Week 3, This week finally getting back on track.

Thursday, October 21, 2010

This has been an interesting trip so far. Week 3 ended on a good note. Had a good day Sunday. Monday's weigh in was for a loss of 2.8 lbs. Not too shabby for really not being with it for part of the week. Week 4 , well not much was happening. I had a severe migraine for a couple of days. I was so sick to my stomach from it that nothing was staying in me. I still felt very yucky the next day and really just started getting more comfortable eating today. And i have been very tempted to resort to the junk. I didn't, but i really was not careful either. Today I was finally able to do a whole 2 mile walk, the first time I really did anything this week. I tried on Monday and got some in but the migraine was just too much. I had to get my respite workers to care for the kids and I spent the rest of the next 2 days in bed. Yesterday was a rough day for other reasons. My ex husband has pancreatic cancer. He is really struggling right now. He is in so much pain, his belly keeps filling with fluid because the cancer has spread to the liver. His doctor stopped his previous chemo because of complications, and it really wasn't working. He is now on palliative chemo. He don't want to give up, he is only 35. On the other hand, he is dying. There really is no question of it. This is just such an upsetting situation. I will be visiting him tomorrow and trying to mentally prepare for this as best as I can. One day at a time, that's all we can do. And have faith. Ultimately, it's in God's hands. I am getting back with the program here. Now I feel its more important than ever. If I do anything to try to avoid that fate, I am going to do it.

    I am so very sorry about your exhusband. I will pray for him, & may God spare him the suffering. Please take special care of yourself right now, as your sons will be needing your strength & courage to get through this. You are in my thoughts...
