Here we are ! The beginning of August. My weight has remained the same for some time, not gone up at all, but not down either. Sooner or later it has to give, because I'm not giving up ! I like to make my blogs, interesting and somewhat humorous. Today I am just venting.
This glorious morning, I went in to have a biopsy taken from my breast. I don't know if I'm in denial or just practical, but I didn't tell my children. I figure I'll wait until I have all the information. I have 3 daughters and 3 sons. I am using my Spark friends as an outlet. If I can get the words out in my blog, then I won't be so tempted to 'eat' them.
I feel well and the lump was detected by my primary care physician during my yearly exam... I never in my wildest dreams thought I'd be sitting here today wondering about results. Regular check ups are part of caring for our bodies.
My youngest daughter was diagnosed with b-cancer at age 38 and after 3 rounds of chemo she has been cancer free for one year. My mother was one of 7 sisters. No cancer anywhere there. None among the cousins my age either. As a family we are quite blessed.
I think the best gift we can give ourselves is a healthy , and if possible, organic diet. With all the crazy studies that they do, someone should check on how much pesticide we actually ingest in a year. Thanks for listening Spark friends.....
