Waiting is so boring


on 10/11/17 10:50 am, edited 10/11/17 12:23 pm

So I'm sitting here waiting for my next appointments with the dietician and social worker with the Hamilton group. Those appointments arent for another 2 months. Im so excited that time seems to be at a stand still. I called for cancellations and none so far. But I will keep trying. I hate waiting!

Thats my bit for today ?

Yes, the waiting is hard. Painfully hard!

I hope you're able to move your appointments up. :)

Just remember it is SO worth it in the end!

I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday!

I know how you feel. I am still waiting for my initial set of appiontments. No appointment dates yet to even look forward too. They said it will likely not happen till Feb next year. I had my orientation in Sept.

I had my orientation in July 2016 and did not have any appointments until March 31, 2017. It's a long wait up until that point but once you get appointments then things get moving. Hope this helps.

I had my first appointment Nov 30th of last year. Surgery was yesterday. I know it seems like it so long, but it's not. Everything you'll experience in the next year is going to set you up for success. Slow is best. It'll be here in a blink of an eye. :)

I am at a different stage but still waiting as well. It is hard when you are ready for the next stage of your life.

Hi Squishy

You can call and see if you can get those appointments moved up. Just call once a week and see if there are any cancellations. Even if you don't get a cancellation it helps pass the time since you have something to do every week.

Also, take the time now to really focus on changing your eating habits. The more you are incorporating the changes the better your Dietician appointment will go.

Good luck and it is worth the wait!

Waiting is the worst! And I hated being told to be patient. Instead of being patient I reccommend trying to make changes and loae as much weight as you can.

While you are bigger you lose weight more rapidly - you will thank yourself later, when you get close to your goal!
