a clothing size, so I am now wearing XL tops so I am moving out of the plus sizes. My therapist asked me how long it has been since I wore this size, and I think it has been at least 10 years. It feels (wait for it…) surreal, but also good. I’m eating more now and getting some energy back. I even planned a short trip to Italy at the end of the month so I can get a break for a bit. I booked two excursions today: 1) a tour of the Vatican Gardens and access to the museum and 2) a day trip to Assisi and Orvieto. I’ll then have 2 days in Rome and be back in time for our Winter Skill Building Retreat for work.

I spent NYE with Ted and his kids. It was a lot of fun! I also met his friends and will be meeting his parents next week. Progress! He still remains one of the kindest people I know.

Mom returned to chemo today and her doctor said she should be done with it by Valentine’s Day, which is a great way to celebrate love!
