Regaining my formal self post lung cancer

I am a Lung cancer survivor whose physical being has taken a beating since being diagnosed 5 1/2 years ago. Before lung cancer I was a 135 avid tennis player. After treatments I weighed 124 lb. I was in pain and heavily medicated and pretty much sat on the couch for 6 months. I couldn't swallow and therefore had to be fed through a stomach tube.

I am a Lung cancer survivor whose physical being has taken a beating since being diagnosed 5 1/2 years ago. Before lung cancer I was a 135 avid tennis player. After treatments I weighed 124 lb. I was in pain and heavily medicated and pretty much sat on the couch for 6 months. I couldn't swallow and therefore had to be fed through a stomach tube. I guess once I was able to eat I couldn't stop.
After 1 1/2 years I jumped back into work full time. I was exhausted. No energy. No exercise. My weight topped out at 182 lb. I was layed off from my job last August. By November I decided to concentrate on my health and try and get back into shape.
I haven't played tennis in 4 1/2 years and want to be able to play again. I have joined a diet study with my local hospital and also a LiveStrong exercise program. So far, I have lost 17 lbs. I am signing up with SparkPeople to continue my progress.

Welcome to Spark! Some of my favorite things here include the nutrition & fitness trackers, the teams, being able to blog, give goodies, and support each other. A lot of people also love the recipes too. There is a lot to the site. Take your time and look around and see what works best for you. :0)
I am on the Massachusetts team, Western Mass team, and Pioneer Valley team. See you soon!
