Getting back on track

Rate this Entry
Since getting back on track I lost 3.2lbs.

I went for my annual check-up. I am happy to report that my AC1 and sugar levels still in normal ranges. My albumin/protein and most vitamin levels excellent. The only concern is my iron levels which are even lower than last year. My doctor has recommended that I do an iron iv drip since I am not absorbing iron.

I have a diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound today. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. Hopefully itís nothing, but I have a cyst on my left breast.

I complete my summer classes today and I have two finals to turn in by this evening.

Overall, I am reminded that I am in a much better place than I was three years ago, with the sleeve I have some control over my health. I just have to keep practicing the tools to continue on my health and weight goals and stay there.

For my 50th birthday I did a photo shoot and I love this photo! It reminded me of a similar one someone took of me when I was 18 years old. That same spirit abides in me.

    I love your photos!!! and you look wonderful!!

    I'm not allowed to do the iron infusion (allergies), I hope it will help you. Seems it's the only thing really working on the long run..

    Good luck for the finals!! XOXO

    Great photos.
    Hope all good with the mammogram.
    I had one on Monday and the radiographer was interested in how much weight I had lost. She could obviously tell from the previous x-ray.
    Keep up the good work :-)

    Yeah, the first few mammograms post weight loss are chatty sessions.
