I have not been on this website in weeks. I'm actually surprised to see so many responses to my last post. That first week I was not suppose to workout with only 500 calorie intake. That first weeks goal was to send my body into ketosis. With working out I am allowed 800 calories. Basically we are trying to see what is best for my body. Honestly I am getting frustrated and not seeing any results like I want. I switched to amino acid pills and bumped my calorie intake to 1000 calories a day and within a week I lost 1.7 lbs. the nurse was not impressed and switched me back to the appetite suppressors to control my cravings. My exercise is nearly nonexistent since my lower spine is compressed and causing sciatic nerve pain down both legs. I can't get in to see a spinal doctor for another 2 weeks. I'm on a muscle relaxer and night time nerve pain pill to help me sleep. So much going on, including anxiety, and stress of not being able to find a job in this painful state I'm in. Funds are running low and my daughter's birthday is in two weeks. I would be lying if I said I don't cry. Please pray for a miracle. I know God doesn't give us more than we can handle, but I wish he didn't trust me with so much to deal with. About to buckle. Barely hanging on.
