So, I had to go this morning for a biopsy (oh the things we girls have to go through)..
Because my doctor was not satisfied with how things went during the biopsy and the results of the ultrasound that followed, I will have to undergo another procedure in a couple of weeks. Meanwhile, the tissue that he was able to obtain will be sent away and I should have the results on Monday.
Thank you to everyone who sent up prayers for me today. I really appreciate it. Sometimes, if I allow myself, I have wondered why all of this is happening to me at once, but then I am reminded that God did not promise us every day would be sunshine and roses here, and that we are not really supposed to get comfortable in this world, afterall, we are just passing through.
As for my eating today, I am on target, however, I have been hungry all day today. I can't help but believe this is just my "stress" eating trigger that I often deal with in times of stress. Sooo... I have for the most part ignored it. I am on target for my points and I am determined to get through this without the aid of my crutch (food).
Again, thank you to everyone who sent up prayers this morning in my behalf. God bless you all.

I have been doing ok with my plan this week. It has had its challenges (still at my daughter's house), but all in all, a good week so far. I really have enjoyed the company though. We have always been close and get along great, so that's a plus.
I have to go this morning for the biopsy I mentioned earlier in the week. I'd be lying to say I wasn't a little apprehensive about it, but I know God will be with me. Please hold me in your prayers....
If the biopsy goes well and the aftereffects are not that great, I will be going home either later today, or tomorrow. I can remember a time when I would have been looking forward to that more than anything.... "to be home again." But, since this divorce started, its hard to look at the house as my "home." Sometimes It feels more like a prison. There are just so many memories. I am looking forward to making new memories one day soon in my new "home," wherever that may be.

I know I am a little slow about setting goals. I often am afraid to set goals. While others work away at them, I am always the apprehensive one. If I aim high, I feel like I am setting myself up for failure. If I aim low, it feels like I am taking the lazy way out. I need to find a happy medium lol. Don't get me wrong, I have some goals I have set as far as my weight loss is concerned, however, what I tend to do is keep them private.
I am curious to know, is there a right or a wrong way to set goals? What has worked for you? Should they be public? Any suggestions?

I had a good week this week as far as motivation and inspiration go. I did really good in some areas, and need improvement in others. I tend to do just fine until life interrupts. Then it becomes a juggling match of tracking, trying to get in all of my healthy guidelines, meet my daily points, and drink all of my water. Something usually suffers. This week's struggle was getting all of my veggies and fruits in. But, here it is Sunday again, and tomorrow I face the scales again. I am anxious but excited again to see how I have done.
I also had to go to my doctor this week for some problems I have been having. The result of that appointment is a biopsy to be performed on this coming Thursday. I can't lie, I am a little nervous about it. But, I am trying to trust in God more and let Him have His will, and not mine, in my life. With that being said, I won't go on about it.
I have a busy week coming. Numerous appointments, etc. I am determined, however, to stick to my plan. No excuses! I am feeling ready to make some goals so that will be first on my list tomorrow.
Things are looking up for me as far as my attitude, energy level, and outlook go. I am even starting to feel the changes that are taking place. I am not crying as much anymore, so that has to be good, right? lol. I know I have a long hard road ahead of me, but I am taking those steps every day toward a new and brighter life for me.
