Almost a year

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

Wow! It has been almost a year since my last blog entry.

Lots has happened. Including gaining about 20 lbs.

-We gave invitro a try. $12,000 for nothing. It was a hard thing, physically, emotionally, but at least we tried. The good that came out of it, is I am a renewed person, focusing on myself and getting healthy. Actually this has brought my husband and I closer, which is the exact opposite that I thought would happen.

-We are all moved into our new place. So much to do! I am not used to 5 acres to take care of. But its fun! Hubby is working on getting some mini donkeys, and I think chickens are to follow. He will have lots to take care of - cuz I already claimed that I am not.. lol

-My brother was diagnosed with esophagus cancer, he has had chemo, radiation and surgery- doing better but it's a slow process.

-My mother, who had colon cancer about 1 1/2 yrs ago, went in to get her gall bladder removed, and they found a abnormality. She has a cancerous tumor, they are just not sure where it is exactly and how bad it is. She will be going in for a ct scan on thursday.

I am not letting any of these become excuses. Granted, I did gain 20 lbs, but I am proud I will not let it get any further. I weighed about 3 weeks ago, done really well eating and exercising, and have not weighed since. Trying not to.
