Weight Loss Before Surgery - Day 1/80
Monday, September 10, 2012
Well, lets just say that things are not going well. My health has been even more unsteady and the treatments don't seem to be working, which has put me on the road to some difficult choices, as well as, major surgery. I am not looking forward to going through any of this, but if it will bring relief than I am more than game to endure the process.
There is one thing that I can say for enduring extreme pain on a daily basis and having surgery looming in the distance, it is a real kick in the pants as far as weight loss! My doctor, in all his wonderfulness, has finally gotten me to be serious about this. I have to lose 10 percent of my current weight by my next doctors appointment on November 29th. That is 21.6lbs in EIGHTY DAYS!! So basically, no room for error, no room for binges, no room for excuses. I don't have options here, I am miserable and in order for that misery to someday end, I have to lose weight, simple as that. I refuse to have my weight mess this up.
Now before you start freaking out, let me assure you that I am doing this healthfully, no less than 1200 calories per day and exercising to an extreme is out of the question. I want this to be a change that I can keep up, something that will not just benefit me for surgery preparation, but also for the rest of my life.
I will keep you all updated!
Here we go!
