It's more than just a number on the scale, now!

Saturday, December 08, 2012

Hello Everyone!

Happy Holidays! I hope all is well in your world!

I've been busy, getting ready for my grandchildren, daughter, & SIL's visit to SW Florida! I so want to show them a good time while they're here! Our weather's been gorgeous...we're in the low 80's & it's sunny & beautiful! I've talked w/the kids, & they are extremely excited! Ya know guys, this is my very first Florida Christmas! Gosh, I'm excited too!!!

Um, I DID decorate, just a bit...& I put up a little decorated emoticon ! And it's so cute!

Many of you know that I had an ultrasound done of my left breast last Friday...& then I had a needle biopsy follow up on Thursday. What they saw was a small grape-size cyst & they wanted to get a better look-see. It turned out to be just an ordinary fluid filled cyst, & nothing more. Now I must follow up every 3 months. No big deal! I just want to take this time to remind everyone to get a MAMMOGRAM done & follow up as your physician recommends! The life you save, may be your own! Ok now, I'm done preaching!

I did go to Weight Watcher's after my biopsy & the scale's showed I was UP 0.4 lbs this week. Uh, honestly, I was partaking in a little stress eating on a few days & I kinda expected it. And I was a little angry w/myself...until I took a look at my SP ticker & I saw "28 lbs" lost so far!

28 lbs since I joined WW's! emoticon

And I thought, hey, that's fantastic! And I'm focused & eating mindfully, MOST of the time! And I'm eating healthy & nutritiously, & I'm exercising everyday! And here's the best part! Everyone is NOTICING I've lost weight! I'm even down a size in my work out clothes! And...

A lady came up to me in a ZUMBA class & said to me "It's more than just a number on the scale, now! You're looking fabulous!!!" I was speechless, & almost brought to tears! Me! I was so proud! And I danced my heart out that day, 'cause I was so HAPPY!

And I truly believe it's about MORE than just that number! And so, even though I'm up 0.4...I'm going to focus on the fact that I'm DOWN 28 lbs!!! And that's cause for celebration!!! And I vow to do better this week!

Go me!!! emoticon

EnJOY your weekend all! And stay healthy & happy!!!

    Rose ... I'm so glad your cyst investigation turned out so well. I know the anxiety - I've been there, done that.

    The weight thing - 0.4 could be a glass of water. Don't even think about it. You're doing great and you're an inspiration to us all. If I don't talk to you before, have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

    Congratulations!!! Love your positive attitude. You are right to focus on how well you had done.
    Losing weight is just part/bonus of changing for a healthy lifestyle. I'm trying to do the same too. I've been feeling better overall and am a much happier person.
    Good for you and keep it up.
