It has been a while, it is hard for me to keep up with everything sometimes, but I am alive and well. I have made a decision, with the help of my endocrin. It is time for a change. Tomorrow starts the first day of my weight loss journey again. I was down 90 pounds in 2008. I do not have a thyroid and when my levels went out of control so did the weight gain. So I am beginning again. He gave me many options, weight loss surgery was one, as I thought and prayed about it I didn't feel good about it at all. He gave me another option to try the new weight loss pill Quisma. I have been on the topramax that is part of the chemical makeup for migraines so I am feeling okay about this choice. So tomorrow I will begin my journey. My plan for this week begins with biking about 5 miles 3 times this week, and doing something like lunges, squats, and cardio. for two days. I hope this goes well and I definately need support. I also am going to eat two salads a day and limit my sugar intake. I have a mad sweet tooth and I really hope that this medication helps.
My plan then is to keep track of my weight loss and size changes, I will measure in later this week. Also I plan on using this blog as information for any who wants to know about this drug and the way it helps or side effects that aren't great. I think the experience of others is priceless so it will be good. I could always use lots of advice, and mostly encouragement.
Here is to the start of a new week, counting calories, and regular excersize. Wish me luck!!
