Ok, so like, a couple months ago I made this BIG commitment to getting healthy. Remember? It lasted a whole week, maybe two, maybe.
After a whole lotta soul searching and a huge weigh gain. I’ve finally made the commitment to lose weight. To go on a diet. To call it like IT is. I am morbidly obese and very unhappy. I have no energy and no ambition whatsoever. My kids are suffering. My husband is suffering. Most importantly, I’m suffering. So that’s it. I’m done being fat , tired, depressed and lazy.
2 ½ weeks ago I re-joined Dr. Bernstein. A very strict, medically supervised weight loss program. I had great success 4 years ago right before I started my infertility journey. I lost a whopping 70 pounds in 5 months and I would have continued but due to the nature of IVF treatment I was forced to quit. I must say that it didn’t take long to put back on forty of those seventy pounds and eventually all of it (and a bit more) but I abandoned everything I learned the minute I walked out the doors.
I could sit here and beat myself up about that but self-loathing is what brought me to where I am today, or at least in part. No more of that either. 2 ½ weeks ago today, I woke up and declared “NO MORE!”
I WILL faithfully track my progress on Fridays with no excuses or delays. I will be honest with myself and with you. Another commitment I am making. In doing so, I am going to post my weight, pounds lost, pounds gain, pictures, measurements and overall “thoughts” on this journey to a healthier me. I do this for two reasons:
So now, allow me to get right to the nitty and gritty...
