Was lost, Now found

Thursday, June 21, 2012

It has been over a month since I have left a blog. I have found out that I will have to have a hysterectomy done. But I have to have 2 shots first that will put me into a false menopause to make sure that's where my pain is coming from. Had some blood work done found out the results yesterday. seems i'm positive for a factor 5; which has to do with , veins thrombosis. deep vein blood. I will have problems with blood clots during my life if I lay around too much and they are worried about it with surgery coming up. it also effects to thin blood as well, kinda complicated if you ask me. seems the gene runs on my dad's side of the family. it's what my father, his father and some of his brothers died from. I figured I would have the same problems as my father, but now I know for sure and can take steps in prevention. I know I am facing surgery in about 3 months time, that's why all the shots will be done and they should figure out everything they need to know. but I want to lose as much weight as possible before hand, I know how hard it is to recover from this kind of surgery, I already had 3 c-sections in my early 20's. and I'm not looking forward to the recovery time nor the pain. But I can no longer put up with the pain from a monthly cycle either. they say my uterus is the same size as a woman in her 2nd trimester. that explains lot of the abdominal sensations I have been having. they call it Endometriosis.

have been doing really great on walking and biking, was surprised to see they also have a calorie burning for pushing a lawn mower, so that was cool. I had gained back the original 4lbs I lost., but since I have started over again I am back down those 4 lbs. I just need to keep focused on what I need to do for my own health and what lay's ahead for the next 3 or 4 months.


A new Day

Friday, May 18, 2012

Today is thursday, I am so sore but very happy with my day. I did my walk/ bike ride this morning 5.10 miles, my tush is sore, my legs burn and my low back wanted to give out after I was done. but I feel great mentally. I know tomorrow I will not be able to do the walk/bike so I will go back to just my walk and hit the 2.86 mile route. Also do some other type of exercise while I am home. or maybe do a dance; course I could save that for Saturday, I heard that I might have the house to myself. whooooo, that alone is worth celebrating for. lol but for now I need to do some light weight lifting and stretch bands before bed. Have a Happy Tomorrow everyone.

Exciting day of a new week

Sunday, May 13, 2012

I did my weigh in this morning and the scale surprised me by showing a 4lbs loss. I couldn't wait to log in to my sparks page to record the loss, just so I could see my little man move on my ticker. lol emoticon Hey for me, and that's just one more motivation for me to keep it going for this week and challenge my self to work harder to drop a bigger number this week, check back next sunday to see if I made it.
Have a wonderful day

Finally it's beautiful weather out here in washington state. I got off my tush this morning after breakfast of egg whites and yogurt. and went for a 2.46 mile walk., was awesome. the only downer was my boots I wear put a blister on my foot (2nd time) so I went out this afternoon and bought some new shoes. I am hoping this takes care of the problem and my feet like the shoes. lol Tomorrow I want to go for a combination of a bike ride and walk, my walmart route and that's a little over 10 miles. But it will depend on how my foot is doing and providing my husband does not have anything else planned. might be working on the green house this weekend. Anyway you all have a great day and stay strong.

I haven't been doing any exercises the last few days, might even be a week now, I don't remember the last time, I would have to look. I have been in bed for about 4 days, weak and exhausted. trying to get my energy back. I have problems with Pms. thinking of having it all taken out, tired of the terrible pain I go thru each month. I don't function well during those times. I'm on pain meds for it. and they make me sleep, only to wake up to pain and take more pills and start all over again, it's exhausting. A person can't lose weight this way, I don't have the energy to work out during this time,so what I do get ahead of the other times of the month this sets me back. It lasts from start to finish about 2 weeks out of the month some times longer. I feel like I am beating my head against a brick wall and the wall is winning. But I do not give up I just want to wine about it I guess. lol Take care everyone and have a wonderful day.

    Thank you TRISSIDAAE. The Dr, and I have talked about other options but I have other issues where I can't take things like that, so that leaves me out. (smiles) good idea though.

    Have you talked to a dr about maybe something like depo provera or seasonique to have none or less of a period? It could help. Sorry you have been in so much pain, it will get better, you just have to stay positive
