Good riddance 2016....
Saturday, December 31, 2016
The year of 2016 started off very badly with a blindsided health scare.....So groundhog day found me in the hospital having major surgery to remove a "very large" ovarian tumor & also an old fashion Hysterectomy(which means cut wide open & many months long recovery)!!!
The blessing out of all this was that some how I escaped a bad cancer outcome. My doctor was shocked & did several different tests to triple check. No cancer. God was very good. Already had enough to handle.
With the love of my hubby, who took great care of me, & my great friends who were by my side physically & emotional, the whole recovery went great! I was determined to go slow & get well/healthy alittle bit at a time. Always believe in baby steps for everything.
So with some other personal struggles that occurred, the trip to Disney with Tom's girls (my stepdaughters), their husbands, & all the grandkids was so much fun & uplifting.
Then the trip to Myrtle Beach & staying at the Beach/Ocean was tranquility for my soul. Was wonderful!!!!
With trying Weight Watchers & healthy eating, my weight loss journey was very successful with 19 pounds total lost!!!! My goal at the beginning was 25 but the recovery took longer which derailed the losing. But I got through it all. Feel better. However, have a long way to go - many more pounds to lose.
Looking forward to moving forward on my weight loss - another year to be a "loser"!!!!
When the bad occurred, it was so very bad. When the good occurred, it was awesome! I was blessed either way!
With being very positive person & believe that happiness/joy is in the everyday, I am able to handle any/every of life's curve balls coming at me!
In reflection of 2016, I am glad for each & every day! But happy that this year is finally behind me.
Am able to welcome in 2017 with a lot of hope, faith, positive emotions..... I choose to be me, strong, happy, & healthy!!!!
Good riddance 2016 - Howdy to the New Year....2017!!!
