tunibell Posted December 30, 2015 Share Posted December 30, 2015 DAY -2: PREPARING FOR SUCCESS Who I am and what I'm doing here I am a 41-year old mother of two looking to improve my health and avoid the family legacy of obesity and diabetes. I have psoriasis (historically very mild and currently in total remission) and celiac disease, both of which put me at increased risk for further autoimmune issues. I have extensive environmental allergies (for which I will soon be receiving allergy shots) and a history of annoying sinus issues. I've also been experiencing interstitial cystitis symptoms since June, which is most likely related to my very overactive immune system. I'm planning to take my "official" before photos/weight/measurements tomorrow, but I weigh roughly 136 lbs, which is about 8 lbs outside the healthy range for someone of my height. Step 1: Choose Your Start Date I'm beginning on January 1, 2016. Aside from one child's birthday, it looks to be a month that is light on events, which is always helpful. Step 2: Build Your Support Team Done. I've got an incredibly supportive husband and network of friends, and now I've got you all to keep me on track. Step 3: Get Your House Ready Since I live with three other people (none of whom are participating fully), I've done a brief kitchen clean-up. I cleared one shelf for myself and filled it with approved pantry items. Over the next two days, I plan to clean out my refrigerator and make a full week's menu.
