A trip to the doctor has put things in perspective for me. So many people have no choice about whether they live or die but I've been given that choice and I don't intend to waste it.

I'm back in school and pulled a 3.94 after 20 years out of school so I'm encouraged that I can do this if I just put 100% into it. I have to. I just have to tell myself I can do this.

I've been doing this for years and the great thing is that I always start back off with less to loose. At 20 I had 250 lbs to loose, at 30 I had 200lbs to loose, at 40 I had 150lbs to loose, now at 42 I have 100 lbs to loose. I lost 50 last year so 100 doesn't seem so bad. In fact the doctor says another 50 would be awesome. So I'm fired up to get this done. I know I can do this by Christmas if I just don't give up or let myself get distracted.

Gonna be throwing away the cigs in the next couple days. I figure the best time would be Monday when I go back to school since I'm not allowed to smoke on campus. Gotta get this done, can't play around anymore.

I know this is kind of broken up but just trying to get back into the swing of things and let everyone know I'm back. Going to school, quiting smoking and loosing weight is going to be a hard thing all at once. Any and all support is appreciated.

Thanks... you guys are the best!

    emoticon You have come a long way and haven't gained it all back like so many others!! emoticon emoticon
    Stick with your goals, check in with SP, keep up with your blogs with updates and we will be here to cheer you on as you get closer to you all time low weight. I am about the same-70 to 100 to go. I will decide once I get down there, like your Dr. says-50 would be great! So ...... emoticon emoticon Increase the exercise and keep watching the food too and lots of water...it really works! Good luck!!
