Next Chapter Again.

Tuesday, February 03, 2015

It has been 18 years now that I have been trying to loose weight. Hoping this time I will succeed. What makes this time different from the other 100 times I tried to loose the weight? well was my dad and I have stage 4 breast cancer. For over two years now my dad would mention to me that he walks everyday and he was 87 and now he is 89 and still walking. On Sunday January 4/2015 I made a commitment to myself that if my dad could walk everyday, then I who is 44 can too plus if I improve my eating habits and exercise maybe just maybe I will add years to my already sick body and it can keep the cancer from spreading to other areas of my body and I can keep it contained to where it is right now. I also can't make up excuses to not walk as my dad does it every day no matter if it is sunny or rainy. From this picture I was 185 lbs and I am now 165 lbs. I lost 20 lbs so far. I will post a new photo of me when I take one. I don't have any of me now.

    I'm so sorry about your diagnosis. You have a very inspiring father, and you are also very inspiring. Congratulations on the 20 lbs! You are off to a great start, and I know your healthy lifestyle will help you battle the cancer.
