Week 2

I lost 2.6lbs this past week and again updated the other blog and not this one. Ooops. I also did really good eating and controlling my emotional urge to snack but I never did get off my butt and exercise. Ooops? I know I need to get moving and eventually I will.

On Wednesday I had an appointment with a general practioning doctor. I've seen no one but my Ob/Gyn for years and years and felt it was time for me to go in and get a routine examination so as not to continue to walk around oblivious to possible problems. I have been blessed with good health - no major illness', no injuries, no surgeries, not even many sick days - low resting heart rate, low end of normal blood pressures - heck, I even still have 20/20 vision. I do not feel that I take these for granted. I thank God that myself and my entire family are healthy but I know that my weight could be the primary factor in future health problems if I don't get a handle on them now and put the obesity behind me. Overall the visit was good. My dr sees no reason for concern but I will go in tomorrow morning for a fasting blood draw to verify other things - cholesterol etc.

I know I have a long road ahead of me but am, at this point, determined to see it through to maintenance. I want my good health to include a healthy weight.

I am at but the beginning of a long road but look forward to journey. :)

I was obese before … morbid type, hard to get up from bed and I cant even tie my shoelaces. Things change now. To combat obesity you have to win over your mind telling you to eat, that’s how Acomplia works! It’s like magic-now my brain is not messing up with my appetite and weight! If everything else fails go for meds, you can view the complete list of weight loss meds at
