Crazy Daze...

Saturday, January 31, 2015

Sometimes things just seem so surreal.

I have been doing so well staying on track, it's about being healthy for me. Yes I want the numbers on the scale to go down; but more importantly I need to feel strong, look at myself and not hate myself and have energy.

That has been happening, I am making progress on all fronts.

I have to say that I am ready for a new number (a lower one) on the scale, I am tired of the old one. Plus it will move me from the 190's to the 180's and that feels like progress. I weigh in every Sunday and take measurements the first Sunday of the month. So tomorrow is a big day! emoticon

So I am doing all this and focusing on walking, eating and well just not panicking honestly.

I went for a regular follow up with my cancer surgeon Thursday afternoon. It's been 3 years and everything has been great. I expected him to say...see ya in a year. But instead he said, can you feel that? Has this been here? Lets take a biopsy. His gut says scar tissue. I want to go with his gut. This was supposed to be over, I am getting my life back!

I am doing my best not to panic and hope that this little thing has shown up because I have lost weight and can now be felt. I have a lot of necrotic tissue after my breast reconstruction. He said it wasn't the same as that tissue and it does feel different; so we are hoping for scar tissue. And praying...

I have not told my kids, I don't want them to worry. It will be hard tomorrow because we have a party at my son's new loft to celebrate his new place and his birthday. Its a pre-game party too. I don't want to put a damper on the festivities so I am trying to hide my concern. It is so hard to keep my mind off it though.

So for today I am going to focus on SKINNY and HEALTHY and worry about the number on the scale because that is an easier hill to climb.

    Great idea to measure the first of every month! I will have to steal that. You have a great attitude, keep your head held high and just know that you are strong enough to push through anything!
