Time for another Strategy

Monday, December 29, 2014

Work has been going well. I have been out of training for 4 weeks now. My fiance also got a job there. He will be starting on the 6th. Financially, we're going to be set. I am so thankful and happy.
Health wise, I have fallen back into old habits and working a sit down job, that's not a happy situation. Luckily, I have a friend who is willing to take me on as a client at the local gym. I have a consultation today at 11. I am going to take measurements and weigh myself before I go.

The last time I went to the doctor, he mentioned that gastric bypass surgery was an option. I told him that I would rather do it on my own, but look what happened when I did that-not only did I not reach my weight loss goal, I also ended up gaining all the weight back.
I've "enrolled" into the bariatric centers for excellence, or whatever its called because either way, I have to wait 6 months. I'm going to try to do it on my own, but I want to start the process just in case. I definitely want to avoid surgery at all costs. I got the pamphlet in the mail the other day, and there's a LOT involved and there is SO much that can make you nauseous. I already get nauseous really easily, and I can't imagine the physical and emotional pain thats involved. I'd rather go the route of the personal trainer, and a counselor. That works, it just requires loger comittment.

Well, everyone wish me luck! I'll be posting more frequently on here now. I want to get back into the swing of things. I miss my healthy body. I actually wrote a list of health related reasons why I wanted to lose weight-there were 50+ reasons! I need to get and stay motivated. I am just happy to be in a position financially where I can afford such a luxury. I am very thankful for the opportunity.
