The Appointment

I'm hoping this will soon be ME!!

Yes, the appointment is made. 1 week from today and I will be starting the journey. I really wanted to start this week however, my doctor is swamped. Her husband is the walking/talking billboard! He lost 37lbs in 4 weeks! Now, men you know lose weight so much quicker than women (just another place they have the advantage!) But, I am thinking I can lose 30lbs in the 1st 6 weeks. That is my 1st goal! I can't wait!!
If you want to see what I am doing go HERE.

Mental Poo

I am Mentally Preparing for the journey. I made the appointment for Thursday, March 4th which is perfect!! I am going to celebrate my birthday on Sunday and START on Monday the 8th. Perfect one last hoo-rah prior to starvation! Kidding, I know I will not starve I am fat enough that I should be able to live off of the extra pounds for months!
I really didn't think about it but I can't have wine! Uggg... Maybe she'll give me somthing to cut the edge? I mean I am a super social chick who makes somewhat of a living by baking for others.

I am going to lose weight.
I am going to feel better.
I am going to look better.
I am going to do this.
Come hell or high water.

Game Plan

My doctor, who happens to be a friend is going to help me through my journey.
(So, for any of you worry worts I am going to do this under a doctors supervision and she is a really good doctor who doesn't buy into a quick fix)
For the 1st 6 weeks I am going to be on a liquid diet and meal replacement bars.
It is drastic, I know, desperate times call for desperate measures.
I need to lose ALOT of weight.
I know my definition of alot may not be yours but, one thing I have learned at weight is all relative.
I need to fit in my clothes.
I need to be able to wear a bathing suit.
I need to not pass my fat"ness" onto my child.
I need to be healthy.
I need you to join me.
Will you?

My Story...

{Preface} I never thought I would do this. I never thought that I would share my journey from Fat Bird to Kat Bird. But, here I am. I need to share a little long and drawn out story. Tina (my mother) weighs 95 lbs sopping wet and has always been mortified to have two fat daughters. Oh yea, I said it we are both F.A.T. Around the 5th grade when I starting gaining weight ironically(not at all) this is the same time that the parents are getting the Big D and we are moving from a town we lived in our whole lives to a major city where we know noone, never mind we ate frozen dinners and fast food. She began making "inspiration boards" with skinny models and how I "should" look. That is alot for a pre-teen to take.
Fast forward to college Tina would pay for gym memberships, over text books, nutri-system over sorority dues, bribe me with new clothes if I lost weight. Yes, it was all quit sick. I took advantage of it everytime. I still am heck she is paying for my 1st visit to the Medical Weight Loss! (Don't judge me she's nuts and totally screwed me up! I deserve it!)
I am heavier now than when I was 9 mos preggers with baby j. By the way he is 2 1/2 now I the best thing ever. (gotta give my boy a shout out) Promise not to blah, blah, blah about the boy except when something super funny happens. Or when it ties directly in with my journey. 
I can't make any promises on how this is going to go. All I can say is that I am serious. This is the LAST diet life changing, new way of eating, journey to who knows where I am ever going to do.
Will you JOIN ME?
