My weight loss journey...
I've lost 11 pounds! I know its not much, but I'm finally in the double digits! I am 3 months into a 6 month doctor supervised weight loss program. My insurance requires this program prior to weight loss surgery. So I've been pretty good, making different choices. It's difficult for me sometimes, since I rely so heavily on food for my emotions. If I have a good day, I tend to celebrate with food. If I have a bad day, I tend to comfort myself with food. So I'm coming up with new ways to handle things and developing new habits. For example, I'm walking 2 miles a day, 5 days a week (I actually started parking a mile away from my office, just so I'm forced to walk). Instead of going to the vending machine at work, I keep healthier snacks in my drawer. The other day, my son wanted fast food, so I took him through the drive thru and bought myself a diet cherry coke and cooked myself dinner at home. It was not the ice cream sundae that I wanted, but I am better off for it! I must transform myself to improve my health and set a better example for my son! I want to be around for him as long as I can be. In order to do that, I must take control of my health in every way I can. The easiest way to do that, is to take my meds as prescribed and lose weight to improve my overall health. I'm great a taking the meds. It's the weight, I have the issue with. So I've begun my journey of weight loss and look forward to the future!
