Day 1, Cake For Breakfast

The past few months I have made a some halfhearted attempts to lose some weight and get back on track with my health habits. Maybe more like quarterhearted. lol! Getting careless while getting older is not a good combo. My goal has always been to age gracefully while living an active healthy life. I've worked hard for many years to achieve that, including weight loss..knee replacement...skin removal...and exercise. So why drop the ball when I turn 59? Makes no sense, but said ball was dropped and dropped HARD!

Last night I put my Cambridge on the counter and everything I use to make my Cambridge Chocolate Lava cake. I didn't want to wake up with lost momentum and change my mind. I got up, poured my coffee, and 3 minutes later I had mixed and microwave baked this:

It was a perfect start to my day. It's 2:43 as I type this post to my blog and I have also enjoyed a Rich Vanilla Shake with Watkins caramel flavor. Yummy! I'm feeling good and confident that I will complete this day successfully and continue on to Day 2.

I don't know why I got so careless the past couple of months. I know the consequences and the price I pay with weight gain and poor health. Oh well...no looking back. Only forward and no more nonsense! I'm SSing to get back on track with my weight and my numbers (blood sugar, BP, etc) and if you would like to join me, please do!

Before Considering Weight Loss Surgery....

If you have been considering gastric bypass surgery, I want to encourage you to first give Cambridge Diet a try. Consider this...your digestive tract is not the reason you are overweight. Why take a functioning GI tract and cut it up? It would be like amputating your arm because your foot itches! Controlling your eating along with the habits and behaviors that got you overweight is the logical correction. Gastric surgery can not guarantee a permanent solution to what drives your obesity. it can temporarily restrict your capacity for food, but many patients learn how to override that restriction and they gain the weight back. At some point in our lives we MUST take responsibility for our choices and behaviors and stop making excuses. Weight loss takes commitment and discipline. Both good attributes to have, right? You are that person in every other area of your life. Why not your health? Cambridge is a wonderful way to simplify the mechanics of reducing caloric intake while providing complete balances nutrition. This leaves you free to do the emotional work absolutely required to make this a permanent life change.
