I’m a big fan of Black and White when it comes to fashion. Half of my “skinny clothes” closet is White House Black Market. My current not-so-skinny closet only contains about 3 outfits (but I digress).
While I’m a huge fan of black and white as a clothing trend, there are some things that are just painful to see in black and white. One of those things is the amount of weight I need to lose…and today I came face to face with that number.
Here’s the scoop…
I went to see a biochemist today. This man specializes in helping you reach your healthy potential. He evaluated all kinds of levels within my body and gave me a full print out with things I can do to improve my health and my current levels.
He told me my adrenal glands were shot (not surprising news). My blood sugar was low. My thyroid wasn’t functioning correctly. He told me my potassium and magnesium levels were low. And he told me I had a major rest deficiency. In other words, not enough sleep and when I do sleep, I’m not sleeping well.
He provided me with lots of great info and told me what I need to do to improve my health. He also provided me with a black and white number of pounds that I need to lose.
My number is 73.
It seems huge and daunting. I’m pretty sure that’s like losing a 3rd grader.
But I’m committed. Starting tomorrow, the journey begins. Earlier bedtimes, less processed foods, regular exercise (once the vertigo goes away).
So who’s with me? Who is ready to tackle their “number”?
