I had brain surgery in April and was put on steroids for 3 months. I gained 22 lbs. I am now on daily medication that can make you gain weight. My first mini goal is to lose 1/2 of my steroid weight gain. I had this hope that having my surgery would cause weight loss, especially since I wasn't at all hungry for week.
So I need to prove to myself that I can lose weight despite the drugs I am on. 11lbs would feel amazing, and would let me stop saying "oh, it's really hard to lose weight with the drugs I am on so I might as well not try."
I am going to WW meeting this Thursday. I didn't like the program years ago but I know it's different now. I am convinced if I can give up on cream in my coffee, that will be half the battle. 1 qt of 1/2 and 1/2 is about 3500 calories and I drink at least one of those a week.
But I am looking for a substitute...for coffee, something with ritual. I think I'm going to learn how to make macha which is a kind of green tea. I need my drinking experience to feel like a real break from whatever I'm doing.
Wish me luck!
