I just got back from my first meeting with the doctor who is in charge of the program. I had my blood work done last week and based on my blood I am as healthy as a horse but as fat as one as well. I'm not quite ready to put my number down to the Internet world as to how much I currently weigh. I guess its like telling your new boyfriend your sexual conquest number-frightening and uncomfortable all wrapped into one soul crushing judgemental stare down so I'm not going to do it yet. I think sometimes telling your hook up number may be easier! But the good news is that I ONLY HAVE 50 POUNDS TO LOSE! The bad news is that I ONLY HAVE 50 POUNDS TO LOSE! I know I can accomplish this goal and am ready to begin. He stated that most people lose 17% of their body weight during the 20 week session. I will have to increase my workouts to an hour a day to accomplish over 17% of weight loss. That's okay. I think I can do it.
Oh yeah, I should probably mention that I have two small children and a sorta job. I work 3 days a week at the family business and occasionally from home but am home with the kids the days that they are not at daycare. I have a daughter who just turned two and a son who is 5 months old. It's slightly exhausting. But enjoyable. My husband is a wonderful guy and we have been married for 5 years this month. I will call him "M." My husband also is building his own business and so he is on the road a lot trying to make a name for his-self which leaves the parenting mostly to me when he is gone. I think its hard. And I have eaten myself silly lately to I guess get my feelings out or something?! This has resulted in being fat and miserable so now its time to do something about it. So here I am! Pictures and other self absorbed things to follow!
