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.
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....
