Yesterday, I went to see what is up with the weightloss and lifestyle specialist that my doctor referred me to. Wow oh wow!!! This is a huge, overwhelming change for me. 1st. The diet is in 3 stages. I only know about stage 1 which is for 2 weeks. I get most green vegetables, lean meats and eggs. That's it folks!!! Sort of like South Beach only more strict. I can do this. DH and I have been figuring out what we can and cannot have and making menus and shopping lists for beginning Tuesday. Next there is the physiotherapy, which is covered by my insurance. I still have to go meet the therapist and get all that figures out. Then , lastly, is the exercise program. They have a fully equipped exercise room and a trainer works with me 1 on 1 while I work at this. Again don't know all the details as I have to go for an orientation for all this. I did find out that my metabolism is in the normal range and that I am 5'3" tall. LOL I also found out that my BMI is close to 50 so we have lots of work to do. SO for right now I have a 2 week diet and then a weigh in and session again with the doctor and then ? WHo knows what but I am up for it all. Wish me luck.
