Today, I had my first dietician appointment of three, requirements to be met before surgery.  

This wasn’t a typical nutrition class. I have to relearn everything I know about eating and chewing. Drinking. Everything.  For anyone out there who thinks I’m taking the easy way out, they haven’t done their homework. 

I have. Now I have to put all this into motion.  I am now on a 1200 calorie a day diet between now and surgery (between 10-12 weeks down the road). The funny thing is, I can barely eat that many calories per day and I still can’t lose weight. I will implement the changes anyway. Habits are good to form now, rather than later.

I can’t wait to be further down the road, but I want to do this right, so step by step it is!



I seek to live, breathe & work creatively. Late bloomer. I survived breast cancer and so much more. I will meet each challenge w/determination, badassery & sass!

One thought on “ONE STEP CLOSER

  1. Hang in there. More than once I tried to lose weight by eating 600 – 800 calories a day. Guess what? Your body won’t let you! I finally started to lose weight when I made sure I was eating no less than 1200, no more than 1400, everyday. Also made sure that there was lots of protein, fiber, and healthy veggie/fruit carbs. And drank the dreaded water. Yuck!! Good luck with the new plan!
