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 ...

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

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.

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'm guessing you might have been a "new doctor" in 1997, perhaps returned to school to qualify? I went back to school for law in my early 40s . . . quite an experience but so glad I did!!
