Doc visit, mixed progress
Wednesday, October 20, 2010
Well, the doc wants me to document intake and exercise for a month before considering whether or not an increase in thyroid medication is appropriate. In 2 months time, my weight is the same but my measurements are not. My waist is down 1 inch, my belly is down 2 inches, and my thigh is down 1/2 inch. Seems to me there has to be some fat loss in that.
The main thing though, it that I have to get stricter if I want to show some progress in a month and NOT have the doc try to get me on the Hallelujah diet. That diet is a modified fast where you drink veggies all day (reconstituted barley grass and 8 glasses of fresh carrot juice and then have rice, fish, and veggies at supper)-- way too extreme and non-functional for me. So, I saw the scale move when I ate starches at lunch and dinner only. breakfast = cottage cheese and fruit, snack = protein, vegetable and fruit. I saw progress until the weekend when things changed and there were more grains and extras.
So, here I go, stepping it up. Fits well with my 12 week countdown plan!
