I decided this week to start losing weight--I've been neglecting myself and haven't been paying attention to my body. None of my clothes fits me anymore and I refuse to buy new ones. Since the induced menopause during my chemotherapy treatment, my body just isn't the same anymore. I seem to have gained a lot of weight and couldn't get rid of it. I've decided to do something and work harder on taking care of myself to stay healthy and hopefully live longer.
I began my diet program by quitting coffee (diuretics) and limiting myself to warm water with lemon juice and honey. It was very difficult on Monday (1st day) but I'm feeling much better now. I noticed that I've been drinking a lot of water, which is what I really need to clean out my digestive system. I've also decided to skip lunch for the first two weeks and have a light dinner with only 1 cup of rice. As for exercise, I'm planning on buying a treadmill and walk at least 1 hour 3X a day. Taiwan is just not a good place for walking outdoors (high levels of air pollution) and the gyms are just too expensive.
I really don't know how this is all going to end up but I will try my best to keep it up until I reach my goal.
