Today I signed my life away to Sound Health Solutions. And in return I got a thin binder with some sheets of paper in it :).

I worked with the scheduling folks to get my trainer appointments set up. For now I'll be working out with Tracy at 7:30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and 9am on Saturdays. That might change once my work schedule changes to part-time.

My first appointment is tomorrow. In addition, my first dietitian appointment is tomorrow as well as my first "behavior change" appointment. So I'll be spending a good chunk of the late afternoon/evening at SHS tomorrow.

Today I met with Dr. Gough and she took a "before" picture, took my measurements and talked to me about my goals. So here they are:

Exercise: Be able to run a 5K in less than 30 min
Nutrition: Learn how to eat so I can lose weight, then maintain it, without having to count calories - she called it "eating intuitively".

They have an Access database to hold participant info- I noticed some typos on the forms, and thought there might be an easier way for it to work. Maybe if I like it there, I'll offer to fix it for them :)

I'm looking forward to really getting started tomorrow.

Today I walked to work (30 min), then walked to a meeting in another building (about 20 min round trip) and walked to SHS (25 min). Not bad - the new Timbuk2 messenger bag is working well, even with the laptop inside.

I'll let you know if I reconsider tomorrow after 3 hours straight of what I affectionately call "Fat Camp".


  1. This program sounds like they do so much for you! That's awesome. I think the more support you have the better off, it's hard to go at it alone! I just had a dress fitting last weekend, and I think the dress actually feels tighter than it did before (so much for maintaining weight!) So now I'm in the home stretch of about a month and I'm back on South Beach (just for a month, to prevent any more gaining weight) Wish me luck!

  2. Ooh, good luck w/ South Beach. I never could get past the brutal first 2 weeks but after that it seemed like it wouldn't be too bad. Anyway, they say that brides tend to lose weight anyway right before the wedding from all the running around/errands that you do right before. Good luck, and I'll see you soon!


I love comments, so please leave me your thoughts. Thanks in advance!
