Well hello everyone, I am so excited about my new program through our Weight wise program, The information I recieved was really helpful. There was about 25 of us there and the nurse that was running a lecture she was an absolute dream What I really liked about her was that she was so realistic about things, and the best advice is journalling, we must write everything we eat into a journal, and weigh our selfves once a week because it keeps us accountable, so I will be back to that, and When we eat how are we feeling, what triggered us to eat. how we felt after this. Also how we were feeling before exercising and after. Then she had us look at our barriers. So myself my main energy is in the morning, so sitting reading a book in the morning is not going to make me get to my goals. BUT if I do them in the morning then eventually it will become a habbit. So that is step One. At the end of this program the outlook for alot of people is the lapband surgeries, gastric bypass or what is called a sleeve. This is not an option for me as I really want to do what I can for myself. The nurse did say they are only there to act a s a crutch and not always do they work.
What I found interesting is that what I start to do in the morning that is for the rest of my life. She said it is considered a Chronic condition, and even if you lose your one hundred pounds that there is no way that we can go back to our old ways. I posted the picture of the lightbulb, because this is really not rocket science, It is hard and will be hard! That light is also to remind us of brighter and better days ahead. No more darkness here for me. As far as the weight loss for the last 3 months, did great, faded, faded, but that is okay, its not about yesterday or the past 36 years. Its bout tomorrow and what I can do that day. I hope you choose to come on this trip with me. I am so excited about it.!
