Diet and exercise

I've had so much trouble losing the weight since chemo ended but it's finally coming off. What diet and exercise did I use, you ask? It's called "Have your mom go into the hospital, rehab and at your home diet". Yep, since everything that happened with Mom, I lost like 12 or 13 pounds. Probably because when I'm stressed, I don't hardly eat. As far as exercise - not so much. In fact, NONE. Now that things seem to be getting back to normal I noticed I already put back on a pound or two. I'm really going to have to get on top of this so I don't put it back on. I'm almost back to the weight I was in 2004 which was still not great but better than it has been. I need to get back on the treadmill, pronto!!!!!!!!!

Viki, you have to do like me, just do your exercise first thing in the morning and get it over with. I am not walking 3 miles anymore just 2 which is about 40 minutes, that is all I can handle. It must be helping the cardiologist said I could go back to work at the kennel.
I would say losing 12-14 pounds is great.

Hey Viki, I know how hard it is to loose the weight....it took me 62 years to get really serious about it and I know exercise is suppose to be the answer to keeping it off. I hate exercise hence by being overweight most of my life. I now walk almost 2 miles a day or do a walking video when the weather is bad, but I still hate it, except I know I have to, to keep the weight off. I still go to weight watcher meetings weekly, even though I only have to go once a month, but I think my body just wants to stay here....each week I flip flop....gain alittle, loose alittle....I would like to loose 10more pounds, but it isn't happening. I keep telling myself I'm actice watching the kids all the time, but it must not be enough. We just have those genes that we like food and not excercise. At least you didn't let yourself get to where I was....keep it up. Send our love to Auntie.
