No surgery!!!!

Wednesday, January 06, 2010

I went for a new doctor consult on yesterday and had all my previous doctors info with me. This doctor disagreed that I should be on Starlix, the diabetic drug. He stated I needed a more aggressive weight loss plan. He wants me to not even think about bariatric surgery. This doctor is the OBGYN who cared for me during my pregnancy.

I figured that since I was being referred to the weight loss center by my primary then it would not hurt to see him again. He has associates who are certified in the clinical weight loss program. I felt really comfortable with him and now I am reassured.

We did discuss my eating regimen and have come up with something that should be very simple to follow. I will discuss it later once I begin to see results. But we discussed upper body exercise 3 times a week for 30 minutes until my knee is stronger.

It is an investment in my future and I am signing on to do his program for 6 weeks. I feel really good about this. I am even ready to set goals/rewards.

    I am glad you won't be having the surgery. That scares me to death. Even though I can't exercise, I would never, ever consider that surgery. I know someone that had it
    and did great for awhile and started eating again and has gained all the weight back plus some. He didn't even give it a chance. And Medicaid paid for it because he would have died without it. Now it looks like he will die with it.

    No surgery! That is awesome! It sounds like you're right where you need to be and in the right place and I know you'll get the blessing! If it was meant to be then it would've gone through smoothly. Trust God and keep on keepin' on!
