The Reintegration Challenge

Being back in the real world has been a treat: the freedom, the friends, the whiffs of pre-c simplicity.

Balancing freedom and caution — that’s been the rub. Deciding which food habits to resume, and to what extent. Which conditions merit exceptions, and how often.

Dairy, coffee, meat, caffeine, alcohol, refined carbs, even grains and beans.

It’s shocking how consuming these decisions can be, how frequently I tackle them and how convincingly I can make myself see both sides of each issue.

But it’s only been two weeks. I’m sure I’ll figure it out.

Andrea Ross was diagnosed with breast cancer October 6, 2009 and intends to survive and thrive. You can read more from Andrea here.

    I hope your balancing act is up and running before Mother's Day!

    I sympathize with you! It’s so hard to know what to eat and drink. But I know that in no time you’ll settle into a plan that works for you and that the decisions will become second nature.

    Hmmm. Mother's Day might be a tight deadline — and likely full of temptations if not exceptions.

    Thanks, Jay. I'm hoping so.
