Frustrated again

Saturday, June 11, 2011

I do not blog often, but I have to get my frustration out in the open.
I had several appointments with doctors this past week, to top it all off I finally had scheduled the colonoscopy my doctor wanted me to have, so I started the prep on Thursday, only had sugarfree jello, 10 calories per serving, I had 4 servings all day then I had to drink half (8 oz) of the nastiest stuff I ever drank mixed with 8 oz of water and followed that with additional 32 oz of water, within the hour I was in the bathroom getting rid of all the waste in my colon.
Next morning I had to finish the rest of the prep followed by 32 oz of water and nothing else not even coffee and again the bathroom called within an hours several times, I got to the surgical center at 0930 and stepped on the scale and can you believe I gained a pound, how can that be, I had nothing to eat for 36 hours plenty of fluids but also plenty of bathroom runs and I gained, that is enough to make one cry and say the heck with it all why do I even keep trying.

    I get really frustrated with the scale - I have to really work to remind myself that the scale isn't the best measure for how I am doing. I have to give up quick results - and know that over time, if I run a calorie deficit that the weight will come off. At my age, it is just going to take time. I really feel for you after having suck a miserable procedure you'd think Karma would at lest give you a water weight loss - sheesh.

    Hi..is it possible your home scale weighs you heavier than the Doc's scale?
    I know it is sometimes not fair that us women have to deal with such a big weight fluctuation!
    When my other half found out he was borderline diabetic some years back he took off 24 pounds in a month! I still haven't gotten over that! ha ha
    Hope all goes well with you.
