Hello everyone! I don't know about you, but I'm really excited about the upcoming holidays! I just hope that they go by smoothly. October and November have been crazy, and mostly in a crappy way. In the beginning of October, I was sick for over a week. I refused to eat or drink anything, and I missed a lot of gym time. Right after that ended, I had a breast cancer scare, I found a lump October 8, got into the doctor on the 18th, then went for a mammogram on the 20th, where they told me that I was thankfully okay. I was terrified. It was like my life was on hold. After that was over with, I went on vacation for two weeks, where a lot of fast food was involved. I am proud to say that I worked out almost every day while I was out there, though! I only gained about 3 lbs and lost them right away! When we came home, I went back to work right away. Things were going well, I had taken off my vacation weight and was getting back into the swing of things. Then, I got the horrible news on November 11 that my friend and co-worker of 5 and a half years, died suddenly, just hours after I walked with her to her car after work. That same night, my mom went into the hospital with pneumonia. I was so heartbroken, and scared for my mom at the same time. I spent a few days crying nonstop and not sleeping. I missed the gym due to my lack of sleep, depression and visiting my mom. My mom got to come home a few days later. She is doing a lot better! I went to my friend's wake and funeral too last week. I just hope that disaster stays away now. I am once again back on track, my mood is a lot better and I'm now looking forward to my two favorite holidays; Thanksgiving and Christmas! I bought a new dress yesterday for my company Christmas party that's on December 3rd. To my surprise, I tried on a size 3X and it was too big! That made my day! I just need to keep going! By next year's Christmas party, I should already be down to my goal weight! I hope everyone is doing well! Im going to try to be on here a little more if I can. I miss everyone!!!! Happy Holidays!!!!
