My journey with food addiction, binge eating and VSG weight loss surgery.
Thursday, March 14, 2013
We could not get enough money for the surgery. I was going to get a loan from a family member and it didn't work out. Instead, I am using that money to get healthy. so far I have been to the endocrinologist, ENT and today a new therapist that specializes in food addiction. I have an appointment for a back center and a new dr. to check for an autoimmune disorder next week. I need to get healthy period, not just with my weight. My Endocrinologist recommends MediFast due to my PCOS so it looks like I am joining Lyn and I am getting started on that. So far I have lost only 9 pounds in 2 weeks, but at least that's something. I have not had any sugar AT ALL in 17 days. Still have the cravings. I'm sure that is in my mind and not my body. I will not lie and say I am not still disappointed with not getting my revision, but I am ready to face this addiction as best I can. Win or fail. I also can't say I have faith in myself because I don't. If history and stats tell me anything, I have a 97% chance of failure but that does not give me a ticket to give up.
Pick of the day... Enjoying my son's spring football game.
Glad to be able to walk around enough to get there and enjoy the moment.
