Lost Time

Thursday, January 10, 2013

I only have one health goal (resolution) for this year and that would be that I stop dwelling on the past year(s) that have passed without much progress. I tend to dwell on those times where I fell away from my journey and rather learn from them, I tend to live there. This year needs to be different and it will be. I did not make a list of things to change in 2013. I resolve to be and live in the present with myself. I do not want to lose anymore time wondering, what if I had done this or done that on my weight loss journey. It sucks away energy I could be using for healthier things. It may be the most difficult resolution I have ever made.

Two pound celebration

Sunday, July 01, 2012

So I lost 27 pounds last year and my last posted weight loss was in August of 2011. Since then, I have gained and lost 8 pounds over and over. Finally, I have busted that plateau and have lost an additional 2 pounds since getting myself back here to log in and track calories. My next step? Get serious about some fitness. I have already started with the 15 minute Qi Gong video and while it is not a big calorie burner, it makes me feel better and more mindful of my body and I find myself browsing through the other videos looking for more activity. I'm thinking that Bollywood routine looks promising!

Unwanted surprise

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

Yesterday, my doctor pulled up a report from a CT scan that was done of my pancreas last month. That scan found a spot on my lung. A very small spot, but a spot nonetheless. I am reserving judgement until I speak with the gastrointestinal specialist, that ordered the test, on Friday to see what happens next. My doc says that because it is only 5mm, there is little chance of malignancy, and my online searches verify this. My hope and prayer is that this spot turns out to be absolutely nothing.

    Thank you WaysofGrace and Vicki2705! So far, things are working out. It's small, so they are just going to keep a watchful eye on it to see if it changes in any way. Many times they are benign. We're just waiting to find out when we need to do the follow up CT scan. My prayer is that it will of course, disappear! Thank you for the encouragement. It means alot.

I need to be more mindful of what I'm thankful for. Things in my life are not ideal but there are many things for which I can still feel gratitude. My goal is to begin living my life with more thankfulness. Today I am grateful for the new job my husband started in August after years of searching...and it seems to be a really great fit for him.
