Battling the pounds.

Battling weight sucks. We all know that. I hate to say that it is no easier for my after having this diagnosis. One would think that I would be terrified into eating properly. Sometimes I am and sometimes I could care less about what I feel my body. But that feeling of despair after makes me upset with myself.

I am ALMOST to my pre-cancer weight (loved "pre-pregnancy weight" much better!!) which is still not healthy, and I still want to loose another 40-50 once I get there. But I find it really hard. My habits are slowly improving, and I am doing my best to eat well. It is rough though when some days I just want to nap and then by the time I am awake it is a little late for a healthy supper. I would never want a Nanny. I would want someone to clean my house for me and cook me and my family a healthy meal every night. That would be awesome. Then I could play with my kids and not worry about everything that I still need to try and get done in my days.

Having said all that, I am not giving up. I have worked out 6 days a week since January (minus a few here and there when I was sick) and even if I haven't lost much weight, I feel stronger and better than I have in a long time. The rest will happen when it does. And I just have to be happy with that.


  1. I hear ya sister!! I have worked out 4-6 days a week hard since christmas for a crappy 2 pounds! Only to gain it from one crap eating weekend. Nice... I was even watching what I ate...

    Just a simple tip, last week I switched to 6 small meals a day (Low carb, generally a small portion at dinner and breakie) and dropped 5 in a week. I usually do 7:30 am 1/4 - 1/4 cup cheerio with almond milk, work out, 10 am protein shake, 12pm light lunch, 2 pm Veggie for snack, 4pm cottage cheese/yogurt with fruit, 6 pm dinner (with the snacks I am not very hungry)
    I am lovign it, and I eat all day!

    1. Thanks girly! I will try that. I know, I have been adding in more food and eating smaller meals throughout the day too. But it is nice to see what your snacks and stuff are too... gives me more ideas! :)
