So . . . It’s been a minute since I blogged. So many things have changed yet they somehow have remained the same.
I’m still obese. Wait. Check that. I’m still morbidly obese. I went to a bariatric seminar in November 2015. After two weeks of waiting for someone to call me to schedule an appointment as we were told, I had to call them. According to the woman I spoke to, I am not fat enough for the surgery. Seriously. I’m not fat enough. Talk about depressing. I did not start my spiraling, out-of-control eating until the last week of 2015, though.
Here we are now, the first week of 2015. I still have not regained control of my eating. I’m still searching for my soulmate meal plan. You know the one . . . The one I know beyond a shadow of a doubt I can stick with it for the rest of my life.
The biggest pitfall for me is that I absolutely despise being in the kitchen. I HATE it. No lie. I do not want to take the time to prep my meals for the week. If I had lots of money, I would just hire someone to do that. Unfortunately, I do not have that kind of money at my disposal. I’ve thought about stocking the freezer with microwavable meals. The problem with doing that is I would get bored rather quickly. Eating out really isn’t an option, either.
I will be 50 in four months, three weeks and a few days. I would really love to be at least 50 pounds lighter by then. It is doable. This I know. I need to get my head out of my rear and formulate a battle plan. With that being said, I am actually going to break down and physically attend Weight Watchers meetings rather than doing it online.
I did the Weight Watchers Online. I did not follow through with everything. It was too easy to ignore or not do something. By attending meetings, I know I will not have that option as much.
So . . . 2016 WILL be my Year of Change. Turning 50 makes me like Fine Wine . . . I will just keep getting better with age!!
