Change Is Possible

Went to my wonderful Dr. B. in NYC today. He wants me to get serious about losing weight.

Enough already. I want to get serious, too. Just signed on @ and entered my height, weight, etc. I really like how you can look up any food and there it is, and the app calculates calories burned through exercise, etc. I exercise a lot, that's one thing I have going for me.

Wish me luck. I need it. Enough already. Enough. Enough. Tired of being stuffed into my skirts and jeans, of feeling ashamed when I see how heavy I am in photos and department store mirrors. Sometimes I don't know who I see in the mirror anymore.

Please God, let this be my aha moment, in the words of Oprah. Let this be the start of a healthier new life. A longer life. Less shame, more freedom.

Tired, too. Good night.

  1. Boot camp in the park.
  2. Kept that dr. appt. in NYC today; faced the music big time.
  3. Walked 20ish minutes to Grand Central from Port counting stairs to get on #6 train and 50ish minutes from Upper East Side back to Port. 
  4. H. still in New Orleans on business--told him I will need his support for this goal.
  5. Myfitnesspal!
