I Am Back and Ready To Be Serious!

Friday, March 29, 2013

A lot has transpired since I first started this program well over a year ago. I moved into an apartment by myself, on this journey to find myself! This is a good thing for me. I love living alone and having my own space. I had gone from being in my parents home to being a mother aner and wife. I got divorced and proceeded to raise my children alone, oh, I remarried twice. Both times failure. The only thing I never failed at was taking care of my children. All of my life Iife since my late teen years I had been a little on the chunky size. And as the years progressed so did my weight. I was weighing 358 pounds at one point. I have been on a weight loss yo-yo for well over 34 years. In the past year I have lost my best woman friend, Janice, she died and I never got to say good-bye, we had been friends for 52 years. Closer than friends more like sisters. Then a few months later, my dearest and best male friend Neal, died, from Cancer. He and I had known each other for almost 40 years. Since High School! Last August I had to have major surgery, I had a Lower Abdominal Hernia that was over 18 centimeters and part of my colon (bowels) had become incarcerated and it had to be repaired. My recovery from that was so slow, I ended up on a wound vac and got infection and Kidney stones all within 6 weeks of the surgery, and was hospitalized 4 times. It is not something I want to go through again. However, I am facing the same thing only with a 2 smaller hernias that have come up and a lump in my left breast. So here we go again. I am having testing done and will know more in the next 3 weeks. It is way past time for me to take all of this serious. I am back and ready to go!

    emoticon for the loss of your dear friends. Treasure your memories of them and try not to dwell on their physical absence.

    Do what you can with where you are at in this stage of the journey to a healthier lifestyle. One step at a time. ~INDYGIRL's blogs & team entries have been a great help to me. I purchased an inexpensive, table-top peddler for aerobic exercise that I could manage after seeing this at her site.

    Sending you good wishes for the outcome on the medical complications you are dealing with.

    emoticon back.
