I was also accepted into our areas weight management program called Weight Wise. I had decided to become more pro-active and asked my GP to send in a referral. I had my first appointment on July 29th after five months wait.
So far I've seen an RN, Dietician and Psychologist. Monday I see a internist and later I have a appointment with a sleep doctor for my sleep apnea.
And yes, I decided to have weight loss surgery. Now I know it seems like a cop out but trust me it's not. I've never had surgery in my life and I'm deathly afraid but here are my reasons for my decision:
- I've been obese for over 23 years
- I recently found out a cousin who was three years younger than me passed away for weight related issues. I have some of those same issues
- My dh has serious health issues and if they get worse I'll be his primary caregive and I want to be in the best possible health I can be
- I want to run and run without my belly flapping like a penguin clapping. I'm sure I'm the only one that hears it but still Bah!
I have my weight loss binder done up with all my paperwork and whatnot and on payday I'm once again taking body shots to keep track and I'll chart my measurements also.
I continue to try and be gluten free and I'm striving for a Primal/Paleo lifestyle. I want to try CrossFit, run more, go back to yoga class and be the inner me that wants out so badly.
And look at this :)
I got this!!!
