Striving to Thrive

Friday, June 07, 2019

I started back here two weeks ago hoping to be guided to better eating habits. I'm order to keep my body strong, I must overcome years of skipping meals. So I'm fighting old demons to develop a healthier life. After years of fighting cancer and a bone marrow transplant I'm learning my new " normal". Today I am struggling to make myself eat. I have little appetite and desire. It's the afternoon and I've had about 300 calories so far, mostly from milk. Maybe tomorrow will be better.

    It is amazing how hard it is to eat regularly, especially after chronic health issues. My wife and I both are still struggling with eating as if it is a regular activity. We've also developed a habit of being hermits, and we are not happy about that. Part of how I'm learning to interact with neighbors comes from my desire to learn and support other folks here. Of course, it also requires me to be out of the house, so I can't spend all my time online.

    I'm glad you are part of our Eating on a Budget team. Have you checked out some of the recipes and snack ideas?

    You are in my prayers for your journey to health. Keep pushing. There are people here who wish to support and encourage you.

    You are not alone. I'm glad you are here at SparkPeople.

    I know it is a difficult problem to eat when you are not hungry but we need to feed the body to nourish it. So keep working on it. Success will be yours emoticon emoticon emoticon
