My First Epic Fail - And Some Medical News

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

And hopefully my last truly epic fail, but I am okay with smaller failures. I told my sister that I would go to Endless Shrimp with her one time before she had to go have her surgery and I did eat the endless shrimp, knew I would. And here I, hypocrite that I apparently am, said I couldn't see how people could eat 10000 calories in a day (or is that show 10000 calories in a sitting?). emoticon Yes, I get that it is only once or twice that I do it, but still I shouldn't rag on other people doing it if I am gonna. I ended up with a total of 8922 calories to day, ugh. The number alone just makes me mad at myself. I will definitely be doing way better about staying within the calories that I needed to stay within.
The good thing is that I still did my mile walk today, after eating that much. The only reason I was able to was that I also had to walk all over Menards to get the stuff to fix my closet door, and the Wal-mart to pick up my prescription, and I deliberately parked further out than I normally would. The great part is that the mile only took me 14 minutes, although my sister's dog Brody probably did like twelve miles to my one the way he was running around.

On the Medical front....
I got the results back from the blood test that my doctor wanted to do to verify that I have PCOS (poly cystic ovary syndrome). And the tests proved that I do have PCOS and the medication that I picked up was for it (Metformin, if anyone knows anything about it). So now I am hoping that the medication, changing my diet, and starting in on exercising will help me shed the weight. The nurse who called me about the medication had known someone who used it and it helped them, so I have some hope. I am really thinking right now that this time it is going to work!

    It's great that you immediately refocused on a positive solution and walked and parked farther away. emoticon

    Good luck on the journey to lose some weight and change your health! Don't be too harsh on yourself about the 'epic incident.'

    I'm not sure what else you ate today but I would truly be shocked and amazed if you were able to eat 9,000 calories in shrimp alone!
