I'm an emotional eater. I am afraid of that, and so I try very hard to keep on top of my weight. I'm not really a big 'weigher'. Normally, when my pants get tight, well, I start dieting. This year though. Argh. Breast cancer patients normally gain weight during treatment. Not being one to buck convention (heh), I plunked on some weight. You change shape too. Thicker around the middle. Add the job stress on top of that, and then the stress of not finding another full time job, and then what shall we do...well. Basically, I need to lose weight. I want to lose about 30 pounds, which is actually more than I gained, but I was reading that fat cells produce small amounts of estrogen. My cancer had hormone receptors. Since I'd like, very much, to not deal with cancer again, I'm determined to lose this. It's the right time. I'm excited about school. I've got a job again. I won't have a lot of time to sit around and fret about my situation.
Every Friday, I'll post my weight loss. Anybody that wants to lose weight along with me is welcome to do so. We can swap tips, encourage one another, if you like. I've been seriously dieting for two weeks now. Last week I lost one lousy pound. This morning I stepped on the scales to discover that I lost
Late Edit: Gees. Sorry about this. This was actually Friday's post. Friday is the official weigh in day.
PS: NW? Yeah, you notice that I did not post my weight. Not going to either. I'll post how much I lost, but it's not anyone else's business how much I weigh. Sorry about the confusion here, folks.
