The Healthy Lifestyle

I have been with Spark People since April 2009. As a cancer survivor I have long lasting health issues due to my radiation treatment. As a non-smoker and getting throat cancer or cancer at the base of my tongue it was devastating to hear BUT through the grace of God came through it. In 2009 I had some health issues that attacked my immune system and I worked with a nutritionist for 18 months on a healthy eating lifestyle and changes for the REST of my life that has helped me tremendously! ...

I have managed to make great strides in my life style change and weight. This is a journey for a lifetime and I will eventually get to my goal but in the meantime I am thrilled with the progess and success I have seen.

My Goals:
2011 started out OK but went from bad to worse with my Aunt on Hospice and eventually my Mom's illness, her many medical issues, hospice and death.. These deaths were devastating and eating on the fly and in between and no regular schedule has not helped BUT a weight gain was minimal at best!

MOVING FORWARD June 1st 2011 - I want to stay focused on getting to under 200 pounds by Christmas - as of May 21st I do not have my weight BUT I will be happy with ANY DROP I can get and will continue to focus on my healthy lifestyle!!


My Program:
To follow the 90/10 rule!

90% you stay on the program and there will be 10% of the time for vacations, celebrations or other things.

To stay focused on my healthy lifestyle eating and exercise

To remain POSITIVE and remember WHERE I was and know I will get to where I am going.

Hi Laura,
I have been MIA on the chat as usual. Hope all is well with you guys. Is there no more MA SparkRallies? I liked them and it was great to catch up with everyone.

We are trying to get back into a normal routine. Told hubby last night (who was lamenting about things that needed to be done) that we had three years of seeing to my mother's needs and her house plus ours that it's okay if it takes us a year to get everything up-to-date on our house.

Take care
Diane

How are things going? I haven't been on as much but miss talking to you and some of the people who I have known for so long on here. Hope you are staying safe in this artic weather. We just got 14 inches which is a lot for us in Kansas in one dose. I know its a drop in the hat to what you are used to. It was a good workout shoveling though. Take care.
