Nearly 4 months ago in January I had a shock, a wake up call if you like, my first wake up call of 2011
I sat in the doctor surgery and was told the heavy periods I was experiencing was probably brought on by my weight. It was the first time a doctor had said that to me, my weight was affecting my health. Up until then, although I was very over weight, I was medically fit. Blood pressure was fine, cholesterol was fine, I didn't have diabetes, my joints were holding up, it wasn't stopping me from doing anything I wanted to do. So why change?
But that day, it was the wake up call I needed and decided to do something about it. Within 3 days I had signed up to complete St Lukes Hospice 13 mile Midnight Walk and joined Slimming World, working on changing my diet & lifestyle forever. And while I worked on changing my lifestyle I went for tests and procedures and in March had a hysteroscopy with a procedure called Novasure. 1 week off work and I was back and well on my way to getting fit and continuing to lose the weight. What I didn't know what that the minor operation had probably saved me, early stage uterine cancer was diagnosed and a hysterectomy performed.
Fast forward to today, I am only post 7 weeks since the hysterectomy ........so why am I worrying and mithering about losing weight and a sponsored walk? I should just be concentrating on recuperating. I'm mithering because I said I would do it before I was diagnosed and I am not going to let a silly thing like a life changing event, plus major surgery get in the way!
