Surgeon TestimonialJorge Acosta, MDMy surgery was done by Dr. Eldo Frezza. He turned out to be pretty bad. My insurance company assigned me to Dr. Acosta for follow-ups, and he is absolutely adorable. Much better care than my original surgeon, and nice looking to boot! ha ha. I feel lucky to have him!

Yep! That's me....hiding from everyone. I have been so bad the past few weeks, I didn't even want to acknowledge it. ARGH. I am not sure what is going on with my body, but my gosh, my hormones are acting stupid!! I could understand it if I was losing gobbs of weight....but that's not the case, so I am not sure why my body is acting weird.
I am about 2 weeks late on my period. Ummmmmm, NO, I am about 95% sure that I am NOT pregnant! I have an IUD, and just in case, I took a test yesterday and it was negative. I really don't want to be starting over at 42! Yikes!!
Well, if I am 2 weeks late, that means I have been going through about 3 weeks straight of PMS symptoms. The cravings, the hunger, tiredness...all of it. I will even get some cramps here and there, but they will go away.
I am angry with myself and not excusing myself, at all. I have not been limiting my carbs very well. Some days, I have been eating whatever I feel like, and some days I am pretty much on plan. I have seen the scale go back up to 178, and I WAS down to 174. I know if I can stay low carb for a few days, I will see about 2 pounds go quickly because it's more than likely water weight.....but, I staying low carb is the key.
If I don't start by Monday, I will call and schedule an appointment with my doctor. I am just frusrated to no end with my lack of will power right now. I am seriously thinking of finding a good therapist that works with food addictions. What I need to do, more than anything, is find the motivation I have been lacking. I seriously don't want to see my surgeon next month with so little progress. How freaking embarassing.
Hopefully, everyone else is working their tool! I will get back on this horse, and keep trying!! Someday we will ride off in to the sunset together, I promise!!
