I've been looking through my page and progress (or lack thereof) over my years at Sparkpeople. I am constantly sending people to this site and don't follow it myself. No wonder it took colon cancer to jump start my weight loss. I don't want to sound flip or off handed about the big C, I'm just trying to take all situations of my life and make the most of them.
For the first time since my twins were born, I am no longer in the obese category, but I'm still no where near where I want to be. I know the weight I lost wasn't done in the healthiest way, but it's not like I choose to do it that way. So, now that I'm done with chemo/radiation, what do I do? I know I'm going to put back on some of the weight I've lost, I've already put almost 7 back on, but that's because I'm actually eating.
How do I learn to eat healthy? How do I take where I am today and move forward?
I still have so many unknowns in my life, I feel the need to be able to control something.
I can control the food that I put into my body. I can choose foods that promote health. I can choose to get off the couch and stop feeling sorry for myself. I can choose to enjoy life and those I share it with.
I can choose life and all the wonders it includes.
