Weigh in #1 (Starting from 8-1-10)
8-7-10 : 324 to 319lbs (-5) My highest weight ever! I am going on record... this stinks. A person suggested that I eat this month as if there is no tomorrow. Eat whatever I want, whenever I want. To have a "last meal" everyday until my appointment on the 27th, at the Weight Loss Center. For 30 secs, I thought yeah! I could eat whatever I want and start to loss weight after the doctor consult. At 31 sec, I got real and thought my life starts now, not at the end of the month.
I have to lose 10% of my weight before surgery. It's part of the plan I will be on. WLS isn't the easy way to lose weight. It's not a "get out of jail card". If I'm serious about my weight, then it has to be now, Aug. 1st not when I go for my consultation at the end of the month.
So there is not going to be any last meals for me. I'm not going to gorge myself for the next 26 days. I started getting on plan now. I eat protein first, followed by veggies and if I'm still hungry, then carbs. Right now I haven't needed the carbs thankfully. I've been trying to chew my food 30 times which is rough! Talk about a tired jaw. And I try not to drink with my meals, which seems to be the hardest for me this past week.
Other things going on this past week... I went to get my pysch eval which consisted of a 560 true and false questionnaire aka personality test. And me talking with the Psychologist for a whole whopping 5 mins. I am in the wrong field! It was a $150 for the test, $35 co-pay for me and that doesn't count what he is going to bill insurance!!!!! And we want to know why the health care industry is going down the tubes. It is because of jokers like this one!!!! One the other hand, this was an easy, abet costly, hoop that I had to jump through for WLS. Also I picked up a medical necessary form from the doctor's office and I scheduled a pap for Sept 13th. So now I'm just waiting for the appointment of the 27th.
