A New Year!

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

2012 has been quite a year. I reached my ultimate goal weight. I am also now a Breast Cancer Survivor. I've completed 3 5k's and had reconstruction surgery along with a tummy tuck and hernia repair and abdominal wall rebuild. Each time I hit that brick wall, I came back stronger. I've had so much support and love along the way. I wouldn't have been able to do it without everyone's support both here and at home.

Now it's a New Year and it's time to move forward. This time I won't be looking at losing weight. I don't remember the last time I didn't have to lose weight after the first of the year. It was probably back in my early 20's though. I'm excited to be setting new goals for 2013. My main goals are running a 10k and a HM! I'm also going to do some serious biking. Along with making sure I continue to eat right and take care of the body that I worked so hard to get.

End of January

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Despite medical issues, I think this has been one of the best January's I've ever had. I reached my goal weight, the weather has been fantastic. I was able to walk the lakes. I've continued to watch what I eat and have started running on the treadmill. Now it's time to move to February and make it one of the best February's yet!

Goal Met!

Sunday, January 29, 2012

Ok, so today I got on the scale like I do every morning and I had to get off and get on again! 180 lbs! So why am I not jumping for joy? Last week I went down to 185 then climbed back up to 186 and I sat there. I couldn't lose an ounce. Then this past Tues. I was scheduled for a surgical procedure. Got on the scale, and I was down a lb. Ok fine. I hadn't had much to eat the day before because of nerves and then I had to stop eating at a certain time. Well, I've been only able to do walking since Tues. which I do for an hour on the treadmill. I did get out and walk one day outside also. I watch what I eat because of the lack of exercise. So am I wrong feeling guilty? I feel like I'm cheating on my weightloss. I do see the Dr. this week for a follow up and will be asking him if it's normal to drop 5 plus lbs after having surgery. I'm hoping this is for real and I'm on my way to my next goal which I've already changed on my page. Only 30 lbs this time and I'm giving myself plenty of time to lose it. So I guess I'll have to see what happens.

Great news from the Dr.

Thursday, September 02, 2010

Today I had my Heart Cath. done. I also had some blood work done to check my cholestral and glucose. First the Cardiologist came in and told me he had great news. My cholestral was normal. It still could go lower, but it's still in the normal range. My glucose was also normal. Plus my weight was down another 8 lbs. Not sure if that was because of the different scales, but I'm going with their number. Then he did my Heart Cath. and my arteries are perfect. There is no calcium build up or anthing. I do not have any heart problems. Thanks Spark because if it wasn't for me using this site, I probably wouldn't be where I am today.

It's great to get that clean bill of health. Coincidentally I had my BP, cholesterol and Blood Cholesterol done yesterday and was pleased to get that clean bill of health as well.

May we both stay healthy and live long!!
