Good news on Tony's job!

I see myself thinner than I am until I have to be shocked at something I don't ordinarily look in.

Except for clothing - I still think it is weird to buy smaller sizes. I can't explain why my mind doesn't match things up.

I'm sure you will run an extra mile to get the muffin off. It has to be better than cake!

Have a good day. I hope the weather has calmed down. I have never experienced weather like you have there and plan on missing the experience!

Hugs

That sounds more like a manual step counter. I have a digital pedometer. You don't do anything except wear it. It rolls over at noon and starts your step count again for the day and keeps track of it all week. This is the exact one: Amazon.com: Ozeri 4x3razor Digital Pocket 3D Pedometer with...Amazon.com: Ozeri 4x3razor Digital Pocket 3D Pedometer with...

Yes I was good as gold today I am pretty proud of my 5:00 workouts, man it is tough but I am at least getting that in, and now the bootcamp Saturday and bike ride Sunday so maybe something will snowball, I can tell just getting back to it in the last 6 weeks, my arms are getting more toned again, I was getting pretty spongy, LOL!!!!! I am just going to work out like a maniac try to keep eating well 95% of the time and hope for the best! I have so much with this new job I cant be all focused on my weight. Loving the job though so that is good, the one gal is off next week so I will get to do more, I did my first auto quote, she had 3 accidents she forgot to mention : LOL So no deal, but at least it was good practice with the youngster!!!!

MARTINI_I MUST TYPE IN BOLD, I AM SO PROUD OF YOU, ONCE YOU START WALKING OR ZUMBAING YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE IT, YOU ARE GOING TO FEEL GOOD MENTALLY AND IT IS GOING TO KEEP YOU ON TRACK WITH THE EATING! GO SHAKE THAT BOOTY IN ZUMBA, IF YOU LIKE TO DANCE IT WILL NOT FEEL LIKE WORK, I AM TOO UNCOORDINATED I got nothing in the dance or singing department!!!

YOU GO YOU LITTLE SHRINKY DINK I AM ROUTING FOR YOU!!!!
I have an idea why dont you start a little log on my thread for exercise, any extra thing you do walking, zumba, etc write it down here at the end of the day and then st the end of the week you can see all you did, you will feel good about yourself. One thing I do love the exercise there is something about it, but the solitude working up a sweat you can really focus, I love it

You might be sorry you asked about me. No, not really, but I have been in the hospital for the past week. When the third surgery was done on my elbow in Honolulu a lung X-ray was taken. The X-ray showed a spot that was not there during my physical in December. It was discovered I had lung cancer! It was in the upper right lobe of my right lung. That was removed last Thursday. It appears to be self contained and very early stage. I should not have to have any more treatments, thank God.

The cancer is a type that non-smoking females can get. I had never heard of it.

I still have a large drainage tube in that is painful. It might come out today, but probably not until tomorrow. I hope to be home by Friday.

I will be slowed down for another month or so while I heal from this. We are still working on getting more mobility in the hand and elbow - very slow. There are still more surgeries planned for the arm. I'll find out more about that next week.

I turned 70 in March. I had only been in the hospital to have my son. I have more than made up for it! My doctors are all wonderful and I have no complaints about my care. A higher order was definitely looking over me. If I had not been hit we would not have had a clue about the cancer until it was probably too late. I have no symptoms of ill health at all.

I suggest that people ask for a lung X-ray if they are not requested every so often. I worked in the school system for a long time, so was used to getting them.

I'm sure I will be fine and can get back to my fun life. I feel very lucky!

I have very little appetite, but am gaining weight with all of the meds I am on. It will be a while before they will let me get ino the pool. They weigh me every morning!

I start my day with my LCF's and will continue to do so

Hugs to ALL

Seabreezes..
I'm a lurker..been reading your story.
I'm so sorry this is happening to you
after all the other things you've been
thru/are going thru.

Your a great woman/fighter. Thinking on
the bright side. If it didn't happen might
not of found the cancer, which is a blessing.
Glad they got it all and no more treatments
for you on it. You have other things to go thru.

Are you in Honolulu or the mainland now
I know it's never easy to heal,
plus you have more surgery's to come.
But hope the scenery and people of Hawaii
make it a little easier.

THANKS AMBER!!!! I shall post something about my exercise here! I'll be too traumatized to keep putting zero...lol OFF MY BUTT I GO!!!

LOL 3 forgotten accidents. Poor Girl. That's why Im stuck with who I have now..lol If I had to recounts the last 3 years you would just hang up on me. LOL!

Thanks for the kind thoughts. I get to go home this morning - yay. I'll still need some pain pills, but not too many, I hope.

I have to walk everyday and work up to 3 miles a day for the rest of my life! If that is what it takes to get the lung better I think I can manage it!

Hugs to ALL

The leg is all healed. I won't get to the 3 mile mark for a while, will have to build up to that. I was able to do a mile on the treadmill before the surgery by holding onto the rails. My back does not like walking at all. The doc said walking in the pool will be fine, but can't get into the pool for a while yet, either.

Yes, living in warm weather is a real plus!

I am home now, too! YAY
