Transformation

Published May 4, 2018 by lynn k scott

Since giving up Facebook, I have gotten more into InstaGram.  Looking through all the pictures, I stumbled upon pictures of me before I got sick and before all the weight loss.  Every time I see those old photos.  I was my heaviest in 2013 (when my mother suddenly passed away).  It was around that time I had just begun a gluten-free diet. IMG_20180504_111055_175.jpg

I walk as my primary form of exercise and it’s not as often as I would like.  Now that chemo is done, I will resume walking.  I do not want to put on all the weight I have lost.

While diet change and walking do count toward a bit of the weight loss, mostly illness has been the primary factor.  I went through a lot with the Celiac’s and a then the tumor that grew for two years before I could get the medical world to believe it wasn’t an ulcer and finally treated me.

If I had to have cancer, at least a massive weight loss was the silver lining.  I don’t often share photos of myself (and I rarely smile in them).  Here are some that show my transformation.  I did cut my hair to a pixie cut when I was diagnosed.  It was the only thing in my life I could control.  I’m actually happy with it.  Super easy to maintain and color (because I will not go gracefully into that grey night).
