Welcome to 2009


Well now is the time to make all those nasty New Year's resolutions. Well I am make one. I vow to not make another New Year's resolution again. No more promises to lose weight, no more promises to give up something for lent, I am hoping to take care of all of that this year with my surgery.

Well the reality of it has hit full. I have my initial appointment with the surgeon. It will be February 12, at 8:00 AM. Lincoln's Birthday. How ironic. The only thing that will keep this from becoming a reality is if my A-Whole former doctor did not send enough of my records to my new dr in July. My insurance company requires at least a five year history with medical back-up of morbid obesity. I know I can pass that with flying colors, but if the idiot I used to see, did not send enough documentation I am dead in the water.

I have my second weight-loss appointment with my PCP on Jan. 14, 2009, and my third on Feb. 10, 2009. That will put me three appointments down out of the 6 I need. I have also started my three month food journal that is required of all the patients in PA

I think what I have been concentrating on the most these last couple weeks is getting in as much of the holiday food as possible. I won't be able to do Christmas Cookies, or pies, or fudge next year. I will also not be able to eat all those snacky foods.

This will be my last year ringing in the New Year with a Margarita. Maybe one day I will be able to enjoy a beer or mixed drink, but not in the near future. It is a really good think I love Milk (I would for a dairy, I must love milk) and I really love water. No flavoring needed.

I'm lifting my flavoured water in a toast to you, Erie. Here's to hoping the new year brings you much good health and happiness!
