IT'S TIME!!!

So I keep telling myself it's time...time to keep up with the blog...time to keep up with writing and getting it all out there. Time to get back to reading...Time to get a job. So again...I'm saying it!! IT'S TIME!!

It's been over a year...how does that happen?? A YEAR!! Really??

I had my ONE YEAR cancer free anniversary, but I'm still finding it so hard to move on...why is that??  I'm always expecting and waiting for it to come back. I know it'll just take time...it's just time I feel like I'm wasting...

So back to the grindstone on weight loss!!

I moved on and comfortably into the 5:2 diet. Read about it!. It's one I don't have to fight with or even really think about...I made a list of foods I can eat and different ideas for low cal snacks and meals...I have to admit it's working. Last year put me back up at 178 when I weighed in in January.YIKES!!!

Didn't do anything about though for a couple months...I was having some severe issues with my immune system...sick all the time...it wasn't fun...Docs just said it's going to take time...so finally in April, I wasn't sick as often and my energy was starting to come back. In May I decided it was time to get back to it!!

I went back to low carb and dropped 12 lbs that first 2 week...then nothing...stayed on it and really strict for almost 6 weeks...finally got frustrated and decided to look into something else...the 5:2 was the one that made the most sense to me...BUT counting calories again...hmmmmmm.

Decided it was totally worth it and the weight started coming off...the first week was hard but after that it came pretty easy. I can pick and choose my days, which I LOVE and that's makes it so easy. I still don't eat a ton of carbs but I can...without my weight jumping 5 lbs in a day...

I have to say that I'm happy with how things are working out....I weighed in this morning at 151. I am so looking forward to seeing the 140's on the scale again.

OH and my hair grew in curly sometimes...straight others...and funky...but it's mine...lol
