Good news is, I worked my butt off all last week, so I decided today I will try and take a break. Will be difficult to abstain from anything since I have the kids home but I will try and relax. Maybe read a book or watch a movie or two. I lost a couple of pounds last week even with Christmas which I am very proud of. But I am very nervous about tomorrow. Tomorrow I go back into the doctor for my test results, I'm hoping for one of them to come back not normal so I can pinpoint what is going on and why I'm not feeling very well all the time. I can say with the exercise and better food I have more energy, but not as much as I should. And I still have chest pains a couple times a day 3-4x a week. Along with pelvic pains too which I know is not normal. Hoping for a solution soon. My biggest worry is her telling me there is nothing wrong and it's all in my head, they said that back after I had my son 8 years ago and I knew better than that. So solutions need to be found, or I might need a new doc and i love this place so that will be tough. Good news is I'm almost done with week 3 of my first challenge, the jolly holiday challenge. Can't believe I'm sticking with it. So happy. Curious about what next week will bring with it. My husband is even saying I'm getting stronger, and have more energy. Recognition always makes someone feel better. Well will update after I hear what the doctor has to say tomorrow afternoon. Wishing everyone a fun filled New Year!

    I do hope it is only good news you hear tomorrow. But knowing that something is wrong and NO ONE listening is the worst! My doc did this with my lower back... never wanted to do anything by "adjust" my spine. I paid for my own MRI earlier this month and I have herniated discs pressing on my spine, and no discs at all in 2 places. and that's not even all of my spine. Just did my neck MRI on Friday, so I can't wait to hear what they have to say as I fractured my neck and since it was car-related my insurance wouldn't cover it and it was a company truck and they fired me, so I had none of the insurance information... so no treatment for 3 years.

    So it is screwed up now and that is that, but someone needs to do something.

    If you don't get resolutions tomorrow, do what I did: bust out crying like a maniac and then someone will listen... I promise!!

    Hugs to you and best of luck with the new year,

    I first thought of gallstones when I was reading your blog (chest pains) but then you also mentioned pelvic pain -- so just have no idea -- of course I'm not a doctor. If you feel something is wrong, it's important to find out what, even to the extreme of having to switch doctors.

    Exercise + good food choices = 2 lbs. loss, and that's wonderful!! emoticon
