She's come undone

March 13, 2011

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.
