I just finished reading this Oprah Book Club book of years ago. Thank goodness for books on CD.
I thoguth this was an appropriate title for my blog this week as I have been flighty, and unfocused and lazy and have gotten behind in so many ways. I started my program with Dr. Schmidt at the Center for Weight Loss. It is harder than I thought it would be. I didn't realize how much my day centered around food. This decrease in caloric intake for the day has me undone for sure. I started on Friday and had "cheated" by 6pm Friday night. I was starving. I truly think my plan is too low for me. I am not a petite girl so I think I need more calories than your average person. I am calling her tomorrow to discuss. I can see why this is accelerated because you are on the verge of starvation. I can't see how that is good for you but she is a doctor and I have to check in with her weekly for tests so she must know something.
I do see my blood sugar numbers lower. Except for Saturday nigth which was my predetermined cheat night. I had a hot chocolate and that raised my sugar (sigh). Anyway, hopefully if I can make it through these 5.5 weeks, I will be a little thinner and my meds will be reduced. My college friends were in town, thus the cheat night. We hadn't been together in nearly 20 years. Oh, I guess that gives away my age. Anyway, Michelle raved about the pump as well. She said her mom has become a new person since she has been on it. Hmmm, all this praise in favor of getting the pump I wonder why everyone doesn't get one. I still await results from a blood test to see if I am approved for it so we continue on my plan for now and see how the Victoza works out.
Off to bed to dream of all the food I can't eat for the next few weeks. I need to retrain my brain to see the new look, the improved healthy and shopping I will get to do.
