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

Your asking about Willie Sutton reminds me of what my PI attorney said during the consultation. I asked where he stands on the pain & suffering/quality of life issues. He replied, "It's my life!!," arms extended outward.

I'm so very happy that you find my musings hilarious when I was in earnest about buying back the concert hall. I must have done some vehement harrumphing about it. Truth, though, I never chipped in my own dollar toward the grand scheme. Collected zero, i.e., I neither passed "Go" nor went to Jail. This tells us that I'm not the stuff of real-estate saviors or tycoons.

P.S. My awareness of the merger and Gilda's Club name changes was a fluke. After we discussed it and Wilder the other day, a new member in a team wrote about feeling devastated over the cancer diagnosis of the woman whom she thinks of as mother. I googled to a club in her area and, voila, the Huff Post article came up. Then you wrote about it. Several of these little coincidences have been coming up.

Once upon a time, circa 1972, perhaps, I was a crackpot about a building name-change. Incensed that Philharmonic Hall had become Avery Fisher Hal because of his eight million dollar gift to correct the acoustics, I determined to collect $1 from each New Yorker to "buy back" Philharmonic Hall. Happy to say that I've since gotten over it. When the Tisch family donated enough for their name to be applied to the hospital at NYUMC, I thought it was not a bad thing. My mind boggles at the size of Ken Langone's gift -- enough to have his hijs name on an entire university medical center.

If I collect $1 from each person living in the U.S., I may be tempted to take advantage, so watch for the Laurie Center for the Performing Arts, Broadway and 65th Street.
