Okay, we'll know I really need to lose weight. When I was last at my internist's office, the nurse practitioner there referred me to this medical weight loss program. I was very excited. I think I just needed someone to point me in the right direction.
So.. lots of preparation, medical tests ect, later, I finally got started a week ago. It's very strict and structured, but I'm doing so well! That is part of what makes people successful on this diet, is the speed and amount of weight you lose. I have lost 16lbs in the first week. I'm sure it won't always be that fast, but it's a great motivator!
I've been giving away all kinds of food out of my house. I can barely eat anything and I figure a lot of what I have will be too old by the time I'm done. She says that in 14 months, I should be at my goal weight, 140 to 155lbs! Amazing. I haven't weighed that much since sometime in grade school. I still have food to give away if anybody wants some...canned goods, etc.
I'm planning on seeing this through to the end. And I'm so excited because I started thinking of some of the things I could do if I was at that weight. No limits! How exciting that would be. So it's a 60 week diet, with one week down and 59 to go!
