WXII's Transformation Nation

Well, I've taken the plunge (so to speak) andsigned up for 16 weeks of water aerobics at a local Y. They're running a program called Transformation Nation Triad in conjunction with a local TV station, and you get nutrition advice, workouts, health assessments and other information over the course of the program.

Although I'm working closely with my PCP, nutritionist, bariatric surgeon and physial therapist, it'll be nice to be able to have a low-impact workout every week and I may pick up some good information along the way.

The part that sucks is that it's 8:30am on Saturday mornings - BLECH! I'll have to take advantage of sleeping in while I can :)

It's hard to imagine....

When I started seriously trying to lose weight in October of 2010 I never thought I'd be where I am now. When I weighed myself this morning I realized what I weigh is equal to the amount of excess weight I was carrying, and the amount of weight I've lost to date equals what my healthy body weight should be.

So, I've lost me (in a manner of speaking), and the image in the mirror today was how much extra weight I was carrying on my frame 24/7/365.

Something about that has really struck a chord with me and makes me wonder how I ever got so broken.
