So...a few months ago I was in a real struggle trying to lose any weight. My cardiologist gave me a pack of papers and told me to read them and cut my portions. So I did. I went back in a month and gained weight. She said i must not be taking accountability for what I am eating. This made me upset because I was really trying. Cut to even 2 meals a day. I asked should I only eat once? She said yes if that's what it takes. So I cut back more and only ate one meal at 4pm every day. I went back and gained more weight. Again I got the lecture about not taking accountability for what I was eating. This broke me into tears. I got angry inside. I said to her if you think I just sit on my couch eating Twinkies you are wrong. I cannot completely stop eating. I was swollen everywhere to the point i could barely get an old pair of gym shoes on my feet. I begged her for another option. She sat for a moment and scrolled through the computer. Looks at me and says that a medication she prescribed me can cause swelling. She changed it. Within 30 days i had dropped 25lbs. Now 6wks later and it's 35lbs gone. And guess what...i eat 3 meals a day. The weight is falling off. I can't wait to see her and show her that it wasn't me. I was giving it all i could. And I will continue to do so.
