The yo-yo of losing weight and gaining it back and then some has taken a serious toll on my health. My appendix ruptured in November when I was already suffering a major kidney infection. When determining a course of action tbey also discovered a kidney stone the size of a tennis ball. So that meant two surgeries and a stent for weeks to remove the stone fragments. It was miserable. But my doctor has been stumped by the makeup of the stone. He estimates it had been forming for 7-9 years based on the layers he saw. Which leads me back to a time when I lost 120 pounds in 8 months. I looked great but losing so fast caused my hair to thin significantly and i believe was the start of my kidney problems. I am now focusing on being healthy, not thin. Making one choice at a time that will become a habit. It's going to be a struggle because I have gained so much since my surgeries. But I will be healthier tomorrow and every tomorrow after that than I was today.
