April - Moving Forward
Thursday, April 14, 2016
I have my second appointment with the Dietitian on Monday. I feel really good about the last three weeks. I've been making it to the gym at least four days every week, and I've been sticking with my dietary program at least 98% of the time.
The ARNP who coordinates with the surgical team told me that the dietitian has to clear me before I can meet the surgeon and so now I'm really eager to get past the dietary part so I can keep moving forward. It's sometimes difficult to see the big picture because the process is kind of drawn out over several months.
I'm still not seeing a lot of weight loss on the scale, but considering that I have PCOS and insulin resistance (IE pre-diabetes), it's really hard for me to drop weight even when I eat a restricted number of calories and take something to help control the blood sugar. *sigh* So I am hoping that won't hold me back too much. I'm assuming that U of I has a contingency plan for folks like me since I won't be the first (or last) pcos/pre-diabetes patient they're ever going to see.
I have a list of "you can't eat these things ever again" for one reason or another, and it will be so much easier for me after surgery because I won't want to put myself in the hospital or deal with digestive issues because I effed up.
Anywho, my cat Osiris is trying to say hello to everyone, so I suppose I should get offa here and go pet him for a bit.
Later, everyone. Stay shiny.
