The test results were good! Or as good as they can get - the nodule is unchanged and unspecified and my doctor says that's good, no cancer. Follow up in 6 months. Sooooo....
With all that behind me and the future looking better I'm getting started on my way to good health! I will be eating right, exercising, not smoking - did I mention that it has been 56 days since I had a cigarette? - and doing better on everything. I've managed to "lose myself" and I'm going to find me again. I know I'm in there, just gotta get me back out.
So, I will lose 50 pounds, yes 50! I will eat healthy and control my diabetes. I will, for this week, walk on the treadmill for 10 minutes every day and dance for 20 minutes every day. That's my cardio work out. I will drink at least one bottle of water every day (hey, that's a lot for me) and cut back on my coffee. I won't stop by McDonalds and get sweet tea daily - if I go I will get unsweet tea.
There is a person on the Quitnet that is an inspiration to me. Her screen name on the quit CarlyKicksButts and she is just amazing! I've been reading her blog http://thenextrightchoice.blogspot.com/ and the way she is doing things and it has given me some ideas. I know that I can do this and I will. Her blog is about the "next right choice" and that's what getting healthy is about - making the next right choice.
