Hi Everyone! I Missed You All!

Hi to my sweet JUDDD BUDDs!

I'm back!!! LOL. It's been a gruelling almost 3 years now and I'm still stuck in the middle of reconstructive surgery for the breast cancer. It's been brutal but I won't bore you with details. I had been maintaining my almost 100 lb weight loss until after this second surgery. It threw me totally off track and my body still hasn't forgiven me for it. All this heartache cuz I wanted a pair of shiny new non-droopy headlamps that aren't out to kill me.

Sheeeesh!

I hope you won't mind if I rejoin the party. I don't know that I will be here every day. My energy ebbs and flows so badly still that some days are tough to just brush my teeth! But it's time to get serious about taking off the post surgery weight and get my lymphedema in the left arm corralled!

Good to be back. JUDDD is the way to go!

Thanks ladies. Huge hugs right back at ya!!!

I wish I could claim 100lbs. But now I can only claim 65 of those lost pounds. About 10lbs is in fluid in my left arm but I can't count that.

Keira's Mommy - unfortunantly I only have the "sockets" and placeholders in until November when I can schedule either removing them altogether or continuing with the shiny new lamps. They are called expanders and I know they were invented by some sadistic sob, because they are hell on earth to anyone I've ever talked to about them. :-/ Sorry for whining!

Ok, so how is everyone doing lately??? Successes, challenges, the whole ball of wax!!!

Pami thanks for joing my blog! Welcome! Also, I'm maybe gonna be started a blog just for DDs and alternate day fasting talk, and keep FCC as just for UD - standard run of the mill low carb.

Is anyone here doing LC JUDDD?

Good to see you!

You are doing great with all you've been through!

I don't post as much as I used to; I just can't focus on it as well after all I've been through. Focus is a big problem for me now. Ah well, we do the best we can.

I'm sure they were invented by a MAN! I pray you are cancer free and for your continued healing. What has gone up, WILL COME back down. Stay the coarse and jump back here. We all welcome you. I am sorry for your pain and struggles!
