After Christmas, I realized I had added to the 25 pounds I gained after quitting smoking and it was due to my hand to mouth, to fast insulin pen, condition.
I quit sugar, processed or otherwise (not fruits) immediately and started working on eating better. I lost 4 pounds in 3 weeks - which I'm sure was just water.
I chose to go to a weight loss doctor in town (with permission from my physician) and started her program a month ago. She provides Vitamin shots in a B12 base, appetite suppressants and a recommended food plan and exercise.
I did not use the suppressants. Those things scare me to death! The B12 bases shots are heaven! I am doing low carb and walking 5 days a week.
Today was first weigh in since starting and … I gained 1.7 pounds. WTH?!
So after talking to the doctor and heading off with another month's worth of shots, I got to thinking. Wait. 1.7 in a month? That's a whole hellva lot better than 10.7 in a month right? Doc said when we weigh, it is a combination of bones, muscles and fat - with the fat being the least heavy of the three.
I'm going to keep on, and I love these shots if anything else, but I sure hope next month has the scale tipping down some.
