Breast MRI today

My annual mammo revealed a whole slew of cysts that LOOK benign, so my doctor ordered this test. He promised to call me on Monday and let me know what we do next...most likely a biopsy to make sure of what's in there.
I already told him that if anything looks bad, I want to just go for the second mastectomy -- I dread the idea of going through all that cancer treatment again. My daughter's big Hawaii wedding is next year and I'd hate to be in chemo recovery for that.

Did you say maintenance?

I became motivated to work at weight loss for my daughter's wedding. It was supposed to be in Hawaii in June. I was already low-carbing, and I added in more intense exercise (that means upping the resistance on my recumbent bike). I've lost 13 pounds, which isn't bad for a 5'2" 70-year-old. Now I'm at a good weight for me and most of my pudgy belly is gone.

Well, daughter just told me the wedding might be postponed for a YEAR. I get it, in fact, I was never sure the timing was going to work, but this means I have to stay strong for a loooong time. The clothes I've already bought or made will have to fit me just right in a YEAR.
