My Journey - April 3, 2008

I started this journey on March 27, 2008. The excess weight has been more than excess baggage for me, and is preventing me from reaching many of my personal goals. For better or for worse, society views overweight individuals as people who are poor performers - at work and in their personal lives. Sadly, in today's world, perception is everything. As a health care professional, being overweight makes one's own credibility suspect. How can one advise patients to lose weight and take control ...

As a health care professional, being overweight makes one's own credibility suspect. How can one advise patients to lose weight and take control of their own lives when their own physician cannot?

So here we go. This beginning is a lifechanging one on so many levels. I deserve it and I'm ready to start.

Something just clicked these last several weeks. I think it helps a lot having someone at work join me this month to get a .... and then Spark accidentally deleted the rest.

UPDATE - December 15, 2013

Still working on 50 pounds gone for my niece's wedding, August, 2014. Leaning towards more NSVs for now. Looking at the calendar and plotting a mini-goal to stay on track: 12 pounds by the week of March 11th. That's reasonable, and comes to one pound a week for the next 12 weeks. Mark me to stay on point and feel free to join me. TWELVE POUNDs, PEOPLE, IS DOABLE! WHO'S WITH ME?

Update - February 15, 2014

Life is about change. It's good to see where I was almost six years ago, and how much has happened since then. I revisited a blog of a friend of an SP buddy of mine today: PrettyPithy's

I really appreciate your feedback and information! I had workout ideas for one of my teams, but never commit to posting, and now I understand my intuition-I'd be doing more than sharing, I'd be giving it away! I'll keep that in mind.

I know. The absence of brain damage counts for much. I appreciate that.

You're absolutely correct: It could have been worse than a concussion. And even these first days of trying to deal with the unresponsive NYC Transit people has made the headaches worse. Trying to think pretty thoughts and put it all aside for the day -- can't get anywhere on Sundays with this sort of thing. The city provides a lifetime haven, paycheck and benefits for the otherwise unemployable.

Pretty thoughts...pretty thoughts.
