I'm not much of a blogger, but this journey is all about me so I am going to make a blog, for myself more than anything :D
I went to see my doctor today to share my progress. Almost 15 weeks ago I went and told him that I need help to lose weight because I CAN'T do it on my own. I told him that I could not control what I was eating and there was nothing I could do.
I have no thyroid problems or any other issues that should cause me not to be able to lose weight but I was at a loss. I felt beyond hopeless.
While I was sitting there talking to him a feeling started to creep over me. A feeling, to my surprise, of acceptance. I accepted that I had to do it, ME. No one can help you if you won't help yourself. So I made the decision to really do it and I can't fail.
Anyway, fast forward 14 and a half weeks into the future and there I am, weighing in on his scale. HIS SCALE!
That alone is a HUGE accomplishment for me. I have not been able to weigh on a doctor's scale in over 10 years!!! I'm down over 4 stone now (59 pounds) and there I was standing on his scale and looking at my weight.
A few years ago I bought myself a special scale that goes up to 450 lbs thinking that one day I'd definitely be up over 400 pounds. That never happened (thank goodness!) and now I almost don't need this heavy weight scale at all!! How exciting!
