41 days until surgery.
Friday, January 18, 2013
I'd really like to be able to say that I lost 100 pounds on my own prior to surgery. Basically, 100 pounds in five months. Well to do that I need to lose 27 more pounds in a mere 41 days. Normally I'd say that there's no way possible to lose that much weight in that little time. Right now I'm living an anything but a normal (to me) life. Right now I'm on 100% liquids and am exercising at least 5xs a week and have done so for two full weeks now. One day shy of six weeks to go until surgery.
I will admit to being sad about that. Not about surgery, but I really thought I'd be able to have a few bites of this and a few bites of that between now and the week before surgery. But I have to remember that it is only food and after I'm all healed up and am eating closer to normal (not in quantity but in variety) again, I can have those bites. And if losing 100 pounds is really important to me (and it is!), well then, there will be no bites of anything.
Dear Macaroni & Cheese,
I'm sorry that we can't hang out these days. It's not you, it's me. Maybe we can hook up for a short visit in 2014... but I'm not promising anything.
Have a great 2013... I know that I will!
