I saw my p-doc yesterday, I'm doing pretty good except for my anxiety. Or at least I'm doing good this week. So we are going to keep things as is for the next two months, as they are part of my rough time of year, and then meet back and see how I'm doing. Of course if anything happens, I can see him sooner.
Surgery update: there is no up date
we are waiting on insurance to approve/disapprove it. I didn't know they had already tried and it had been denied, this is the appeal. So I'm nerves and worries over it. Not much I can do and worrying doesn't help, so I'm trying not to think about it. I just wish I was more involved in the process so I knew what the heck was going on.
I go to the obesity clinic today and pick up my shakes, then I'm off to my new doctor's office to see the NP for the first time for my blood sugar. It's been dropping, and making me feel horrible. I can get it back up with sugary food, but it is worrisome. I may be able to get completely off of Diabetes meds, as long as I keep eating the way I am. Yesterday to keep my blood sugar even, I munched on trail mix all day. It worked, but it is wholly unrealistic for me to munch on trail mix all day long and expect to lose weight.
I've not been able to work out because of my blood sugar. Exercise can help lower your blood sugar, and works very well on mine usually. So if my blood sugar is in the 60's or 70's, no way am I going to work out and make it go lower! I'm really hoping we can fix the problem so I can start working out!
I had some motivation at the p-doc's office. I hopped on their scale and it read 241! I'm 264 and have been plateaued there for a while now (especially with not being able to exercise). I was surprised at how that number made me feel. I want to get down to 241 and beyond, and I was ecstatic to see that number even though I knew it was false. So I've made that my goal, 241. I'm so pumped to make it happen.
So here is a short list of things I'm going to be doing over the weekend:
Start working out again once blood sugar is more stable
Add strength training and yoga to my day
monitor my water intake to get my full day's water in, buy water bottle if necessary.
Not much, but some things I must be doing. I can tell I'm dehydrated, need to increase my water intake and I found the perfect water bottle for it. It has by what time you should have drank each amount of liquid to get your full 64 fl oz in. I'm hoping the NP will say that I can start working out. I want to reach my goal. I feel very driven and motivated.
Stop waiting. I've been waiting on the surgery to really work on losing weight and several other things. Waiting stops now. I've been hoping for this surgery for months now, at a standstill. Doing what I'm supposed to be doing, yes, till recently when I restarted coffee and stopped exercising. That ends today. I'm going to get back to what I'm supposed to be doing and add a few things in slowly too (yoga, strength training, walking several times a day instead of just once...) I can't keep just waiting around for something to happen. I need to make it happen. Carpe Diem!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog! I hope you have a blessed day!
