Mighty Mounjaro Journey


If you were expecting a graphic design blog on the latest design projects or insights on new trends, you are going to be sorely disappointed. This is my journal on a new weight loss drug that got FDA approval in April 2022.


I'm a (gulp) middle-age woman who has been on a LOT of diets over the years. Some healthier than others and some downright dangerous. That last wake up call made me a lot more wary of trying anything else. I learned to listen to my stomach, my body and now my heart when it comes to weight loss attempts.


I hit my all time high three years ago and I wasn't in a place to fight anymore. It hurt my hips and knees like no other just to clean the house - let alone exercise. Carrying the weight was SO unhealthy but for the moment I was able to keep the scale from increasing any MORE. Not something to be proud of, but in my world that was a positive to count.


Then my regular GP and I talked about Mounjaro and EVERYTHING is changing! This weight loss is such a GREAT feeling so I wanted to create a space to share the journey in a modest way. I hope it can be an encouragement to anyone reading this.


I'm going to share not just the stages of the shot dosages and the side effects but also my food strategy and any exercise. That last part is nothing extraordinary. I have a sedentary profession, and right now my body can only tolerate a little walking but I'm hopeful that will change. Right now I feel like I'm reading a really good book and I can't wait to get to the end!

Be inspired and come join me on this life changing ride!
