Well now I know why I have gained so much weight.

Tuesday, September 02, 2014

These past few days I have done what I used to do, sit around and hangout with my guy watching movies and we ordered out pizza for lunch one day. I didn't realize just how inactive I have been. I have been wearing my fit bit and the amount of activity I had the last two days was just pathetic. Before I also would have snacked all day and not have recorded anything I ate. I now see why the weight has just piled on.

I was pushed down from the cancer, the surgery, the chemo, and the radiation and felt like I couldn't get back up. Everything changed. I was sick and I was tired and my whole body changed. I am doing my best to get back up. To be the person I want to be and that I feel I am on the inside. I am sick of hiding from people I used to work with and being quiet. I want to be me again.

I feel as though I have taken some great steps this past month. Lost 10 pounds in less than a month. There has been progress I guess I will be scared once I hit that plateau which I know will happen. But I have to say that I am very happy to be doing more and I am beginning to feel more like the person I was before I was diagnosed with cancer.

Here is hoping to a great month with more progress.

    You have been through a lot! It is important to keep things in perspective as well as ensuring you don't over do things either. You are doing amazingly well. God.....I certainly can't keep up with the mileage you are doing girl!

I certainly can't give all sorts of advice I have to get myself back to a good place. HOWEVER I do feel that it is better to go and steady and listen to our bodies, opposed to going all gung-ho and then throwing in the towel. The all or nothing attitude so many of us have has to change. We need good health throughout our lives and the tools we use to keep it that way have to be used consistently. Take care of you! AND CONGRATS on your 3.5 weight loss this weak teamie! emoticon emoticon

    Wishing you a great month!

You are right, all those things take a toll on the body, and it does take time to bounce back, so don't be too hard on yourself. emoticon
