    OK it's that time of year. What are you going to change, do or try to make 2009 a better year.

    Me it's the I'm going to loose the weight again. I did get a new elliptical machine. And I have started a healthy eating plan, made it thru a whole day.[​IMG]

    So what are you guys planning?

    My resolution is to save more than 20% of my total pay each month, so that I can speed up my time table of moving up to West Virginia and start up my own little homestead in the mountains. Its a lifetime goal, and I am only 26 so its totally doable.

    Possibly gaining courage to get the Lap Band surgery done!

    I would like to start using up all my fabric and yarn stash. Not buying any more unless it has a specific project to be used for.

    Also, dh and I plan to start digging ourselves out of all of our old debt. We have a plan in place and this should happen easliy. In our nearly 9 years of marriage, we've never been out of debt nor had a decent savings. 2009 is our year to start this!

    In my educated opinion....Lap bands only work if you eat small portions and exercise regularly...So..if you have the will power to do that, you may as well forgot the surgery and eat right and take exercise.
    So... If you don't mind I'd like to offer my services as a nutritional consultant. I can e-mail you some paperwork to fill out so I can get your general health level. Then, after you see your Doctor for a checkup and tell him/her you want to diet and exercise and get an OK, Then we can work on a change in your eating and setup an exercise plan.

    My goal for all my clients is to improve health first then weight loss will happen on it's own. I believe in SLOW weight loss. No miricle pills, powders, shakes, starvation diets, etc...just good food, exercise, viatmins and minerals, and small changes in habits over time.

    I don't believe in surgical weight loss. It's dangerous and costly, and not nessicary in 98% of all patients. Many times the DR say "Loose 90lb and we'll do the operation.." If a person can loose 90 lb from diet and exercise, Why can't they loose 150lb by doing the same thing? Instant gratification....People didn't gain 300lb over night, why do they expect to loose it over night?

    Anyway, If you want to, click on my website and send me an e-mail.

    Sorry, I hijacked the thread. I has a soapbox to get on. Now I'm done.
