Today I go to see a new pain MD. I am hoping that he will agree to take me as a patient and that he will be willing to help me meet my pain management needs and goals. That makes two MD visits in two days. I am really feeling wiped out...not at all like showering and getting dressed and taking the hour long ride to the MD. The only good part about it is that my dad is driving me. I love spending time with him. He is my superhero.
So this marks day three of my Eat to Live plan. I weighed myself yesterday and I weighed the low number of the five pounds I've been shedding and regaining. If I can break through this lousy five pound plateau and go on to a lower number, I will be so happy. I have 22 lbs to go to get back to Onederland where I was at last December when I did the Eat to Live plan. I really need to do some self brain washing to make myself understand that this is NOT a temporary diet. This has to be a long term manner of eating. Women on this plan typically get down to 105-110 lbs. He promises that once you reach your body's ideal weight, the weight loss will automatically cease.
That brings me to my next question. In my basement, I have clothes from size 18-size 8. My plan for this week was to donate or pitch all my clothes smaller than a size 12...because I was feeling like I would never weigh that little again. But the truth is, if I can stay on track, I will likely be able to get back into a size 5 or smaller. Do I keep those clothes? Maybe I should put all the small clothes into my trunk and a big plastic bin I have downstairs. That way I will clear some space on my clothes rack and yet still keep those clothes. However if I do get down to that size, it will be so much fun to shop for my new skinny body. The clothes that I have of that size are outdated and probably not in the best shape. Maybe I will only keep a select few.
Sorry for my musing. I'm sure you don't care what I do with my clothes.
Have a great and Sparkling day!
