I had my first visit to MGH's Weight Loss Center this morning. They took a bunch of blood and then I sat with a psychologist for an hour. Brought up alot of things I had hidden away. Definately a link between my overeating, lack of motivation and emotions. I then met with a nutritionist who asked me what I ate currently and what I ate when I was overeating/binging.
I go back next week to meet with the team that will include a medical doctor, nutritionist and psychologist. They'll present their recommendation.
In speaking with the psychologist, he feels I'm depressed. THat made me cry. I thought the zoloft I took was supposed to help that. He recommended I work with a therapist and referred me to the CBT clinic. Earliest appointment is April.
It's a start.
