How To Take Off 100 lbs (or MORE)! Ep 2 Homework

To sustain you through the hard times, you have to find your deep motivation--your Why.  Your Why is probably not what you think it is.  It is not usually related to appearance.  Whatever it is, it needs to be vivid and we need to make it crystal clear and able to be summoned at the smallest need.Human beings like homeostasis--that is, we like things to…

  2. Clear your triggers: if you always eat popcorn while watching tv, switch to a bowl of grapes.  Stop watching commercial TV, it is full of triggering commercials.  Watch your shows on Netflix or Hulu instead. If you always…

How To Take Off 100 lbs (or More) Episode 1 Introduction

I created a YouTube video series where I show you what has been working for me as I’ve taken off 180 lbs so far.  As you can see, I’ve still got more than 100 lbs to go.  So we are going to do this together!

Really quick, to share my story, I have been fat all my life.  I was a cute fat baby, a chubby toddler, and then I was the fattest girl in…

My up in coming surgery is going to be very complicate. I don't usually talk about it because of how scared I am.  But your son's journey has given me some faith in the healing powers of surgery.  I have to lose 20 to 30 more pounds before I can be ready for surgery first off.  That is why I do not yet have a date.  The surgery it self is a three day procedure in which the first day they harvest one of my ribs from my left side.  The second day they remove four of my lumbar vertebrate and form the rib into the correct vertebrate shapes. On the third day they pin or screw every other vertebrate to the next as to correct the thorasic curve and stop the progression of all of the curves.  The surgeon is unsure if I will be in the hospital for a week or six months.  He said on the best case scenario I could be up and walking and on my way home with in three days. I feel that is just a tad unrealistic.  But I am trying to be positive about the whole thing. This surgeon has an 80% success with no paralysis and the other 10% had loss of sensation or movement in one limb at worse.  He developed this special surgery in the 80 and has perfected it.

 I have finally gotten my family into a position where they can handle life without me for a bit and I am finally really trying to get the weight off so that this can happen. It is still a little nerve racking because I am a semi educated person and I know how many muscles they will be cutting threw to get to my spine to begin with. I know that my muscles are stretched and shortened do to the erratic shape of my spine. What I did not know is how powerful the bodies ability to heal is.  Hearing of others going threw it and doing it raw is exciting and well inspiring.  I am hoping to be ready mind body and spirit by august of this year.  I have finally found a way to control my weight and I think within the next three or so months I could be down to my surgery weight.  I would love to hear more about your sons and your experience. 

Thank you for getting in touch with me,
