The easiest way to avoid regrets is to ask yourself this question, "If not now, when?" It's a powerful way to put life and our decisions about how we spend our time into perspective"
Saturday morning weigh in...
Posted by Cindy on 11/17/2018, 11:20 pm
This morning the scale registered a .2 pound gain. I am not concerned as last night my hand fell asleep while I was watching tv, and when I shook my hand to wake it up, my wedding band flew off my hand and landed across the room. Ken told me last night that Iím going to have to get my rings sized, and this morning, my rings were snug. I am thinking I have some water weight. This will pass. |
Our Weight Watcher meeting was about being mindful in our eating and I have to say I think that is the biggest key to me staying with this program so long. Actually paying attention to what I am putting in my mouth makes a difference!
I am having a colonoscopy on Monday. Itís been five years since my last one. Never crazy about getting one, but know they are important. The prep is the worst part! I will start that at 4 pm tomorrow. I have to check in at the endoscopy center at 7:30 Monday morning. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers!
Very necessary test.....

The prep is the worst. I sleep right through the procedure. You can do this Sue! Call your dr and get one set up. Early detection is so important! |

The prep is definitely the worst part of it! Is there a reason you have to have it every 5 instead of 10? |
My mom and sister...

Have had a history of polyps, and my brother had colon cancer so they want me coming in every five years. I have had 2 before with no sign of polyps. Iím hoping it stays the same this time. My best friend Kim had colon cancer as well, but they caught it in the early stages, so she reminds me all the time too how important early detection is!|
Thoughts and prayers en route

I had colon cancer at 53. |
Had I had a colonoscopy
at 50 (as is recommended) I would never have had cancer.
As it is they caught it early. I had surgery with a temporary illiostomy but no chemo or radiation.
That was over 9 years ago.
Yep...good test to have : )
My best friend...

Had colon cancer that was detected early as well! How often do you have to go back in for follow up colonoscopies? I think she goes in every 5 years. I am so glad they caught yours early too! |
yes...in the beginning

I had more but after them all being negative the next on is in 5 years which for me will be 2020. |
Glad to hear about another success story!
God bless her : )
