As of my weigh in this morning I have reached my initial weight loss goal and the first of two hurdles between where I began and the surgery I need through VA. To date I have moved my BMI from 40+ to 34.5, and my weight from 288 to 244.
Now for the big one, I have to divorce my constant companion of 40 years. Cigarettes. I am going with the patch, quit day is set for April 24. This one worries me. Both the quitting and the fear of gaining weight again if I do.
I am now one week into my aqua aerobics and will lean on this heavily to fill my time during my early stages of quitting. Your good wishes will be welcome!
