The Plan

19 Sep

My Plan to Save My Life from Obesity

Strict 1200 Calorie Diet

300 calorie breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A 200 calorie snack and a 100 calorie snack. The menus are provided by Allan at Almost Gastric Bypass.

140 ounces of fluid a day

This will be mostly water. Possibly a diet soda here and there. Nothing sweetened, fat free milk only.

Minimum of 30 minutes vigorous exercise a day

I want to be a runner. It is something that I want to become passionate about. I have downloaded a C25K app that allows the user to play their own music in the background. I am very excited to begin using this.

Current weight as of this morning 240lbs. My first weigh in will be this Sunday and every Sunday there after. This week I am being a bit optimistic and hoping for 10 pounds. I feel like I really need a nice high number to jump start myself to get going. I know it may not be 10 pounds since I am starting on Wednesday which will mean only 4 days of eating right and exercising. I’m hoping for the best. The challenge that I am involved in with Allan’s blog actually started in August…let’s just say it’s taken a bit to pull my head out of my ass and get my brain on board. I am looking forward to the challenges and accomplishments to come. Thank you for your support and encouragement in advance!

Here’s to healthy spoonfuls!



Gaining by Losing

15 Sep

Time for a Spoonful!

Welcome back readers! I apologize for my extended absence. 

Today’s post is going to be about what I’ve gained by losing.

My entire life I have dealt with weight issues and being the chubby kid or the fat girl. In the past year I have finally accomplished losing and keeping off 50 pounds. I have quite a bit more to lose. I am currently sitting at around 237 pounds. I need to lose 102 pounds to be at my goal of 135 pounds. Other goals are becoming a runner and I want to be a surrogate. I know not everybody understands my want to be a surrogate…it’s just something I feel I have to do. It is such a beautiful gift to help give someone a child. However, I have looked into it and the doctors will not work with someone with a BMI over 30. My BMI is currently around 47…classified as “Morbidly Obese”.

MORBIDLY OBESE…I’m only 25 years old and I have a child who’s future I want to be around for.

It’s crunch time people. I need to save my life from heart problems, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and a laundry list full of other things that obesity causes.

I need to save my life from obesity.
