I'm back...

Saturday, March 21, 2015

So...I was never the super active sparker....but I used the fitness and diet tracking consistently and lost about 75lbs two years ago in 2013 which is fantastic....then life happened and I used that as an excuse to pile almost all of it back on.

I recently came to the conclusion that the only time I was consistently losing weight was when I was consistently keeping track of what I was putting in my mouth and what I was doing to expend that energy. Thus the reason for my return.

Last year at a doctors visit, my family doctor mentioned weightloss surgery, saying that I'd be a good candidate for it, and to give it some serious thought and to let her know if I wanted to proceed with the OHIP application. So I thought and thought and thought (for over a year), and made my decision. I want to apply and at least go to the orientation information session.

I know it won't be the magic bullet and I'll need to put in just as much work and effort as going it alone with diet and exercise. But the thinking that both my doctor and I have is that it would be one more tool to get me to my goal: HEALTHY!

My doctor also mentioned that keeping track of my feelings might also be helpful, so that's where I'm going with trying to keep up with the blogging here.... I was thinking of actually posting about any questions I have about the procedure and what the answers are as I find them....because knowing me...I'm sure some of the questions I have might be interesting to say the least.
