Goin2Hawaii's Journal, 01 April 2013

In the past 12 months ...
My mother, cousin and I have battled breast cancer and won. It's been quite a journey. I've not been allowed to "diet" or try in any way to lose weight or even exercise. Energy is still running low, but recovery is going well. I'm anemic, receiving monthly injections of Lupron ($600 each for 6 months) and waiting to be taken off Tamoxifen and put on Arimidex. I'm also starting herbal treatments for menopause today.

My oncologist has cleared me to walk 30 minutes/day, 5 days a week...no more, no less - unless I develop blood clots. ((Did I mention that I've gained 15# since March 1st due to the Tamoxifen?!!!?))

I have 6 months until I can have my second surgery (and stop the injections). I want to use this time to lose as much weight as I can. So I'm taking a break from Facebook and focusing on my health, family, education and gardens.
300.0 lb Lost so far: 0 lb.    Still to go: 115.0 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.
