Hi Everyone! This is my Weight Be Gone Thursday. If you would like to follow me in my journey you are welcome, and if you'd like to share your own journey feel free to sign my linky below, and I'll come visit you, and read your story too! If you have a great diet recipe you would like to share I'd appreciate it very much.

The reason I've started my journey is I had a rude awakening to the reality of life's threats in that if I still wanted to lead a fun, and somewhat of a meaningful happy life I had to make some serious changes.

Okay, weighed in this morning at 251 and finally starting to get rid of some of this water. I've had a discussion with the doctor, and I've been thinking about this for a very long time, and he's checking with my insurance company to see if they will cooperate as long as I have a medical opinion that medically I need this operation. So I've done my research, and I'm still waiting to hear from him.

Now, I'm not waiting around I've got my scholarship and heading back to Delnor Health and Wellness Center.  Love this place.  They've got everything.  So yesterday I went for orientation on the machines.  Which ones I should be doing how many, what weight, etc. etc.  Sounds like a plan to me.  

Kyle is the very nice man that really knew his business, and helped me so much .  Thanks bunches, dude.  Had a blast learning all the great stuff  you taught me.  You really know you stuff and I learned much.  Thank you.

I'm so jealous of those who are able to go to BlogHer this year! I've missed it the past couple of years, but I guess it just wasn't meant to be.

Next year for sure we'll be there with our party hats on! :) We'll be roomies and everything!

That place you go to sounds REALLY nice! Too bad it's not closer to me then we can be gym buddies ^.^
