Starting. Starting Again. And again. And again.

In my work, I always say “the numbers don’t lie”. Here are my numbers, in pounds:

Lowest weight as an adult: 145 (18 years old)

Highest recorded weight: 321

Weight at first surgeons visit: 306

Weight at surgery: 278

Lowest weight after RNY surgery: 170 ( this is a good goal weight)

Total lost: 108 (or 151 if counting from highest)

Weight today: 247 (54 years old)

Regain = 77

Maintaining a loss of 31 pounds (or 74 from highest)
I choose not to accept my current metrics. 

So, here we go again. 


Loose 77 pounds over the next three (3) years (1/2lb – 1 lb a week. Doable. Sane. Healthy.)

Overeaters Anonymous. OA meetings once a week. Literature and podcasts daily. Weekend events 3-4 times a year.Writing. Service. Phone calls. Work my 12 steps. Work with a sponsor.

Bariactric support group monthly, at least.

Find a new therapist. Weekly sessions.
Drinking 64-124 ounces of water per day.

(Mostly) Plant based eating  without a lot of fat. Three small meals a day, with 1-2 small snacks only when needed. 

Pilates 3 days a week.( to start)

Walking 2 times a day, 15 minutes at a time, 5 days a week. Get outside.

Gardening  – growing my own food. Get outside.

Setting up my treadmill again. Shoveling off the dust. (Bribing myself with buying season 12 of Bones)

7-8 hours of sleep a day.

Meds. Vitamins. Supplements. 

Clean and declutter my house. My attic. My garage. My office.  My life. My head. 


Not this:

I know it is a choice. 

And I get to make it.

 Every single day.

Never give up. Never say Die!
