Mammogram Monday!

Where was I last Monday - instead of weighing in and writing a blog post I was having my boob squished in a vice. Yep. 

Things are A OK, but it was the result of a lump found in a routine breast exam. Ladies - check yourself before you wreck yourself - do self exams and keep up with yearly well-woman checkups with your doctor. It might save your life!

I was super lucky, but many women find out they have breast cancer thanks to this important (albeit uncomfortable) exam. Give a woman in need a free mammogram by clickty clicking on The Breast Cancer site. Yes it's legit

On a weight loss note: I am about the same as last weigh in - I gained a few ounces but nothing major. Full Weigh in Monday - the last of August - next week!

So happy everything is okay! And thanks for the important reminder. I know several people who have gotten breast cancer at a VERY young age (late 20s, early 30s) so it's never to early to learn how and get in the habit of self exams!

I'm glad you're ok! I've never had a mammogram, I've always suspected that I don't have enough boobs to squish.... I wonder if the machine has a small boob fitting for members of the IBTC? Anyway my wonderings aside, yay for you and healthy boobs!

Heck yes ladies - checking early is apparently the key to fighting like hell on breast cancer; I was also told that it is good to get a baseline reading in your 30s just in case!

And Amanda - I am also a card carrying member of the IBTC!! YAY!
