No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
Has been MONTHS since my last post. And I am in need of getting back here regularly.
I haven't had a chance to read many blogs (recent circumstances I will explain) but at a quick glance I don't see many familiar faces.
Those of you who were active in the summer and Fall of 2012 may remember that my husband's brother was diagnosed with Kidney cancer and we were trying to help him and his wife through this. Monday, he lost his battle with cancer--wow was it an AWFUL few months for him...surgeries, treatments, and just downhill all the way Turned out to be not kidney cancer but a very rare Nerve Sarcoma--they removed a FOOTBALL sized tumor from his abdomen but it spread to his lungs, liver and bones within 6 weeks.(He had his only remaining kidney removed and was on dialysis). So my husband and I were the main support for them. My sister in law and I got VERY close even though we live a couple of states apart, so that was good. But really she was using me as her emotional diary daily, which is what she needed, but it drained me. I felt like I was going through it myself.
Funeral was yesterday. So sad.
So as far as MY health, Almost as soon has his problems got really bad, my diet went to just terrible. Not able (or willing) to engage in physical exercise or eat well. I will be getting on the scale Monday morning (certainly have gained at least 15+ pounds) and getting back in the 'saddle'. I know exactly what I need to do but will have to find the emotional and physical strength to DO it. One of my last conversations with my brother in law was about health and how he wanted us to take care of ourselves. So here I am.
