Dr's appt ..

Friday, January 07, 2011

Well do I feel like I accomplished nothing today at the Dr's? You bet. I felt like a child lectured about how I eat and should exercise. She never heard a thing I said. I brought a menu sample of what I eat and told her how I exercise. And she picked apart every little thing she could find. Looked at me and said its about calories in and calories out. Well I think 2,500 calories out and 1340 calories in, I should be seeing some results after 2 1/2 months. She said the reason I gained might have been because of PMS. However she would run a few blood tests and see me again in 1 month. That I should pick up my exercise and lower my calorie intake to 1100 calories for a few days. But not to worry because I am healthy otherwise. And I look good. I have a nice shape and not bulging.

Thank God for my husband. He was the one who saw me struggling and urged me to see the Dr. He was waiting for me when I left the Dr's office and hugged me and suggested I seek the advise of another Dr. I love him for his support, however I will wait for test results and probably not go elsewhere. It was very humiliating for me in that office today. Mostly because it is an office owned by a family member.

I will not give up in my struggle to lose weight. I do feel healthier since I restarted exercising in Oct. Depression is gone and body aches are not as bad. I wallowed in self pitty tonight and hit the M&M's and cheetos. But I will work that off tomorrow and then some. If I have to exercise 4 hrs a day and live on 1,100 calories a day, I will do this. I eat healthy, mostly fresh vegi's and very little if no processed foods. I drink 8 - 10 glassed of water a day, no soda. I do not have high blood pressure, diabetes or high cholesterol.

I will not give up! I will succeed!

    I agree with your husband - get a second opinion. Another thing you might try is the Hilton Head Diet and the Body Flex (Greer Childers). I lost 4 lbs & 9 inches the first week. It's a very well balanced meal plan (with flexibility for substitutes) and an isometric/deep breathing exercise that only takes 10 minutes a day. I don't get a dime for recommending either - I just know they worked for me when I used them. Good luck!

    You know,when I first started an exercise routine back in January of 2010 I did not lose a single LB for almost 3 months.I kept telling my Dr. that I was exercising but could not lose.She just blew me off,which in turn made me angry,which made me more determined,which helped me make it through those early days of this new lifestyle!!!Finally in April of 2010 the LBs started coming off.Seems once I DID los weight the Dr was more willing to listen to me.She thought that I had Metabolic Syndrome,which is brought on by Meds,and NOT eating.Yeah,confusing I know...How does one gain an extra 50 LBS from not eating??LOL
    Now,I'm 6 LBS from goal.So take your frustration and turn it into a positive.Maybe you DO need to find another Dr,but that aside,don't stop the exercise and healthy eating,or your quest for this healthy lifestyle.Even if you are not losing you ARE conditioning your body and it IS benifitting from your efforts.Don't give up!!!
