Just Checking In
Apr 16, 2009Hello again. We are two weeks away from our surgery date and both of us are ready to go. The diet we have been on for the last 1-1/2 months is working, but we know there is no way we can get to where we need to be without this surgical help. We bought an elliptical and we are on it every morning and every night with a few slips here and there. Paul is up to four minutes and and I am at five minutes. I try to walk one mile every day during lunch time also to keep myself moving. We go to the surgeons office next Wednesday for another weigh in to make sure we are on the correct path. When we first started this diet thing the only thing I could think about was my Whataburger bacon cheeseburger with extra mayo. It was calling me. I finally gave in about three weeks ago and don't know what happened. It was.....not good??!!?? For some reason, maybe the guilt, but the taste wasn't there and it cured my need for Whataburger. Amazing. Now...if I can just get over my desire for Dairy Queen ice cream. Haven't been there to cheat yet and hopefully when I do go there in the future I will be satisfied with just a taste. All the changes that are coming!!!!!!! Keep us in your prayers that we are up to the challenge!
