Feeling Better... I Think...
Since my last post, my back is much better. My neck has healed for the most part, although I've had many ups and downs since then.
I have taken the plunge and joined Weight Watchers with (more accurately FOR) my daughter. She is only 13, but is overweight and really needs to get it under control. I talked to our group leader and was assured that even though I have unstable blood sugar, WW will work as long as I eat my protein regularly and watch my carbs.
I was pretty happy - our 2nd meeting was yesterday and I knew my middle was smaller ;)
Imagine my disappointment to learn that I had lost one - ONE - pound. ONE POUND??? I had been hungry, dizzy, kept track of everything and ONE POUND??
My daughter, bless her heart, lost four pounds. I rejoice with her and for her because she will be a diabetic soon if we don't get this under control. She is now MY inspiration as I was ready to chuck the whole thing!
I know I can't, of course, for her sake, but it's sure hard to think that I only lost one pound in my first week. Usually, people lose at least 2-3 pounds that first week. So, I asked my doctor and he said that with my messed up blood sugar problems, it's to be expected. In other words, it may take me a long time to get this under control.
But, at least I know what to expect now so I will be patient and continue to follow the program. Let's see, I have a program for eating now (and I follow ALL of these!) for weight loss, adrenal fatigue, insulin resistance, and digestive problems... LOL! No wonder I am feeling so aggravated!
