Fat Ass Friday

Starting weight: 233
Last week's weight: 237.6
Current weight: 234.4
Weight +GAIN / -LOSS this week: -3.2
Total weight lost: +1.4

It's days like this when I feel a little spring in my step. 3.2 pounds in 4 days. It's amazing what the right eating modifications will do. I'm trying to do my best not to say I'm on a diet. A 'diet' is temporary. This is a lifestyle change. I've been working on it for a while, then I slipped - back into drinking Dr. Pepper and eating junk food. It's not that I don't enjoy eating healthy. I love the food I'm eating. My problem is the depression and the back pain. When I'm too depressed to get off the couch, I can't cook. When I do get off the couch to cook, I end up in crippling pain after 10-15 of standing in front of the stove. And I have to eat something, right? Is something bad better than nothing at all?

I've been able to extend my cooking time by putting a squishy floor mat down, but only by a few minutes. Last night, while I was chopping pineapple and cantelope, it hit again. And it was BAD. It didn't start bad and get worse, it went straight to worse. I was fine one minute, and the next I was grabbing the edge of the counter to keep myself from hitting the floor. And my doctor has told me that he can't do anything for me, and I need to go to another doctor. I was also told not to even come back about this problem. How crappy is that?

    Brandy - Yeah, it really sucks having to deal with health problems that affect your weight. Most of the time it feels as if the world is against you. I'm trying really really hard to take control.
