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

Her meds are a mess. She's on 3 meds that do nothing but potentiate confusion. So have to have a talk w/the Dr. Otherwise she did well in therapy. That's a definite plus

I think I've caught spring on the radar! The sun is out and it's not frigid! That's a start!

Going to IL in a few to visit. HUGS

Yes, between anesthesia and pain meds, change of routine and environment, it is extremely disorienting, esp. for an 86 yr. old. She seemed better today, though. Grateful!
