Extra weight causes cancer

I was watching the news last night where scientists were discussing a link between obesity and cancer. Apparently being overweight can be one of the main causes of up to 20 different cancers. Studies found that being overweight increases the risk of breast cancer, uterus and colon cancer, kidney, stomach and prostate cancers, as well as many others. You can read the details of this report at: http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/factsheet/Risk/obesity

If that isn't a good enough reason to get your weight under control, then I'm not sure what is? It certainly is enough to keep me on my healthy eating plan. Talking about my healthy eating plan, I've lost 2 kilo's the last couple of weeks, bringing me down to 100 kilo's. One more kilo to go until I reach my first major milestone of weighing under 100 kilo's. Then it's time to reset goals again.

Reached first goal under 100kg or 220 pounds

Today is a good day. I jumped on the scales and found I'd reached my first goal of being under 100kg or in other words 220 pounds. I am now 99kg / 217.80 and it's time to reset my goals. My goal is now to get under the 90kg mark.

I'm finding the more weight I lose, the easier it is to stick to a healthy eating plan. When I first started, I said that I'd buy a custard tart to award myself for reaching the 100kg goal. Now I'm there, I find I dont' feel like that tart after all. Instead, I now naturally like eating healthy, well proportioned meals and I'm determined never to go into the 3 figure weight ever again.
