Tales From The Scales
I'm a bit late posting this. I should have done this yesterday. But yesterday I had a major dental surgery! Yes, I have decided to have some molar implants done. But not to get off track on this topic...I have decided to join this challenge because it's a way for me to "be healthy". I do not need to lose a lot of weight. My goal is to lose 5 pounds and then maintain that. My weight dances from 108 to 100 and maintaining it a 100 would be great. By the way, I am barely 5 ft. tall in case you'd want to know...
I am actually off to a great start with this dental surgery. Because I was asked not to eat anything 6 hours prior and I can't eat anything except liquid diet on the next couple of days...I've already lost weight! Yes, all 5 pounds!!! All have been having is that Carnation Liquid Breakfast.
But, as I said it goes back and forth so I am not claiming victory yet. I am very very VERY hungry right now and I know once I start eating I'd really be eating! I LOVE junk foods and I want to get away from that so I can be a good influence to my kids.
So there you go. This is a great challenge - not only to lose weight but to live a healthier life.
