Journey to health

I have been struggling with my weight for most of my adult life. Last year I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 43 and that was a real wake-up call. A further diagnosis of a BRCA 1 mutation, meaning that I have the breast and ovarian cancer gene, meant a year of chemo and multiple prophylactic surgeries to reduce my risk of another cancer diagnosis.

The last surgery (God willing) was at the end of October and now I am getting on track to a healthier way of living. ...
I have been struggling with my weight for most of my adult life. Last year I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 43 and that was a real wake-up call. A further diagnosis of a BRCA 1 mutation, meaning that I have the breast and ovarian cancer gene, meant a year of chemo and multiple prophylactic surgeries to reduce my risk of another cancer diagnosis.

The last surgery (God willing) was at the end of October and now I am getting on track to a healthier way of living. It means a weight loss of over 100 pounds and regular exercise. It means sticking to a life style change and not "dieting" and then gaining it all back. I have lost 120 pounds once before but this time it needs to stay off and I am the only one who can make that happen. Nobody else puts the food in my mouth - that's all me. So I am taking responsibility and taking charge.
