Dr. Gann's Diet of Hope
Friday, February 27, 2015
My last blog was November 1st, 2014. Over the past year I have lost and gained the same 10lbs over and over. I stopped blogging because amid all the success stories, I became frustrated and defeated. Yes, I bumped up my exercise, yes, I tried all the suggestions members and Spark offered. NOTHING worked. Add to the mix some health issues. One severely impacted my ability to walk for long distances and the other was an operation on my bottom teeth. For six weeks I had to eat soups and very soft foods. Lost 10 lbs and yet again...the weight started creeping back on.
I am not a quitter, but there becomes a point when one has to really reassess what they are doing. My head is flat from banging it on a wall. So, talked with my new Dr. (old one was absolutely NO help with my weight AT ALL) and she gave me a referral for Dr. Gann's Diet of Hope. I have to say I dragged my feet. I did not want to fail again, so I waited. Finally on Monday, I went. The appointment was interesting. They did all the usual things: weighing me, measuring my height, but they also did a AKG, tested my resting caloric expenditure, tested my blood and gave me a diet to follow for the next 7 days. I will go in once a week for the next 6 weeks.
The diet is much more severe than I expected. BUT, I have already started loosing weight. This is hard to stick to, but I am never hungry and am determined to make it work. I will let you know how it goes.
