Weigh In Wednesday - Week 17

I eeeked out a two pound loss this week.

I know some of you guys don't follow me on Instagram so I wanted to let you know about what I wrote over there.  I've been having some female problems that have gotten worse over the past year or so.  I had my yearly physical at the GYN and he's recommending hysterectomy.  I was very emotional at the doctor's office but now that I've thought about it for a while I feel like this a smart option for me.  I'm in a terrible amount of pain during my periods.  And lately I've been having trouble days leading up to my period and during ovulation time.  He said my uterus was quite large and it shouldn't be.  Normal uteruses are the size of a small apple and mine is the size of a cantaloupe.

This will be a slow process, I don't even go back until mid February for an ultrasound to measure my fibroids.  They also took some blood yesterday, I think he was worried about anemia.  Now that the initial shock has set in, I'm mostly worried about the surgery part.  I've already had 2 surgeries that will be very similar and I know how much it sucks.  That said, there's isn't much I can do, I will ask all the questions I can to ease myself but I've come to know often they don't know what they are dealing with until they get in there.  In times like this I often find comfort in the words, "this too shall pass."  You can go through the suckiest thing but it will pass, one day it's part of your past, and you move on.


  1. Wow! You are doing an awesome job with this weight loss journey! Your will power and strength are inspiring. Thanks so much for sharing. I'm sorry to hear about your medical issues and the surgery you are facing. I had the same condition several years ago and I felt so much better after the surgery. Wishing you the best.
