Well here I am, almost at the end of my first week of...what? I am inclined to call it a diet, but I have been on a great many "diets" that have failed. I'm not blaming the diets (well, most of them), because at the end of the day I am in control of what goes into my body. But let's face it, when I want something I want it now (yesterday if at all possible). So there are people out there in the big bad world who design diet programs and even drugs that will help me achieve my goal of losing 125lbs in six months, maybe less if I add exercise...and I don't even have to change my way of eating for some of them. Crazy. No, really. These people and companies are out for the same thing that we are all out for if we are honest. That's right...they all want great homemade chocolate cream pie. No, wait..sorry. That was just my stomache interrupting. It's money my friends...moolah. So after years of failing these "diets" that were supposed to make losing weight and being healthier easy (I probably could have bought a new car by now with what I have spent on these fad diets and drugs over the years), I came to the realization that something has to change. Okay, so partially true..my primary care physician referred me to a medical weight loss center that has helped me come to this big realization that I speak of. Wow, look at the time. I have to run. No, not run as in the exercise (yet), but I have to go for now.
