Dr's orders

My neurologist sent me to see another Dr. because of ongoing bad back problems. So I went to see the surgeon on Tuesday and I'm going for a breast reduction in November, that should help with my back problems. The Dr. advised me that I should try and lose 20 lbs. before having the surgery, it would help with the healing process and I would also be happier with the results overall.

I was kind of glad that he told me that, at least he was honest enough, some people might've been offended but I figure it just might be the kind of incentive I need to lose the extra weight.

I plan on starting on this journey next Monday, give myself time to go to the grocery store and stock-up on healthy food. I'm an extremely slow loser and because of my handicap, osteoarthritis and my back problems the only exercise I can do safely is walking.

So here I go! Wish me luck!
