So I finally broke down today after a talk I had with a friend and made an appointment with my doctor’s office for Friday. I had already taken the day off so I was glad to get in. I asked to only see the nutritionist this time, so maybe they will actually see me in less than a 30 minute wait. I refuse to be there more than two hours waiting to be called again! If that happens I can assure you I’m hunting a new doctor that is more respectful of my time. Will update on that.
I’ve been logging everything that goes into my mouth via MFP and maintaining my nutrient ratios and calorie intake. Some days I’m a little over on carbs, but not by too much. It mostly stems from fruit or my indulgence of cream of wheat some days. Hey it’s packed with iron! I seem to be right around 80g average a day on the protein.
Once again I’m stalled. Which is having its effects on my motivation. Annnnd I’ll just leave that topic there, because there’s no point in whining about my frustrations with this 2+ week stall – again.
I’m spending a good deal of time reflecting on the things that I am thankful for this month. I know a lot of people like to take the month of November and do this. I think it’s a good thing, and I started a couple of years ago.
Geez, I think about where I was a little over a year ago and am just blown away that I’m in the place that I am today. My marriage has flipped upside-down (in the best way), I finally took the leap and started a new career that I specifically wanted and managed to land, I’m almost done with my Master’s degree, I took this great big step for my health with VSG, and my relationship with God continues to grow every day. It’s AMAZING how things can look so bleak one day and then be golden the very next. Well, maybe not the next day, but all of the dramatic changes in my life are still so fresh and mind-blowing.
So, I’m just going to revel in my happiness and thankfulness this month and try not to worry about the scale.
More to come soon…
