This week has been a struggle for me...
Thursday, May 09, 2013
As I think about how far I have come in relation to my weight I realize also that while I should be grateful that the weight has not returned...I am still on a quest for that proverbial golden ring.
The ring I am speaking of is getting back to an eighty pound weight loss and keeping it there.
Recently my good friend MASTERCARE (hello Mary) has had some good and insightful blog posts about her journey with weight watchers.
She is like me in a lot of ways. We have both been on exterme highs on our good days and then just as much on very bad lows on the bad.
But, here lately I am going through some low points. Examples are below...
This past January my mother had surgery for a mass on her leg and was in the hospital for a month
In February we found the mass was malignant and she now has stage zero to one osteo sarcoma
Also in February was when she started chemotherapy
Within two weeks of starting chemotherapy she lost all of her beautiful hair
She has lost a total of 73 pounds while being on chemotherapy
To see her go through this hell has put my weight loss on the back burner as I dealing with all this by eating.
I have regained back of the eighty pounds I have lost...eight point two pounds.
How can I break free of all this?. Any advice is appreciated.
Mom has just three more treatments left of chemotherapy.
