Thankful for life!

To say I have had a rough few months would be understating things.   It has been an emotional rollercoaster.  If you read my blog (barren as it may be the past 6 months) you know some of what has happened in my life.    Recently I landed in the ER with an increased heart rate and paliptations.   After the docs ruled out all the scary stuff they sent me home with a halter monitor for 48 hours.   In the end my heart is fine but I need to decrease my stress level, lose weight, exercise, drink a whole lot more water (just the intake of liquids while in the ER lowered my heart rate to under 100 so I was very dehydrated) and my doc has prescribed me a very very low dose of some meds to help me relax.   This was last week.   

This week I had to have a follow up on an xray I had during a dental exam.  They needed to rule out cancer.   Today I met with the oral surgeon and after a 3d xray things look good.   I have to have a follow up in 10 months to be sure it doesn't get bigger  but it looks like it is just calcium deposits due to an infection or trauma when my wisdom tooth was removed.   I feel very thankful!!!!

I am still waiting on the ovarian cyst issue...I will know more in January.   I am so done with worrying and stressing over things.   I am ready to live again!   I am also ready to listen to my body and give it what it needs.  I am so happy to report that the weight I lost (a whole 9 pounds) months ago has remained off.   I have about 91 more to go.   So this journey is picking up where I left it.   I am feeling grateful that I have the ability to decide to go on this journey again.   Nothing is stopping me but me...so here we go again. What a great opportunity!

My huge goal is about 90 pounds too, but I knew I could never do it. So I've just been loosing 5 pounds at a time. And its working because I've lost 55 pounds. Work small and it will build up. I just followed you on Pinterest. I have a board called "Creating a Better Me." I have found tons of inspirational posters that help me so much. My favorite is "Be the girl you were too lazy to be yesterday." Good luck and I hope you feel better soon.
