Summer did not go as planned for me. I spent it dealing with my dad's cancer and treatment, and then my own surgery. I am not yet allowed to work out, but I am ready to get back in a healthy frame of mind and get moving on my goals. My dad is almost out of the woods, for which I am so grateful and relieved. It was frightening to see him go through the suffering of the radiation treatments and I am so glad his prognosis is good and he is recovering so well.
My surgery should deal with the issues I have had maintaining my pregnancies, so next time around I should be able to carry to term (God willing). With all that we have gone through to figure out what was causing all these miscarriages, I don't want to risk anything. So this time I will get fit and ready for my next pregnancy. I will reach my goal of 145lbs and then begin to try again. We are not allowed to try for two months, so that gives me a good head start on weight loss and fitness. Here I go again, but with more steady determination and a strong reason for making things happen.
