Now that I have talked to the Weight Management group...

They gave me lots of options...

1) they have an online program (which I just finished signing up with and printed out my Daily Food and Beverage Diary. Exciting, I know.

2) They have discounts with Weight Watchers... so I can try that out if I want

3) I can pay $75 for a consultation with a dietician. Hmm... not sure about that one

4) I could get a prescription for Optifast... I'm not even sure what that is... hmm... I should look that up, huh? ~~~~~ okay... I looked it up... it's basically shakes, etc.

or 5) surgery... I'm not quite sure about that one, think I'll leave that as an absolutely last resort!

Well... tomorrow will be day one! Wish me luck! I have to work out a minimum of 30 minutes a day... no more than 2000 calories and no more than 67 grams of fat per day. I have to keep a Daily food and beverage diary that lists the calories and fat that I've had during the day and report that every day on my doctor's website.

Here goes nothing!

Hi there. Am just visiting after your very kind comments on my SITS day. I just wanted to say thank you so much for visiting, I really do appreciate it and the very best of luck with your diet. I too have battled BATTLED with my weight since my children rather selfishly made me overeat since coming into the world! I turned to hypnotherapy recently and it seems to have worked for me, and I really do wish you every success
