legcramps - Friday Mar 01, 2013

Weight: 167.5

(source: http://www.gagful.com/tags/friday.html)

I can't believe I made it to Friday. I was beginning to think it would always be Thursday.

Let's see, what did I do yesterday? I was a little ornery and had no words to define my feelings to DDs. Well kids, I was ornery.

Foods - mocha, coffee, turkey sandwich, chicken, brown rice, peanut butter sandwich, lots of water.

I gained slightly this morning and i'm pretty sure it's because of all the zig-zagging i'm doing with my eating. It will even out, and if it continues to zig-zag I will start to focus on success via something other than the scale.

Exercise - was a 20 minute walk and some great core exercises.

Surgery Update: I was called to book a surgery date yesterday; it will happen on March 8th. I'm freaking out. But I am also grateful that I was called so quickly. And I only have about a week to freak out and then it will be done. So I have some more bloodwork to get the lab to do, and a pre-op telephone assessment to complete on Monday, and then get ready for post-op recovery.

If I do really well with recovery, I should be in tip top shape by the time slo-pitch rolls around in May.

I have also heard that cycling is supposed to be easy on the knees; the experts actually suggest this exercise for a better and quicker recovery after arthroscopic surgery. I have a stationary bike at home, but it's too short for me and my knee locks when I use it. I wonder if I had an actual bike if that would help my recovery, and maybe it could be an added workout too. I'm definitely thinking way ahead of myself here, but I wonder if it would be worth looking into buying something that's fitted just for me? Is that even possible?

LOL. I would also have to learn how to ride a bike again. But it would be nice to add another outside activity to my arsenal, especially one that no one will LECTURE me about doing. It's like I have 25 mothers all of a sudden.

Progress as of today: 17.5 lbs lost so far, only 7.5 lbs to go!

Puddles on 03/01/2013:
good news it will be done soon - Have a great weekend

Umpqua on 03/01/2013:
Thinking of oyou and hoping all goes well with the surgery. That's fantastic they were able to get you in so quickly!

OhioRaven on 03/01/2013:
Your bike is too small ? Raise the seat on that thing. (There, I'm done Lecturing you.)

biscottibody59 on 03/01/2013:
Easier said than done to just think about how you're going to be bouncing around on a healthy knee real soon! Hang in there--have a good weekend!

lolla on 03/01/2013:
I am happy the future looks very good with the knee all fixed soon. I wish you all the best. Love the pic.

mylilsista on 03/01/2013:
I heard the same thing, that cycling is less stressful for your knees. Good luck with your surgery (hugz)!

grannyannie on 03/01/2013:
It makes everybody nervous having surgery, but it will be fine. Hope your recovery is quick. You'll remember how to ride a real bike - no way to forget. :)

RYC thanks for commments. France is just a 2 hour flight for us and I'd love to go more often!

V on 03/01/2013:
Good News that you will be onthe road to recovery soon..It is too bad that you don't live nearby, I have a stationary recumbent bike that I would GIVE to you..It sits there gathering dust and it also makes for a great place to hang clothes too, LOL Seriously it is really good for knee issues which is why I bought it and then Shaun T came into my life..The END Hope you have a good weekend girl <3

V on 03/01/2013:
P.S. CC and onions? I guess I will have to try it on your suggestion

legcramps - Thursday Feb 28, 2013

Weight: 166.0

I'm getting stir-crazy. If it was Sunday afternoon, I would be begging my wallyball team to take me back. I need to sweat more in order to be nice to people and babies on a regular basis. No offense to any babies who may be reading this now.

I went to a Lia Sophia party last night; jewelry is not my forte, but I was able to find a mother's day gift, a gift for grandma's birthday in April, and my boss's christmas gift all in one fell swoop, so that was handy. Of course, I also bought myself a necklace because it was half price and I felt like I deserved it

I have no idea what kind of mood i'm in today, but I don't think it's a good one. I just wrote out like fifteen different versions of this paragraph and icksnayed them all because they just weren't saying what I wanted to say.

I was going to say more, but then I decided it was all pretty much hogwash.

Have a good one

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

Puddles on 02/28/2013:
You know its a a good day for hogwash. LOL It is what it is right. I hope your day gets better.

OhioRaven on 02/28/2013:
Yes, when I can't figure out how to say , what I'm trying to say...I keep it short. Have a healthy day, LC, and don't make any babies cry today.

lolla on 02/28/2013:
ha ha ha I hope there are no babies around, just us, babes...well I know how you feel, I was like that yesterday but nothing like a new day to makes us better. hope you are all good tomorrow!

V on 02/28/2013:
Good score at the jewelry party, one stop shop holla!! BTW this baby is NOt offended ;) LOL have a good evening!

legcramps - Wednesday Feb 27, 2013

Weight: 166.0

I finally brought my head out of my work today at 12:15 p.m. when a co-worker told me it was lunchtime. I was like "what's that now? who? where am I?" Craziness, but it's simmered down now, so that's good.

It's Wednesday!!! Who's happy? THIS GIRL. For no other reason than being halfway through the workweek

Ended up doing a quick 30 minute walk during a hockey game at the rink. SURPRISE!!! That was my workout! I was actually frightened of really looking forward to attempting 500 pushups. Alas, the stars did not align. Bummer.

Food - mocha, oatmeal, snack?, chicken, brown rice, green beans, snack?

Exercise - walking is on the agenda again, 30 minutes. I might also try Shaun T's hip hop abs class and see what that's all about. I noticed there is a slice of it on youtube so maybe i'll eat that for dessert.

I'm hungry. I woke up hungry and bloated this morning; didn't eat enough yesterday. My eyes are burning also - lack of sleep. Tossed and turned until midnight and was up earlier than normal this morning. Just can't sleep. Don't know why.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

Puddles on 02/27/2013:
I felt the same way when I was working. Wednesday almost felt like the week was over. Get to get some sleep. Have a great day.

getmebackto150 on 02/27/2013:
Glad to hear you are feeling happy today! Have a great day:)

V on 02/27/2013:
Tell ya what, I will volunteer for the 500 pushups since I do a billion of them in Asylum..Hahahaha Yeah NOT ;) I think 100 is enough..So thrilled to hear you are in good spirits and BTW C-4 is a non steroid performance/muscle enhancer..I used to take it all the time before I gave up caffeine..My super hot bod GNC guy gave me free samples and suggested that I decrease the intake to see if it wouldn't make me feel as nutzo/bouncing off the walls ..So far so good but still not sure if I want to go back to relying on energy boosting supplements.. I have a week supply so if i don't rage afterwards I may go back to it..It really rocks my world in a good way just don't wanna rip anyone's head or ear off..LOL Have a great evening! <3

horn_of_plenty on 02/28/2013:
thanks for all your advice..."take the 4th completely off!"...i am trying to think a little more concretely and not just think in terms of how to appease my coworkers/boss. i am trying to think and do what's right for myself these days...well, moreso anyways.

legcramps - Tuesday Feb 26, 2013

I'm glad I got 20 minutes of walking in yesterday because my friend's Wii wasn't working so we didn't work out as scheduled last night. At least I still did something!

I also changed up my dinner and had an omellette pressed into whole grain bread and 1 cup soup. It was actually a nice change from the regular chicken or salmon and rice combo. I still have a serving of soup left, so I might just have this dinner again tonight.

No one wants to walk at the track tonight, so I will do a home workout instead; I haven't decided what kind of workout yet, it could be anything. It could be 500 pushups.


It probably won't be 500 pushups though.

So, i'll surprise you tomorrow with my Workout of the Day.

Food - mocha, blueberries, salad, soup, egg omelette sandwich, snack??


I got a LOT of sleep last night, as compared to my usual amount of sleep, so I am full of p^ss and vinegar today. What a strange phrase. The more I say it (in my head of course), the less proper it sounds.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

Puddles on 02/26/2013:
It must be the Prairie girl in you coming out LOL LOL Have a great day but it already sound like you are on your way to one.

getmebackto150 on 02/26/2013:
Have a great day!!!

V on 02/26/2013:
LOL! P^ss and vinegar huh? The wonderslugs at work better steer clear, or else ;) Great exercise plan today, LOL.. Have a good one my friend :)

thenewMLE on 02/26/2013:
You DO sound feisty today!! I never understood that phrase either. When I read 500 pushups I started thinking how much of a whimp I really am because I can't do but maybe 3 at the most!!! So I realized you are shooting for the moon. I like omelettes too. We had a Western omelette Sunday for breakfast with all kinds of peppers and onions and ham and it was topped with salsa. RYC, thanks for the prayers. I think I am so "up" this morning because I am sure this might end Dad's 25 year struggle with cancer! I'm also anxious for the weather to clear because I think I am over loaded with extra energy! Have a great day!

OhioRaven on 02/26/2013:
Breakfast for dinner. I like that.

supercheese on 02/26/2013:
totally do 500 push ups!!!

supercheese on 02/26/2013:
i kid! :D

OhioRaven on 02/26/2013:
Thanks big time for your input. If I were to do 500 pushups, it would probably be 1 or 2 a day.

niftyjack on 02/27/2013:
... Pass and vinegar? I don't think I've ever heard that phrase before.

Love to see what workout you actually end up doing, if not 500 pushups...

legcramps - Monday Feb 25, 2013

My weekend was okay, aside from an event on Saturday. I had a group of friends who were working a lunch fundraiser; I wasn't working it because I wasn't asked to; when I walked in only one person bothered to say hello to me. I felt a little like a leper  It ended up being okay though, I hung out with my Mom and her friends  This is what I mean when I say that people are only SOMETIMES cool. I swear, my small town could be the next reality show... "Prairie Girls in CAN". We can be real b*&tch$s ,'yo.

And yes, I do include myself in that generalization.

Annnnywhoppers, the rest of the weekend was spent doing housework and chilling on the couch. I also did a workout video yesterday that was only 20 minutes long and had me in a slight sweat at the end of it - hooray I sweated! FINALLY! And it wasn't hard on my knee at all.

Last night I made juice with 2 beets, 2 apples, a carrot and some celery. I really needed to use up the beets; i've been avoiding them lately. So, yeah, today should be interesting.

Food - mocha, salad, snack???, chicken, brown rice, green beans, snack???

I'm going to attempt to downsize my dairy intake over the next few weeks. This week I started by chucking the rest of the yogurt. It was about a month expired anyways :) so no real loss LOL. I still have the milk I use in my oatmeal to change out, and to finish up the block of mozarella cheese in the fridge. After that, I should be in a good position to leave out dairy almost entirely (this is not to say I won't have the occassional frozen yogurt treat)

To compensate for the lack of calcium in my diet, I was going to start making smoothies again for breakfast - 1/2 banana, another type of fruit, spinach, hemp/chia seeds, GNC, almond milk and orange juice. I love them, don't know why I don't make them more often.

After that, i'm going to start working on my breads, pastas and rice - leaning towards whole grain; only a few changes in my daily diet will be required.

By summer, i'm hoping to be at a point to start incorporating more legumes and nuts into meals, and start nixing red meat. Not that this would be a large challenge either, since I stick to eating chicken and salmon a LOT, but summer is always BBQ season, so it will be a challenge during those months for sure.

If you can't tell, I watched Forks Over Knives over the weekend, and now i'm on a mission to decrease my likelihood for cancer and heart disease, which too many of my family members struggle with. Plus it's nice to feel good about what's going into your mouth

I'm glad that I incorporated juicing into daily life, and I hope to keep up with that throughout all this change.

Coffee will probably be the LAST thing I try to cut out

Exercise - Just Dance at friend's - 30 minutes; Walking DVD at home - 20 minutes

Other news! I got my golf membership finally and now i'm ANTSY and need to start golfing RIGHT NOW.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

Tangalyn~ on 02/25/2013:
is 'forks over knives' a tv show or like a movie? sounds like something id be interested in...im glad u found a workout that wasnt too hard on ur knees :) have a great day!!

V on 02/25/2013:
LOL @ the title of the "reality show" ;) Your plan of action sounds like a good one! Glad to hear that your knee is feeling better

supercheese on 02/25/2013:
ahahaha i watched it too over the weekend!!! its incredible to see the difference with and without animal protein!

Puddles on 02/25/2013:
Your sure planning a lot of changes. A little at a time is the best way - good luck with your new plan. Take care and have a great day and week.

getmebackto150 on 02/25/2013:
LOVE LOVE LOVE Forks over Knives... After watching that movie I was determined to go vegan... Its HARD... I still would love to... in a perfect world if I had my own personal chef, lol... I do try to incorporate LOTS of vegan meals into my life though... I actually just borrowed the "Forks over Knives" cookbook from the library... Haven't had a chance to read it yet, but if I find any easy and good recipes I will post them here!

I too have tried multiple times to quit coffee and it just isn't in the cards for me right now, love love love my coffee... I do use coconut milk or almond milk though-speaking of calcium intake, those milks are VERY high in calcium, so if you like them at all they can be helpful in the calcium department!! Have a great day:)

OhioRaven on 02/25/2013:
I've heard you girls speak about this movie. I tried to YouTube it but couldn't for some reson. I'll have to look it up.

lolla on 02/25/2013:
Good job getting healthier!

lolla on 02/25/2013:
Good job getting healthier!

biscottibody59 on 02/25/2013:
Good going! I guess you've watched "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" too? I ask because of your recent juicing. I don't know where you'd get it to watch for free--it was on hulu.com, but I remember you can't access that from where you are.

Haha--we live in the same town, only thousands of miles apart!

I've had to "sort of" befriend a neighbor because of attrition--death, death and more death and vacant houses. She's different, and I've preferred avoiding her over the years. We're supposed to celebrate differences right? Anyway, she wanted to have her husband's dog euthanized and then buried with him. The dog wasn't sick or old or a nuisance. Fortunately she finally found a home for him (the dog, not the husband's corpse--yikes) after I offered to take him. He was soo cute--half Shar-pei, half Chihuahua.

Arm's length, I must remind myself.

Umpqua on 02/25/2013:
I watched Forks over Knives this weekend too, and it really made an impact. We have cancer in both our families and my boys drink a lot of milk so I'm planning some changes too once I'm back on my feet. I told hubby I want to move us toward a "largely"plant-based diet and he's OK with that. Smoothies are the bomb and I plan to make more of those too. It's the only way to get green veggies into my 4-year-old.

OhioRaven on 02/25/2013:
That Sears Tower thing is probably just a motivater. Says I went over 1557 ft. Lights, bells, whistles. But... I stayed on the Dam Thing, Sweating, for a half hour :v)

Puddles on 02/25/2013:
I looked up the Forks over Knives on the internet they have several one hour video. It is an interesting concept. It is basically what I am doing but I enjoy my chicken and fish - not beef or pork all that much. I don't fry so I don't use oils or that stuff and I don't do any of the white stuff or sugars. I have a lot of vegetable and a lot of fruits. The only dairy stuff I use is milk in coffee and yogurt. Instead of using salad dressing I enjoy using cottage cheese on my romaine lettuce it give it a nice taste and adds a protein. So I would have to cut out chicken, all dairy. Introduce beans or lentils and nuts. Do I have it right.

 Friend cancelled the shred workout yesterday because her back was hurting, so we decided walking at the track would be best for her.

Probably best for me too, since my knee is bothersome even when walking and even with a brace. I feel like I hardly go anywhere without wearing a brace these days, so this morning i'm being a rebel and going without  (almost feels like i'm nekkid)

Got home yesterday and my driveway was cleared out for me. Figured it was a particular guy I knew and sure enough, got a text about an hour later from him. He had the skidsteer in town and just decided to clear it for me. You know, on his way to doing other... skidsteer type things. People are cool. Sometimes.

It's going to be a very quiet day today, hardly anyone in the office. Suits me fine!

Food - mocha, salad, yogurt, skinny b, homemade pizza with lots of veggies

(almost got into a heated argument on facebook about the skinny b breakfast cereal. it's made on the BC coast and I just like the stuff, but another chick on facebook thinks it's crap and was incredibly blunt in saying so. i even had a nasty comment all typed out to reassure her that her opinion was not the only one that could be read, and then erased it. i'm always complaining about how people vent a little too much on facebook; i should abide by my own standards, right?)

Exercise - I am going to try and find the walking DVDs on youtube - we might decide we want to walk more often and ease back into the shred eventually, so I want to see if these workouts will work for us. Also might do some resistance exercises.

Other - Horrible nightmare; woke up practically sobbing my brains out the other night. I've been a little tired during the day and this morning I didn't want to wake up. Nightmare was about my brother, and i'm tempted to e-mail him and tell him that under no circumstances should he try biking down a steep hill with a tiny tricycle.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

Puddles on 02/22/2013:
Have a great day.

thenewMLE on 02/22/2013:
hahaha - I am laughing at your nightmare with your brother!!! They talk about parallels but I really seem to have several with y'all! I too had an overwhelming week at work and I woke up to a nightmare - get this - about MY brother!!! He was pulling at the stand up freezer to grab some cupcakes at the back (he went Paleo 2 weeks ago and is driving us crazy...) and he pulled the whole freezer over and turned to me and said "I guess you will have to clean that up!) Well I woke up yelling obscenities at him and the nightmare was so fresh I told my hubby about it. But the tiny trike really hit a visual for me!! I hope you get some easy exercise soon and eventually a new knee that doesn't hurt! I road rashed mine pretty bad and it hurts for the shower water to hit it. I'm actually wearing a jean skirt to work because the denim touching against hurts pretty bad. But mine is only skin hurt and I hope that heals quickly. I am praying for a quick recovery once you get your knee fixed. have a great weekend and watch out for those shots - they sneak up on ya!

biscottibody59 on 02/22/2013:
RYC: It's really just a headline--the article never mentions dreams:-)

Hang in there--I think I'd be babying the knee whenever possible to prevent further damage--but then again I don't know about all that stuff!

OhioRaven on 02/22/2013:
People ARE cool.

lolla on 02/22/2013:
love the image of the nightmare, ha ha ha!!:) Just focus on the COOL people like us and don't pay attention to people with stupid opinions!

V on 02/22/2013:
Girl don't you know that there are people out there that thrives on trolling social media just to troll for confrontation..The last thing you want to to is feed into it by replying to their nonsense..LOL Let the haters hate while they sit on the sidelines and NEVER participate which is why they can't congratulate.. Hahahahaha Yep you can so use that if ya like ;)

Yesterday I wandered down to the hospital and got my labwork and x-rays done. Now just to wait to hear from the surgeon.

The nice thing about yesterday is that my house is clean again after a few slothful days where I was too lazy to get up and do anything. I've been slowly cleaning and organizing everything, and I must say that I feel so much better. Lazy days are great, but lazy long weekends? No thank you!

Food - mocha, oatmeal, salad, homemade pizza (lots of veggies and a few slices of pepperoni), skipping the juicing today as it looks like i'll get my quota of veggies in without it.

Exercise - 30 day shred

A few other to-do's to get done today, but mostly i'm looking forward to getting my shred in. I need to sweat today.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 02/21/2013:
Hey, just to let you know, these girls on the video were working Core this, and Core that, lunged and stuff. I was ok and kept up, but later at work I felt like and Old Man. Ha-ha. It was a good sorta hurt. Have a good day.

lolla on 02/21/2013:
Good job cleaning the house, it reminds me that I should do the same!

Puddles on 02/21/2013:
Good job - have a great day.

V on 02/21/2013:
RYQ both of my knees are shot,the right one always seems to give me the most trouble but i wear a brace for the supercharged workouts..Make sure you consult with your doc about Insanity..I for one modifies the jumps when my knee doesn't want to cooperate..You can simulate the jumps with squatting low and do a small jump(feet barely leaving the ground) You will still reap the benefits without impact.. You are correct I take glucosamine for the knees.. The also make a drink called "Joint Juice" from what I hear it is really good but I would rather save my calories for food or booze, sad but true...hahahaha

Hope you had a good day <3

legcramps - Wednesday Feb 20, 2013

Weight: 166.0

Did some walking yesterday at the track, about 30 minutes. I wasn't feeling very hungry and didn't eat enough yesterday; just trying hard to get back into routine and shake off the weekend bleariness.

By mid-afternoon yesterday my knee was feeling much better, the body fluid that the bath salts sucked out of me on Monday had returned and I was finally back to walking half-normal LOL.

Yesterday was one of those "series of unfortunate events" days at work. So far today is lovely and nothing like yesterday. Knock on wood. May be too early to tell.

food - mocha, oatmeal, salad, brown rice, baked salmon, green beans, yogurt.

exercise - walking at track, 30 minutes.

errands - send & pick up post, purchase golf membership, get x-rays and bloodwork done, send e-mail regarding wallyball :(

household - dishes, finish folding laundry, haul crap upstairs, take out garbage, watch Survivor!

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

Puddles on 02/20/2013:
Take care of yourself - have a good day

yes bad weather really cold and snowing - -24 windchill today and -26 tomorrow. but sunny

legcramps - Tuesday Feb 19, 2013

Busy day at work today. Trying to catch up from the long weekend.

My weekend could have been a lot better, but no use whining about it now, LOL. I stayed up late on Friday after getting back from my appointment, just watching t.v. On Saturday I wanted to visit grandma but she was taking a nap when the timing worked for me, so instead I visited a friend in the hospital, then did a few errands and went home. Saturday night I went out with friends and had WAY TOO MANY sour puss shots, and walk-danced a little bit. Those of you on facebook's DD page will get that reference.

Sunday I was too hungover to do anything except eat the junkiest, greasiest foods I could get my hands on. Horrible what a night of drinking can do to a person's willpower. Shot straight down the drain. I didn't eat until about 4pm, but I tell 'ya I made up for the lost day. I skipped wallyball tonight.

I was still feeling ill on Monday, but I managed to at least get some laundry and dishes done. The basics.

Dad gave me some sea salts to try out in the bath, so I did that yesterday. I soaked for about 20 minutes. Before I went in, I thought my knee was feeling pretty good (maybe all the alcohol I drank greased my joints? no? am I dreaming?), but when I came out oh boy! did things hurt! Lots of things hurt! Things hurt that hadn't ever hurt before! I'm walking like i'm 80 years old for goodness' sake!

So I suffered a lot yesterday, missed out on the dancing workout, and was pretty miserable when I finally went to bed. Things haven't changed much since then. I suffered this morning getting undressed to shower, towelling off, getting re-dressed, getting boots on, taking boots off, getting in the car was THE WORST.

But, you know, one thing at a time. First things first, fill out form so that physician can get it back to surgeon and my surgery can happen that much faster, because at the rate i'm heading downhill, I won't be able to walk by the end of the week!

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

getmebackto150 on 02/19/2013:
I hear you on the hangover willpower eraser... It gets me EVERY SINGLE TIME... Hope today is better for you and your knee feels better!!

OhioRaven on 02/19/2013:
Hope you feel better.

OMG I am so sorry, i didn't see Friday's update about your knee :( Please forgive me..I am happy to hear that you did get some answers as well as being able to resume normal activities after your recovery :) I know you may be a little nervous but they give out some heavy duty night night potion before the procedure..Whatever mood you are in before you go under is how you normally wake up..The last surgery I had, the last thing I remembered was looking up at the ceiling that had a really nice beach scape painted on it, I smiled as I thought man would it be nice to have a Pina Colada with Myer's float.. When I came around I asked the nurse for a drink an a shot, and asked her why my boobs didn't look any bigger?? WTF?( for some reason I thought got a boob job, LOL) Hahahaha anyhoo I thought I would share that with you :)

Hahahahaha on you walk dance routine, I bet it was a HOTT number <3 How long will will you be at home after your procedure? Do you need reading material? I could send you some :)

legcramps - Friday Feb 15, 2013

Weight: 166.0

Hi all, thought i'd sign on and give you guys an update on my doctor's appointment this afternoon...

As a side note, it was also my great fortune to treat my Dad to lunch since I was in the city :) He is doing very well; has gained weight and looks absolutely AWESOME. He has recovered from cancer so well, I only hope that I can be such an inspiration in my own life. When you realize one possesses the will to live it's an amazing and awe-inspiring moment.

Doc checked me out, poked and prodded, and the final diagnosis is a torn medial meniscus. I have some forms to fill out, another appt with my general physician, and then on the wait list for arthroscopic surgery, specifically a meniscectomy. I was told with a full recovery and no complications, I will be able to return to having full use of my knee in all of my sporting activities. Great news!

My first surgery = not the greatest news. But I am grateful it is something that has the potential to be resolved and will only look at this in a positive light. No need to make myself even more nervous about an upcoming surgery!

PSA - take care of yourselves. this is the most important thing you can do in your life for yourself and for others. never take your ability for granted, friends.


Much love and thanks for your support and your concern.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

Glad to know that you finally have a diagnosis with a good prognosis! It's truly inspiring to see the results of your Father's will to live. My dad was remarkable too and I use it everyday to keep myself focus on the true priorities in life. I'm glad you will get to still participate in sports especially since it is so important to you. Don't be nervous, just let the experts do their thing!!! Have a great week!
