Stay Strong

I started getting heavy at 40. I got breast cancer and I did what I needed to do. I quit smoking. 20 pounds plus there. The chemo, for some reason made me gain weight and not lose weight. I added another 20 pounds I would say. The weight just stayed on and then I added to it.

I think I hurt myself because I have always skipped meals. I never fed my metabolism. I have always been a pretty healthy eater when it comes to food choices. In fact I have to force myself to eat... and snacks...I have to remember to snack.
I have now added another problem, menopause. I have been in menopause for almost 3 years and it has made it doubly difficult to lose weight.
Sometimes I feel like I am fighting a loosing battle.
What keeps me going is that I want to be small again. End of story. Skinny and healthy as hell. I want to look in the mirror and say "Damn Girl, you are looking good."
I try to constantly to think about everything I am putting in my mouth. I exercise everyday except Sunday. Sunday is my day of rest...for everything. No exercise, except walking my dogs. If I am gonna have a splurge day, it's Sunday. Maybe an Ice Cream Cone ( I usually get frozen yogurt) but it's still good. My favorite is having a Frozen New York Peppermint Paddy. Yum, Yum!!

Thank you so much for your positive words on my blog post! Sometimes we just need someone else for some perspective on the bigger picture. Also, I saw you live in Carmel - I'm in Westfield, small world :)
