Yup, the riot act. That's what I will hear later this afternoon when I have my doctor's appointment.
You see, the last time I saw my physician was last November or so, when I had gotten my weight down to about 218 and was exercising every day. She was quite pleased with my progress.
Today? Not a prayer of her being pleased. In late November I stopped exercising and my weight has now ballooned back up to 246.
Do I have some valid excuses? Yeah, I probably do.......but honestly, this is just how I react to stressful times. No exercise and the weight comes back and I feel like I "deserve" to eat whatever I want. I know I shouldn't--I even feel guilty when I do, just apparently not guilty enough to stop myself.
So........today will be the riot act. Again............I almost thought about canceling the appointment until I got my act more together (or lost the weight I gained back), but then I figured I might as well go face the music. She will tell me what she always tells me--my blood pressure would be much better if I lost weight. I would feel better if I only would exercise. I would sleep better if I ate less and exercised more. Yada, yada, yada............
Been there, done that, bought the t-shirt, lol!
One thing of note--my physician is extremely slender to the point of ugly. Her husband, who is my husband's physician, is built the same way. I have actually toyed with the idea of seeking out a "more filled out" physician, or at least one who might have had some experience with the pitfalls of trying to lose weight.
Anyway, wish me luck!
