am in Europe so it looks like i'll be the first one to report what the scale tell me today Monday
49 years old SAHM
treated for breast cancer for the last 14 months => still having immunotherapy drug injected in me every 3 weeks
it probably doesn't help with weight loss
l love my food too ... it's not just the drugs ...
+ am an emotional eater
+ who compensates lack of sleep with "eating more to stay awake/cope"
DD1 13, DS 11, and DD2 5
have been trying to loose about 14 pounds after DS was born
but in the 2 months after we arrived in the US in 2005, i put on another 14 lb
so that's about 30 lb i would need to loose
(my motivation = being able to refuse part of the 3rd stage of my treatment, meeting with the doctor, mid to end November)
for that i would have to be at least 30 lb lighter (some hormones being produced in fat cells)
i have a Tuesday 1.5 hour Tribal dance class
a Thursday swim session + tai chi
a Sat. Roller blade 2 hours class
+ have some weight to use at home and walk everywhere, a lot ....
but DH has been in hospital these last 10 days so routines went out of the window
+ was going to reward myself with 3 days in Paris kidless next week end with another momentarily kidless mom
and am still frantically searching who could take care of my girls for 3 days (found 2 families for the 3 nights for my boy)
am going to do my best for this round ... in spite of all the extra challenges of the moment
