Some days I wondered if I would survive. I did not have time to dwell on my worries, however, because I was raising my grandchildren. Thankfully, I have good coping skills. Though my grandchildren are brilliant and have some coping skills, tragedy hit at a vulnerable time of life. My granddaughter worries about being alone in the house, an understandable feeling after a house up the street was just robbed.

Second, try to choose a realistic timeline for losing weight. It took years to put on those excess poinds. Don’t expect to lose them all in a month! Get a good idea of how much weight you should reasonably expect to lose each week or month by reading your diet book thoroughly and following its guidelines.

23.Does your plan require step-up therapy or prior authorization? Step-up therapy means using drugs in a series of stages or steps in order to treat your condition. For example if you have GERD your plan may not cover Nexium unless you have previously tried ranitidine (Zantac) and/or omeprazole (Prilosec) first. Prior Authorization means that for certain drugs, your plan will not cover the drug without first reviewing your medical and drug history to determine if your treatment steps have been appropriate.

First, define your goals. Don’t just think, “I’ve got to lose some weight.” Pick a target, even if it’s a moving target. Some dieters like to think in increments, for instance, losing 20 poinds, then then reestablishing a new goal until they arrive at a weight level they feel most comfortable with. Other dieters-to-be are more daring. Choosing a weight loss goal of 100 pounds might seem impossible for some, but for other dieters, it’s their best and most direct strategy. Set a goal that you feel most comfortable with and stick with it.
