I went to the doctor on Monday to see how my progress has been since March 2013. Well the doctor was not very happy with my numbers. Although I have maintained the inches lost and the small amount of weight loss South Beach has not helped me. He has requested strongly that I stop any and all high protein diets because it is really affecting my kidneys. So he suggested I reconsider the weight loss surgery, either banding or sleeve, not so much the bypass. So I am really having a hard time considering such radical treatment. I am not against it for others, but not i can't wrap my head around it for me. I need to lose 80-90 lbs and I am so frustrated and heartbroken. I don't know what else to do, I can't figure out how to exercise and stick with it. I was consistent on the elliptical for 8 months with no changes. I went from 5 minutes all the way to 45 minutes by the time I was finished the 8 months. My doctor says my insulin resistance and pre-diabetes is a huge barrier for weight loss for me. PCOS is making it impossible...so am I just making excuses and accepting my fate? I don't know where to go for help, I don't know what else to try and I have been really honest about my efforts. I didn't do any exercise in almost a year. If you read any of my previous blogs there were physical limitations. So now it's a new year, and I really want to do everything I can to drop the weight because this time next year I may not have a choice about surgery, but it would be kidney surgery, or dialysis. I WILL NOT ACCEPT THAT!
I feel bad as well that I keep posting on here and feel like I give nothing in return. Just overall feeling down. Any help really is very appreciated :)
