Oh Lynda what a great post! I can identify with your situation. This is a " stop the world so I can step off" moment. I know that you'll find your footing pretty soon! When moments like this happen ...look back and see what all you've overcome.. This will pass ..just take a deep breath. I'm in the same situation as my Mom went to the hospital while I was on vaca and then went to physical rehab for 20 days, She is doing very well but for an only child, it sent me in to a tailspin. I've LET myself eat but also signed up for Eat, Drink & Be next week to get back on track. We've come too far to be stopped!

Good luck. Hang in there. As an introvert, I can totally understand this! Take time for yourself!!

HapiCampr continue to be a hero to me. Your determination to find the right prescription for yourself to be the most healthy you is wonderful. I also love that you share your process and progress with all of us. Cheers my friend!


Lynda, you continue to inspire me! I've got to investigate carb cycle! I'm going to join the new Eat, Drink & be slim. Would love it if you were there, too. That is ... If you haven' t met your goal yet. I was on vaca and my Mom is sick so I haven't been as active on DB .... But still making goals in Transformer! Best of luck, and you do keep inspiring me!

Great post! I've been thinking of NSVs this week also. (FYI - I saw "NSV" in a Facebook page last week and had to google it. LOL!) This morning I was able to lift myself out of the bathtub without getting onto my knees first. Just put hands on the side of the tub and stand up. But the one NSV I'm looking forward to.... to cross my legs again! I just wrote my own blog post about NSVs. Thanks for the inspiration. I don't want to forget how good these feel.


Fantastic post! Congratulations!
This is about more than me!

My younger sister (34) is going through stage 3 breast cancer. She ended up going the hat route. One of her favorites was a reggae rasta hat complete with dreds. Totally not her style - but it made her feel so much better.

Do what makes you feel good and gives you the confidence to meet this challenge head on! Go for it and know that everyone around you is cheering you on! Like my sister said when she finished 16 weeks of chemo last month - "Screw cancer, I survived AND BEAT Chemo!"

She's starting her radiation next week - her plan is to have this beat by the end of the year. She started in November last year.

YOU CAN DO IT!! When I see someone with cancer, I don't think "cancer", I think rock star!

HI! I'm just seeing this...but I am a volunteer with the American Cancer Society. Most of the locations have a room where you can try on wigs that they give to cancer patients. Here in Palm Beach County it is very nice. Just a thought. It is one of the things they do with the money they raise. I love how it gives back to the community. They also provide rides and have a lot of great information. Just a thought. You may want to check out your ACS location. AND also and more are a huge inspiration...after reading your story I know I can reach my will kick cancer's butt and look great doing it! So glad things are going better this time (I read another post)'ve got this for you and your family. Never forget how huge of an inspiration you are!

I'm not a fan of running either. I will put my thinking cap back on. Over the last few months we have learned that we can do more than we thought possible so whatever goal you settle on - you will meet.

You are doing awesome!

Oh I'm so sorry you had those issues! And I wonder about the headache. Are you a caffeine drinker? It's ok to keep in your tea or coffee -- I only give up caffeine before race - not for "detox." And the good news is that if you made it through day 1, it only gets easier!!

@ Red, it's a link Teresa posted in our Eat, Drink & Be Skinny game:

Lynda, I bought ingredients to try some of the recipes. Thanks for the tips.

Haven't gotten my new glasses: What does the sign say by kitty? He's adorable, BTW.
Next time, could I get that on a salad plate?
