Medifast Day 2.1

Thursday, January 23, 2014

emoticon I feel better today, more... empty. Yea empty is a good word for it. The scale this morning already went down since yesterday and that makes me extremely happy. After dinner I got caught up in watch My 600 LB Life for a few hours. It comes on TLC. Oh man. Now that is probably the saddest thing I've ever seen. The first show was about a really pathetic woman who had no real plans to change and she kept blaming the doctor and calling the nutritionist a moron. Most likely she will die soon.

Well it got me thinking about how truly emotional this journey is and how after I get to my new goal weight, will I have another depression like I just did? I certainly don't want to go back to that place anytime soon.. or ever. I'm most likely going to start seeing a regular therapist. I'll call my insurance at lunch and see if they cover any of the session fee. It's difficult right now because the bonus I was counting on didn't come through, I had to spend over $500 for my new glasses, the $700 something citizenship fee coming up, my mom borrowing money, insurances and car note, and my sad little vacation plans.

What's my sanity worth, I wonder?

54 Days Left.

    I'm glad you are feeling better, but I totally support your decision to seek therapy. I agree with the other comments....this is a very emotional journey as well as a physical one, and when you combine that with everything else that goes on in our lives, sometimes it is just overwhelming.

I just started therapy now that we have settled in to our new place. So far I've only had one session, but it was a relief to talk to someone who is just there to listen and help, not judge. I know it can be expensive, but keeping our sanity is worth it.

    I see a therapist. Therapy is hard. My copay went down this year to 10 bucks a session. Thanks Obama! LOL, I really don't know if he is responsible, but it is much more affordable and my therapist is great.

I also watch My 600 pound life and I know that it would not be that hard to get there. Eat a little more, exercise a little less. Pounds would come on. And they way some of them shop. Carb and fat overload. What kind of frosting should I get for my brownies?

I am sure that your money woes will work themselves out.

    Glad to hear this! Sounds like you need someone to confide in. And BrainyBlonde5 is right, the journey is both mental and physical. emoticon

    I'm so glad that you're considering seeing a therapist. I am a big supporter of therapy. I think that a lot of people could benefit from having a person to talk to, a safe outlet to bounce feelings off of. There is some stigma that you have to be 'depressed or crazy' to go but I don't think that is true.

It can be expensive but it can be worth it. I have been going for 4 years. I started when I was very depressed and suicidal and going through a difficult marriage. When I got divorced and "happy" again people thought I would quit going but I still go because I enjoy it and it helps. I still have many things to talk about and worth through.

I hope your insurance does cover a portion of it. My insurance doesn't but I was able to find a therapist who is younger/newer and was willing to take a reduced payment. Also, sometimes takes finding the right person too.

Also, great job being down a little all ready with being on Medifast only one day!
