I am excited, I am determined, I am feeling the pinch of a deadline. I have 62 days before I go see the "super specialist" (the one in St. Louis), though this feels like an incredibly long time, I have decided to view it from the other side. I ONLY HAVE 62 DAYS!! I am going to dive headlong back into my weight loss efforts and push for my goal of 190 by my appointment. I am not sure that I can lose that much, but I am aiming high and would be content to be a few pounds away.
I am keeping my calorie limit at 1300, which I know sounds a tad low, but keep in mind that I am extremely sedentary right now and I need my weight loss to be as fast as healthfully possible. I cannot exercise, except with the least intensity possible and I spend a lot of my days in bed (pain does that). So I am trying to do very light walking daily and keep my focus on the diet aspect.
Honestly, I am glad for the distraction of weight loss, school, and mundane daily activities. Otherwise I think waiting the two months for the big appointment would be absolute torture. Here we go! I am settling in for the long haul, lets see what kind of progress I can make with a solid deadline and a doctor to face at the end of the line.
WOO!!! Consider my game face officially ON!!
Thanks for being awesome and supportive everyone! Let's do this together!
