Talk about having a weight lifted....

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

After spending the past 5 years trying to exercise and ending up with a very messed up back, I made a major decision.

I had breast reduction surgery. Although my insurance has originally denied it, I am confident that they will change their mind on appeal.

Nearly all my breast tissue was fibrocystic which meant that I could have weighed 110 and I would have still had F cups. It also means that there was no way I could have exercised.

What a weight, figuratively AND literally has been lifted.

After only 5 days, my back is already feeling better. There's a little strain based on everything shifting, but honestly, I feel like a million bucks.

But the challenge I face is this--

I have cystic breasts because of a hormonal imbalance. Losing weight is pretty much the best option. It should help. Less belly fat should make a big difference.

In other words, the boobs could come back if I don't get this taken care of.

And quickly.

So let's just say, this is a game changer.

I have an opportunity.

I am taking it.

I can't exercise for 6 weeks, but I can start with the food and basic things like walking.

My oatmeal this morning was delicious. And it will be delicious every morning.

And away I go....

    Excited for you and the reduction. You're going to feel like a million bucks once everything gets settled! Plus, no more black eyes when you run!

    I know you can do this. :-) I hope you keep blogging, because I enjoy hearing that you never give up. :-)

    Glad to see you back. I, too, had oatmeal this morning. I have been keeping the frozen steelcut oatmeal from Costco in the fridge at work along with chobani greek yogurt to keep me from snacking on the "bad" stuff.
