Baby Steps

I did it!!!! I've taken the first step to separation.  Backround: I'm a firm believer in the "it takes a village to raise a child" philosophy.  The mix of people we surround our babies with colour the person they become so as parents we choose a rich tapestry of traits that we hope will imbue the people our babies become so is it unreasonable to want to take this approach to my life changes?  I think not so I've made contact with an organisation who take a whole person approach to weight management.  Does it cost $$$$, some but not nearly what I expected and tbh not anywhere near what I spend on self destructing so win/win right???  It's a 6 month program so no quick fixes in sight and is a mix of qualified professionals and educators with the focus being on wellbeing.  I don't want a diet, I can do diets but let's face it diets are a short term fix and I want a long life.

Now for the downside: I don't have my initial appointment for another 2 weeks, have some consideration please, it's taken me a long time to get to the point where I can acknowlege who I am and that I need help, patience is an acquired taste and I've never gotten the flavour.

I'm ready NOW :)

Hats off for taking this very important first step towards a 'better you' - mentally, physically and emotionally.

You will find a HUGE band of supporters here to cheer you on as you progress towards your goal and to pick you up and make you laugh when you are feeling low.

We may all be virtual, but we are also very, very real.

I'll be posting more on the mechanics as it unfolds. The first appointment includes an endocrinologist and vials of blood - sounds a bit too Twilight for my taste lol
