Weight Loss Center

Monday, December 09, 2013

Saw my doctor last week and he recommended me to a weight loss center. I'm staying positive about it, but it's hard sometimes when I think about how much weight I've gained. It's kind of like staring at a giant hill and being told you have to climb.

And you're just not that used to walking.

On the one hand, though, I'm thankful to have such a caring and understanding doctor. When I said 'My metabolism just isn't what it used to be in high school,' he pointed to his stomach and laughed.

The center I'll be going to is a place to meet with nutritionists and counselors. It's something I'm actually looking forward to.

One step at a time.

    Going to a center and speaking to a counselor each week has worked wonders for me. It's daunting to think about the hill but you just start walking. Then it's done and you wonder where the time went. emoticon
