My box from Optavia arrived today, so my journey toward taking back my health and obtaining optimal health begins tomorrow! I’m totally pumped about this journey.
Inside were all the fuelings I need to follow the 5 & 1 plan, which per the literature means I will lose 2-5 pounds a week the first week, then 2 pounds or so each week after, though individual results can vary (as in MORE coming off faster). Inside is also a great book and workbook for learning and making changes so I make healthy choices and get my health back. I’m really excited about this, and cannot wait to share my progress. Tomorrow I will post my starting weight (as per the scale with a photo – no cheating). Below is my before photo, which I’m not afraid to share either. Most folks swear I’m fine, but see, I’m 40 pounds over weight and it is NOT healthy. My blood pressure is creeping upward, and my body is not healthy like it should be. I am lucky in that I distribute my excess weight fairly evenly around my body, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t there and doesn’t need to take a hike. And healthy is more than weight, which this will help me achieve.
Check back as I head toward a new, healthier me!
