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 now...like 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.
