A fresh start!!!

OK so I warned you up front that I was lazy, and well I quit my diet. So I'm starting a new one. I checked into the Medical Weight Loss at my local doctors office and decided that I should give it a try because there are weekly check ins and a lot of accountability. I went to my first appointment yesterday and it was interresting. I will be working with my doctor to change my eating habits and learn how to count calories and other things.I will have monthly mesurements taken and weigh ins. I weighed in at 259lbs. She gave me a few great web sites that helps with counting the calories, as well as keeping track of food intake and I'll post links to them for those who are interrested as well as post the web page of the program here in Mt. Airy.

The biggest issue I had with the program is the once a week shots I will be eventually giving my self. I decided to get the shots at the clinic untill I get used to it. You see I'm beyond terrified of needles and I was shaking by the time the doctor was ready to give me mine. The shots are HCG injections into the stomach. It gives me the creeps just thinking about it. I will also be taking a diet pill suggested by the doctor. There are lots of rules for me to follow. I am excited about this program and hope it will help even a lazy person lose weight.

  1. Sounds great Ash, except for the injections and diet pills part, sounds a little dangerous, but I guess the Doc knows what he's doin'. I wish you the best of luck, I know you can do it!
