Been MIA, but now I'm back!

Tuesday, December 01, 2009

Update: 1st December, 2009 - Good News/Bad News.

Bad news - I have not tracked my nutrition or fitness consistently since school opened for my son in September. I just seem to have less time.

Worse news - I have not tracked AT ALL for the past 2 months.

Worst news - I have been eating things I know I shouldn't AND in the last few months, there have been 1 to 2 weeks at a time when I have not exercised AT ALL! I also found a breast lump. :(

GOOD NEWS - Despite my inactivity, I did have weeks and days when I did exercise and I kept semi-active on the weekends.

Better News - I also kept most of my NEW good eating habits and I met my third goal of 45lbs lost at the end of October and kept at that weight up until today. It was rough, I kept fluctuating between 40 and 43lbs lost. I must get my reward of silver earrings this weekend!

Best News - I also found out that the lump was not a lump but an enlarged, inflamed lymph node (which has since gone down with meds). I still have to go in for a follow-up, but I feel good after getting a call from the doc and now I can't feel the "lump" or the pain associated with it.

    Hey Girl, I am glad to know that everything is going well with you. Glad to know that the lump was not serious. No worries, you will get back on track. I know the feelings. Keep your head up and let's get this weight off. Email me if you see me online.

    I'm glad your bad news turned out to be not-bad-at-all news. You must have been scared when you found that lump, but so relieved when it turned out to be nothing too serious. I hope it gets all better very soon.

    Congratulations on your continued weight loss. You had me worried when you said you'd not been tracking and eating stuff you shouldn't, but clearly that was only an occasional thing and you're still on track and shedding those pounds.

    Here's to you getting new earrings this weekend.
