OK..I know it is NOT weigh day.. But I just could not help myself and after the month of not weighing and NOT losing.I told myself and YOU that I would do whatever it takes..Even if that means weighing everyday.. I don't care! Well....Guess what??? It seems to be working!!!
I just realized!!! Last Tuesday..I set a goal to make it to 179 by this week and I did not think that I could do it!! HELLO.........It may not be weigh day but it is EXACTLY 7 days from the day that I wrote that!
When I met my husband I was around 150..I THINK!!! I wore a size 11/12..
You have no idea how amazing this is to me..But for some this may sound stupid..You have to be where we are. You have be overweight all of your life to understand! Just like no one understands what it is like to live with an illness unless you have been there..
Now not to bring down this happy moment but it brings me to something else I have been thinking about..
I have not mentioned it here..Well because for one thing..It was a personal family matter and I was not about to spill that to everyone before my family member had the chance to do so herself..But anyways..
My sister is living with cancer..She found out recently..It was about a month ago. They did catch it Early! Thank God. But that does mean that she does not have to go through what everyone else does that has cancer because she does..So please say a prayer for her..
But that brings me back to my weight loss..Here I am worried about every little pound when my sister is dealing with CANCER!!! Some how that just seems wrong! Every time I step on the scale and I am happy about the pound I lost and am suddenly sad because I should not be happy when my sister is battling this disease..Does that makes sense? What I am trying to say..Things could be so much worse!!
Things are worse..I deal with MS. My original feeling was that if I lost the weight that it would help me be healthier..That this MS would lighten up and give me a break!! Well my most recent MRI I had lesions that vanished!!! That is almost unheard of!!! That is AMAZING!!!! But I am still not feeling as well as I should! BUMMER!
I am having some major joint pain..To the point where moving my joints is KILLER..I need to call shared solutions which is the place I call for questions about my shots..I have a feeling this a side effect from the drug and it SUCKS!!!
So now that I have let everyone know what is truly going on in my life..Please say prayers for my sister and my family..My sister has 3 children..Two of which are under the age of 3..
It is extremely frustrating wanting to be there for my sister and my nieces and I myself can't get out of bed or walk across the room. So say a prayer for us both! That I feel better and this medication gets a jump start! So that I can hopefully be there for my sister and my nieces..
Cancer is a mean evil disease!!!
