Weighting Game

I started a weight loss program on Mon/Nov 21 (yes, Thanksgiving week). And as of Mon/Dec 19 (day 29), I've lost 17 lbs. I've got a long way to go but I've lost 17 lbs. so far - and during the holidays.

The program is with Metabolic Research Center and I'd heard of them and had many several appointments in the last year but never made it in.

I finally went in and was so moved by the women working there and the success stories and photos, that I cried. I think it was because of something I had given up on long ago - HOPE.

I've been overweight for over 20 years - probably closer to 25 years - and let's face it - actually morbidly obese (is there a worse term in the world?) for 10-15 of those years.

Of course, I'm impatient and want to be thin NOW. This is my mantra that's keeping me going though...

I just decided today that I'm going to write and share about this journey. And that scares the shit out of me (almost as much as the journey itself).

More soon....
