So, I am extremely overwhelmed and grateful for all of the support I have been getting lately from all of you. Whether it's on Facebook, this blog, in the grocery store, a simple note or text message I have truly been touched beyond words!

I had no idea so many people cared about me. Can I just say thank you? Thank you. From the bottom of my heart, for caring about me and taking a second to read my story and just for your simple words of encouragement.

Now I really can't mess up! I have to prove to everyone I care about that I can do something hard.

To be honest, I'm really scared of letting you all down. I feel like my life has been a repeat of letting people down over and over again. But I'm determined to change that. I know that God would never give me something I couldn't do. I can do this. I can do this.

As the little engine that could did, I need to keep telling myself, "I know I can! I know I can!"

That is my rant for the day.

I had a Diet Coke today. So sue me!


  1. Hang in there Candace. I know you can do this.

  2. You can do hard things and you will be so grateful you did! I always feel better that I pushed through something hard instead of taking the easy road. When I take the easy road I always end up feeling 100 times worse then if I had just endured the hard stuff. So I try to remember that when something hard is in front of me. I tell myself it's actually the easier road. Keep it up!

  3. Don't give up. It will get easier. Just keep exercising a little every day and you will feel so good. We all love you!

  4. Nothing wrong with Diet Coke, a matter of fact, there's a lot of "right" with it!

  5. You can do this. I agree with Kirsten, it will get easier. Keep working hard. You're doing awesome!
