Friends Battle With Cancer

If you remember from last year my friend Melissa was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and had to under go a rather serious procedure to  have her thyroid removed and hopefully remove the cancer entirely, in addition to have a future radiation treatment. Well she had the surgery and it went well, she still has to do the radiation treatment. However Melissa had a history of anxiety and since being diagnosed with cancer it only intensitfied, she became quite paranoid that everything going on with her body might mean she is dying was new illness or cancer. It mostly turned to be nothing. She did have some complications post-procedure though,  a blood clot being the most serious.

Recently unfortunately she got diagnosed with another form of cancer, lymphoma which effects the the blood. It was ust was discovered this year, her doctors are hopeful that they can take care off it along with any remaining cancer from her thyroid with radiation which she still has to get  treatment for and is comin…

Gym Delay

I've yet to make it to the gym. My friend has been working a lot. He is actually working too much, so much so it is causing problems with his relationship with his girlfriend. As for me, I had a suspicion I should not rely on him to much for going to the gym, in fact, I'm pretty sure for the first time in our friendship I'm below his weight (this also marks the first time of any friend for that matter) but he has actually been putting on weight lately. Anyways I'm going to have to figure out an alternative to the gym, or maybe look into getting my very own membership. I was excited about the prospects about what the gym could do for me, but the issue was I was putting my eggs into someone else's basket who isn't serious about weightloss. I'm looking into my options.

Visual Aid - Progression

Remember this? It's been updated accordingly. It was actually mentioned the first time I posted this that I should  consider redoing it with my original weight of 535. I considered it for a bit and decided I would rather not. Im not in a good place about being out of the 500s, mostly because the 500s and 400s have felt the same.

Super Bowl, Some Other Stuff, and Weight

It's the daynow a couple days after the Super Bowl, my friend had his annual party, and I again attended. This year there was a lot more food and pop on the menu (I stuck to water), I had some cheese dip, some chili dip, some quesadillas, and some boneless bbq chicken things. When I got full I was done for the night. I ate breakfast that morning and saved roomed the the days festivities.

My friend got a new car. It wasn't too long ago, like just a year ago that he got the SUV the he has had, the Ford Edge. Now he has Ford Focus 2016. When I found out he was switching from an SUV to a regular car I got little anxious,the idea of having to cramp inside a smaller vehicle  wasn't at all appealing. Ive had so many, bad, and awkward experiences with cars because of my weight throughout my life I couldn't help but envision something from the past repeating.  The new Focus was surprisingly roomy. Driving in cars with no discomfort, this isn't something I'm used to yet.…
