In November 2012 I almost ended up in the hospital. I had been having "woman issues" since July and was almost admitted into the hospital right from the Dr. office. I have a large fibroid (size of a nine month pregnancy) and as a result have gained about 50 pounds in the last year...part from the fibroid and associated fluids and part because it has drained ,my energy. I will be needing surgery within the next 5 months and HAVE to get healthy. I've started low impact aerobics, walking (if it ever stops snowing here) and a pesco-vegetarian diet.
I'd like to lose at least 15 pounds in the next 5 months, no....I'm GOING to lose 15 pounds in the next 5 months!
Nice to meet all of you.
