Well the good news is that I have kept all the weight off that I lost while I was sick. The bad news is I haven't lost any more weight no matter how hard I tried. I am very frustrated.

Tonight was the season finale of the biggest loser. I was supposed to be on this season. The bad news is I felt a twinge of bitterness and jealousy. The good news is a woman finally won! Go Ali! You look hot!!!

More news: I don't have cancer. The bad news: I have endometerial hyperplasia. I have an increased risk of endometerial cancer. I have to keep going back for biopsies. I have an appointment with an endocrinologist. I hope they can help. I feel like my female parts have betrayed me in so many ways. Why can't they do what they are supposed to do?


  1. Wow! I just realized our start weights are similiar. Mine was 361.2.

    I'm so happy that Ali won!!! Finally!!!!!!

    It's good that you don't have cancer. But it stinks that you have to keep going back for biopsies. :(

  2. I'm sorry to hear that. Endometrial hyperplasia (thickening of the uterine lining) is treatable, usually with progesterone or other hormones to regulate your period. It's rather unusual that you'd have it at your age (I'm nearer to 50, and have had problems with it for about 8 years) and it's also related to weight, so as you lose weight, you will likely see thinning in your endometrial lining. (due to estrogen changes as your weight changes)

    Those of us who have endometrial hyperplasia do keep an eye on it, BECAUSE of the increased risk of cancer. I've been having regular biopsies and have been absolutely fine, and my most recent ultrasounds show some decreases in my endometrial thickness.

    While a diagnosis relating to fertility issues can be alarming, it's something that can be totally reversed. Chin up! I have absolute faith that between the doctors and your dedication to your health and weight loss that you'll be fine :)

  3. Sorry...things seem to really not be going your way. Sometimes when things are overwhelming, finding something that you can fully focus on and control (i.e. your diet and exercise) can give you the mental health to get you through the tough times. Good luck with everything and don't give up on your goals!

  4. So glad that you are back and feeling better!

  5. I wast thinking about you while watching the finale.

    I'm so glad to hear it isn't cancer and that you've found you need to keep an eye on it. Knowledge is power.

  6. My DVR managed to miss taping the finale, darn it! Glad to see Ali won though.

    Sorry to hear about your diagnosis, good luck with your appointment.

  7. Good question! My female parts are after revenge it seems!

  8. Sorry you have been going through such a hard time lately. Try to focus on the upside of the roller coaster of life although I know it is hard to do when you are dealing with serious issues.

    I thought of you when I was watching the BL finale. You could look even hotter than Ali. She is my hero though for being the first woman to win. I always thought it was unfair to compete with guys but she proved anything is possible.

    Let's just focus on eating better and moving more most of the time and see if we can both break out of our body armor and start feeling good about life no matter what it throws at you.

    Hang in there :)

  9. Hi,

    I just found you. I am also on the weight loss journey. It can be very frustrating. I am sorry to hear about your health. I have been through the same thing. I had severe endometriosis, fibroids and tumors in my uterus, and cysts in both ovaries. I eventually found out that I did have early stage cancer and had to get a total hysterectomy & oopherectomy.

    This is where all of my weight problems began. Before I was always very fit and skinny. Seems like nothing I do now helps! Damn hormones!

    I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Any of the female problems can be very painful and cause havok on the body. I am glad to here it's not cancer, and I am wishing you the best.

    Take care,
