Another Birthday and Another Year Ahead of Cancer!

Today is my Birthday, 54, and it’s always an extra personal celebration being a Cancer Survivor! To see another Birthday means I’m still here and staying ahead of cancer. It’s my dream before it’s my time to go to hear the Medical world announce that they have finally found a cure for Cancer! This coming July (2013), if all goes well, will be my 9 year anniversary of being Cancer Free. I still see my Oncologist BirthdayCakeevery 3 months, Scans and X-Rays every 6 months, and my dermatologist 2 times a year. Prevention, Prevention, Prevention! It’s huge for all Cancer Survivors to stay on top of it. I lost my left leg to Melanoma cancer back in 2001 and then had to fight again afterwards. Then I was involved in a Cancer Trial at University of Pittsburgh for one year along with 93 others. I was told sometime back that I was the only one to have survived due to the trial and whole lot of prayer from family and friends. A prosthetic leg, unfortunately, never worked due to the fact my leg was cut so short (Just under my left hip). But I have accepted being an amputee and life in a wheelchair. And through it all I feel very blessed! So Happy Birthday to me and very proud to say I’m a Cancer Survivor!

Reach Your Goals!
Living a healthy lifestyle is a work in progress. Celebrate your small successes by reaching practical goals that will boost your confidence and your spirit. Diabetes doesn’t have to stop you!

Easy Tips to Stay on Track
If your job is a place where your commitment to eating healthier flies out the window, find out how you can make small changes that can give you big results.

1) Eat Away from Your Desk
Your desk is not a lunch table. Put aside your work and take a few minutes to relax and enjoy lunch away from your work space. Use that time to stretch, walk around, and enjoy a couple deep breaths to reenergize for the rest of the day…..

Another great article from diabeticlivingonline.com Some really grood info on weight loss and it’s benifits.

The Benefits of  Weight Loss
A body of scientific evidence suggests that even a modest amount of weight loss — 10-15 pounds — can make a big difference in managing diabetes. The key is to go about losing weight healthfully. Weight loss can yield sweet successes, including:

— Lower blood glucose

— Lower blood pressure

— Improved blood fats (cholesterol)

— Lighter load on your joints and feet

— Easier movement and breathing

— Increased energy level

Start Your Day with Breakfast
One surefire way to ruin your weight loss efforts is to skip breakfast. People who eat breakfast regularly tend to have a lower risk of weight gain compared with people who skip the meal, according to a 2007 British study of the dietary habits of more than 6,700 adults.

“Breakfast skippers tend to make up for those saved calories by eating more later in the day. The net result isn’t weight loss. In fact, it’s frequently weight gain,” says Jill Weisenberger, R.D., CDE, a Virginia-based dietitian and certified diabetes educator.

When you eat breakfast, you can resist those midmorning vending-machine raids because your blood glucose levels stay more stable and your metabolism responds more favorably.

“Eating a balanced breakfast is a great way to start the day. It says right off the bat, ‘Hey, I’m taking care of myself,'” Weisenberger says….
