Transformation Tuesday

#TransformationTuesday goes out to this beautiful lady, Trina Davis!   40 lbs gone!  Read more about her story below:

"I have started my weight loss journey a little of a year ago. I was so fed up and disgusted with myself to allow myself to get this way. I started to gain weight after I have my thyroid removed in 2009 (due to health reasons) I quickly became depressed and just gave up on myself. Never realizing how much weight I was putting on and started to lose all what lil bit of energy I had. I knew it was time to do something about it. I was on Facebook and came across the 21 day fix So I started researching it. I quickly realized how many of my friends were doing it and I messaged them and they introduced me to a coach. I talked with the coach for awhile and in my head I'm thinking yeah right this does not work like they say it does. No program is this good for that price. So I researched it for awhile and I messaged my coach back and ordered my package. So while I was waiting for my package to come I quickly started to make up every reason possible NOT to do it. I was thinking of every excuses to send it back to get my refund and just continue to be lazy. I kept this up until the day my package arrived and I started to feel very overwhelmed. So I sat down for a minute staring at my package and it sat in the same spot untouched for 2 days. After the 3rd day I finally opened it up and started to read everything and I quickly became interested init. I said to myself I can do this its 21days it can't be that hard.. Well I was wrong it wasn't as easy as I thought it was going to be. I started to do my workouts and realized I wasn't able to do most of the 30min exercise. I was so embarrassed I never knew how out of shape I really was. So I I started to look up healthy recipes for meals and I went to the grocery store and bought healthy food. I came home and threw out all of the unhealthy food that I had and said to myself I can do this its 21days. Well my first week my husband did my workouts with me to help motivate me to wanna do them. After the 9th day I found that I was really starting to like how I was starting to feel. I was having more energy I wasnt craving any sweets I was staying full longer and my stomach wasn't upset and bloated feeling all the time. I was starting to see my results and I my friends started to compliment me on losing weight. I started to gain so much confidence in myself. I was loving the way my body was changing. I still to this day am no where near my goal but I'm still striving to get there. I can honestly say starting this diet has changed my life :) :D"

Post-Op and Recovery Update

Tomorrow will be one month since the removal of the GIST (Gastro-intestinal stromal tumor) in the lining of my stomach.  Quite a few people have been reaching out to see how I've been feeling and for an update on what's next. First off, the surgery went well.  My surgeon only had to make one incision in the mid-line of my abdomen, because as he started to cut, the tumor was visible immediately.  He said I was a "surgeons dream" since there wasn't much to cut through!  My pain was controlled well post-op and I did not have near as much nausea from the pain meds as I did from the lung biopsy.  They made sure to stay on top of giving me anti-nausea meds and even put a scopolamine patch behind my ear pre-op.  I stayed in the hospital for two nights and then was able to go home.  Recovery went well with no complications.  Over the last month, I've had a lot of emotional ups and downs.  Waiting on the results from the pathology on the tumor was difficult.  O

Surgery Update

If you read my last blog post, I left off with that I was home from my lung biopsy recovering and that the preliminary results showed up as "Organizing Pneumonia".  They did confirm that on the pathology, so my lungs are cancer free!  Praise God! I met with my Surgical Oncologist, Dr. Jeffery  Hardacre which let me tell you is one amazing man.  Not only does he seem highly qualified to care for me, but he has an incredible bedside manner.  He took his time to explain everything to my husband and I and answered all of our crazy questions.  I feel very confident in his hands and he seems to be very optimistic about things.   I am scheduled to go into surgery with him tomorrow for the removal of the gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST).  If you haven't heard of this type of tumor, it's not your typical "stomach cancer".  Stomach cancer actually grows inside your stomach and could be a lot worse than a GIST.  This tumor is in the "wall/lining" of

Make Every Day Count

I woke up Tuesday June 18th of this year not feeling right.     Every time I stood up I felt light headed and nauseous. I thought to myself, “here comes baby number 3” and laid back down in bed.     If you know me well, then you know I sent my husband to the store to get a pregnancy test.     I am always taking those things with the slightest inkling that I might be pregnant.     When I saw the test was negative I was surprised.     As the day went on I became more light headed, and my heart was racing just walking from room to room.     This was so far from my norm, so I decided to go to the emergency room.     The doctors ran a few different tests and found that my hemoglobin level was 8.1.    For those of you who don’t know what hemoglobin is - it is the oxygen carrying component of red blood cells. The normal range for a female is 12-15.    This explained my symptoms, but we weren’t sure of the exact cause.    You also don’t normally get a blood transfusion until your leve
