Fourth week on Medical Weight Loss

Monday, February 15, 2010

Well, today began my fourth week. It's been easy some days, and much more difficult on others. According to the scale at the clinic, I have lost 9.5 pounds so far, and my scale at home says 10. I'm happy. I'll be happier when I reach my goal, but I've never been able to drop weight like this and still be eating. However, I'm feeling a slump coming on. Even though I'm losing weight, some days I just want junk. It takes tremendous effort to not throw in the towel. Is it going to be like this forever? I know that I'm already learning better eating habits, but am I going to always be thinking about food? Forever? That's how I feel right my life revolves around food. Am I eating the right amount? Am I eating the right things? What will happen if I have a cookie? Ugh. Dieting sucks.

    Awesome work on the 10 - as for thinking about food all the time... well, I don't know - Obviously food is something we can't eliminate from our lives 100%. I'm just kinda hoping that as we learn to make better decisions, it'll feel more natural to do the right thing then only splurge on special occassions.
