I started the FFS program back in November 2002, where I met Kevin and the gang. When I first got there I couldn't breath. I had been diagnosed with emphysema. I was depressed. So depressed that I turned to my other addiction (gambling) and spend $thousands trying to make myself feel better and make it all go away.

I successfully quit on December 17, 2002. At my quit buddies suggestion (Terilyn), we chose that day to give our families the gift of our one week quit. What a beautiful day that was!!!

Since that time, the strangest things have happened...

I went to the doctor and was rediagnosed... NOTHING WAS WRONG with me afterall. According to them, I was misdiagnosed.

I started going to the gym and taking care of myself daily. I don't watch my diet as much as I get in daily exercise (for more than just weight control, but for my well-being in general)

For the last two weeks, I've been cycling 20-30 miles on the weekends. I go to the gym nearly every day for at least one hour of cardio.

I love my life. I love you. Thank you all for being my support system. Thank you all for sharing your experience, strength and hope. And a special thank you to my higher power for helping me find you.

Love,
Sandi
