Leslie's Lifelong Transformation
Sunday, February 10, 2019
Coundown to Optavia. T-minus 3 days and 4 nights and counting. Current weight 285. High weight 310. Recent weight loss 12. Organized my kitchen and set up an Optavia fueling and Lean and Green meal prep area in my kitchen. My husband provided me the means to start this journey at 45 years old due to a recent Diabetes diagnosis. It's my Birthentines Day present from a man who loves me very much and believes in me enough to sacrifice buying cool stuff for himself for my health and well being. Best Birthentines Day present ever! My Doctor agreed that I could have 90 days without meds to get my blood sugar under control with diet and exercise. Thomas Jefderson once said, "The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease." In that case, my Doctor is a keeper!! He even hugged me and said he believed that I could and would take control and get this weight off and get my sugar under control. I'm going to prove him right. As I read the part of Dr. Wayne Anderson's Habits of Health book titled Preparing For Your Journey, I reflect on the poor choices and the "f**k it I'll worry about it later" attitude I've always had, I'm humbled because later is here and I'm now forced to worry about it. Baby steps. That's what I'm taking. I've already started the journey. The first big climb is just ahead, a d I am committed. Ready or not, here I go!!
