It has been a really wild month. After some rather invasive medical tests, I ended up going into a severe flare, which I am still battling (yes, for the entire month). I have more medical stuff coming up, but for once I got some really wonderful news.
One of my dearest friends wrote to me and asked if I would want to be in her wedding party in August. I am so excited to be able to be by her side when she marries the man she loves! Though, of course, the second thing to pop into my head right after my excitement is "oh no, I have to wear a dress." I also have not exactly been great with my eating and this flare has almost completely wiped out my ability to exercise. All factors combined I have managed to gain almost six pounds back, though I am guessing part of that is water weight. I have 3 months and 2 weeks before the wedding and I have to be down at least 20lbs by then, in order to fit into my dress. I know that I can lose at least that much and plenty of inches, it is just a matter of gaining momentum, getting my eating under control, and figuring out how to exercise with this flare.
I am trying to push out of my mind the idea that I might not be able to go. Honestly, I recognize that this disease is going to be with me the rest of my life and sometimes when I really want to do things I am going to have to battle through the pain, etc. The problem is going to be convincing everyone else that I can handle it. Ha! Life. Ya know.
I need to do some more updating, but right now I am having trouble putting together coherent thoughts. So I am off to watch Netflix, before I sleep the night away!
Have a great weekend everyone!
