I have been going down hill for almost a month now and it is time to stop. I am DONE and will not loose anymore of my life to this chemo. I have lost the ability to do everything that I was and that is not right. I will not continue on this road and I am starting NOW to take my control back. I hate to loose control of my life and I have so it has to stop. I can understand why people give up under treatment but that is not an option for me. I will never give up. Fight forever never stop.

I realized a good way to keep yourself exercising and eating healthy - and that's to do everything as if you've already reached your weight loss goal!
When you lose weight, your stomach shrinks along with you, making you feel full faster. Because you know this - and you don't want to stretch out your stomach - you are compelled to eat less. With this kind of mindset, you're eating less. This is a method of portion control.
I have already lost a few pounds by doing this! You can, too!
Remember it takes about 10 minutes for your stomach to tell your brain you're not hungry anymore!
When you start eating more vegetables, especially more of the leafy green kind, and most especially if you never really ate that many before, TAKE BEANO (or something similar). Otherwise, you may end up with really bad gas (and the bloating and cramps that go with it).
Taking something to help prevent the gas ensures that you won't give up on eating more vegetables right after you start.
