Peace, Love, and the Controllable

In a world filled with uncertainties, one thing I've always strived to uphold is the mantra of "controlling the controllable." It sounds simple in theory, yet putting it into practice is a whole different ball game. But recently, I've embarked on a journey that's given me a tangible example of what it truly means to take charge of my life, and I couldn't be more excited to share it with you.

Enter Body Confidence Medical Spa and their transformative 8-week physician-led weight loss program, spearheaded by the incredible Dr. Stucki. When I first learned about this program, I was immediately drawn to its promise of not just quick fixes, but real, sustainable change. I didn't want a temporary solution that would leave me feeling dependent or defeated in the long run. I craved something that would empower me to make manageable, simple, and truly life-altering choices.

Now, one week into the program, I can already feel the winds of change blowing in my favor. But let me be real with you—this journey hasn't been all rainbows and sunshine. Keto, for one, is tough. The infamous keto flu hit me like a ton of bricks, leaving me feeling drained and depleted. But as they say, the darkest hour is just before dawn. And boy, did that dawn break gloriously.

Despite the initial hurdles, I've started experiencing a surge of energy that I haven't felt in years. Gone are the days of constant fatigue and midday naps. Instead, I find myself bounding through life with a newfound vitality that's nothing short of exhilarating.

Of course, it's not all smooth sailing. Adapting to a new exercise routine has its challenges, and my body has definitely been feeling the strain. But here's the thing—I'm a realist. I know that lasting change doesn't happen overnight, and I'm willing to put in the work, no matter how tough it gets.

With 75 pounds to shed, I understand that this journey is more of a marathon than a sprint. But that's okay. In fact, it's more than okay—it's healthy. I'm not just looking for quick results; I'm committed to making lifestyle changes that will stick with me for the long haul.

And the best part? This isn't just about fitting into a smaller dress size or reaching a number on the scale. It's about reclaiming my health and vitality, about being there for my loved ones, and about rewriting the narrative of my own life.

I can't believe I just put that out there. 😬 🫣 But I promise to be open and honest throughout this journey.

My goals:

  • Provide weekly progress updates during the program, transitioning to monthly updates upon completion, to track and share my journey effectively.

  • Foster open conversations and serve as a valuable resource for others by creating opportunities for dialogue and support.

  • Achieve my target weight loss of -75lbs within a year, recognizing that the timeline may need adjustment as I progress, and refining the goal accordingly.

  • So, if you're curious about embarking on your own journey to wellness, consider this your invitation. Let's be partners in progress, supporting each other every step of the way. Because while the road ahead may be challenging, I have unwavering faith in the power of resilience, determination, and the human spirit. And together, we can achieve anything.
