20 lbs. Lost, Week 8 of Cardiac Risk Reduction

Tonight was week 8 of the Risk Reduction Program. Both Heidi and Melinda feel that if I feel ready for the surgery, that they feel I am ready for it. Heidi said she and Melinda would touch base last night, and she'd give me a call to let me know definitively next Monday when she is in again, but that is how they both felt. I'm excited, and nervous/scared. I’ve lost just about 20 lbs. during my time in the Risk Reduction Program.

I have really just tried to keep my focus on being healthier, because that is what is going to keep me alive while I raise my son...not specifically losing the weight. If I'm doing the right things, with support, the weight will follow suit. As such, I just need to keep doing what I'm doing.
