New Day 1/62 (Weight Loss Time Baby!!)

Friday, October 05, 2012

I am excited, I am determined, I am feeling the pinch of a deadline. I have 62 days before I go see the "super specialist" (the one in St. Louis), though this feels like an incredibly long time, I have decided to view it from the other side. I ONLY HAVE 62 DAYS!! I am going to dive headlong back into my weight loss efforts and push for my goal of 190 by my appointment. I am not sure that I can lose that much, but I am aiming high and would be content to be a few pounds away.

I am keeping my calorie limit at 1300, which I know sounds a tad low, but keep in mind that I am extremely sedentary right now and I need my weight loss to be as fast as healthfully possible. I cannot exercise, except with the least intensity possible and I spend a lot of my days in bed (pain does that). So I am trying to do very light walking daily and keep my focus on the diet aspect.

Honestly, I am glad for the distraction of weight loss, school, and mundane daily activities. Otherwise I think waiting the two months for the big appointment would be absolute torture. Here we go! I am settling in for the long haul, lets see what kind of progress I can make with a solid deadline and a doctor to face at the end of the line.

WOO!!! Consider my game face officially ON!!

Thanks for being awesome and supportive everyone! Let's do this together!

    Sounds like you have a lot on your plate. I am very sad to hear about the pain side of your situation. I pray that you have the fastest 62 days of your life. I'm not sure what your condition is, but thinking positive, as you are, will only help to get you through all that comes your way. Keep up the wonderful determination, it sounds like you are mentally strong and that is what we all need to get through our troubles. Good luck with everything that comes your way these next two months.
