Weight loss and Surgery

I went this morning to talk to my surgeon regarding my thyroid.  He said that twice now cells and fluid have been removed and have tested normal.  However, the size and shape of the nodules (2) leaves him and the radiologist to conclude the nodules need to be removed.  So... Monday morning the 25th I will have surgery around 10:30 a.m..  I will stay Monday night and come home Tuesday. 
I had a feeling that this was not going to be something that could be watched the next years.  I actually told him, "if there is any doubt then lets remove anything, because if anything could go wrong it has this year, so let's eliminate any surprises and do what you feel needs to be done".

I forgot, also yesterday was my Weight Watchers weigh in.  I lost 1.6 pounds bringing my total weight loss to 9.4 pounds.  Far from what I expected.  I am hoping things will settle down with my health issues and Bill and I can start walking again.  Even if I "stroll" while Bill walks.  I just need to move.  With the holidays coming and cold weather comfort food cravings showing up, it won't be easy.  But I have to be determined.  If I have moments of failure, I have to make myself get back on track.  I need to have a quiet moment to sit down and make a monthly weight loss goal for myself.  Then I can tell week by week how I will do.
