I've haven't been too serious with the diet the past few weeks. Eating bad on the weekends and getting back to even during the week only to eat bad again that weekend. Been getting to around 253 every Friday then 260 on Monday then repeat.
Well now I've been diagnosed with tongue cancer and the doc told me last week to get off the low carb diet and basically eat all I could leading up to the surgery this coming Monday. He said between the surgery, the recovery from it, and the radiation treatment that I would lose 30-40 lbs. he sai he didn't want my body depleted of carbs or calories going into this.
So with that said, I've been eating carbs and drinking good beer since he told me that last Wednesday.
I don't dip or smoke and am only 34 so it came as a surprise when the biopsy of the never ending ulcer came back as malignant.
The PET scan Friday showed it hasn't spread past the tongue and I caught it early so the docs and I are confident we are gonna beat this thing and move on.
ETA: so hopefully when I report back again, I will be near my goal weight of 230 just not the way I intended to get there.
