That was a bust

Posted by confused , 18 September 2014 · 44 views

After a week on a low calorie diet I didn't lose anything. And my insurance won't cover the weight loss med. I called around and it is too expensive to buy. The dietician did give me a calorie and protein goal and I have been using an app to help calculate. It is so great being able to eat real food. :) Now to get moving


Not as bad as I expected

My doctor went over my lab results. She didn't want to do anything just yet. She said I am doing the right thing by dieting, so she just wants to follow me for awhile.


see doc today

Posted by confused , 17 September 2014 · 48 views

I see my primary doc today. She is going to go over my lab results. They aren't good (high lipids, high glucose, fatty liver). I have lost some weight since my last appointment. She is nice, but I am worried. I am already on a medicine for triglycerides and it isn't working apparently. And, she may have to add something for the glucose. I am hoping th...


What did I get myself into?

Posted by confused , 15 September 2014 · 44 views

My daughter is in marching band and drumline. Along with monetary donations they need parents to volunteer. Last season my husband did a lot of driving and pushing the equipment. He isn't able to this season.

They sent out an email asking for people to help push or help in other ways. I don't think I am strong enough to push (for competitions it has to...


Couch 2 5K need help

Posted by confused , 15 September 2014 · 48 views

I want to try this, but I am not sure how to start. You walk and jog for certain time or distance intervals slowly increasing until you are running. There is an app to help you, but I don't have a smart phone. What would be the best way to determine the time or distance. I could get an inexpensive watch with a timer if that would work.



Not sure if I am the right person

Posted by confused , 15 September 2014 · 44 views

I sometimes give talks on my experience with mental illness. The organizer asked if anyone had any interaction with the police while symptomatic. We have had a few issues locally with excessive force used against people with mi. I told her I had and explained the situation. It was mostly a positive experience in a different county. She asked if I would...


Went shopping

Posted by confused , 14 September 2014 · 48 views

My husband does the grocery shopping, but I needed some vegetables. I am on a diet and I get really hungry and I can add them. We usually have some but we ran out. I went to the produce dept and kind of went wild. I basically bought anything that is okay on the diet that I like. It did help having something to snack on.

My sister has been calling me to...

So Hungry

Posted by confused , 12 September 2014 · 70 views

I started a diet med and a low calorie diet today. They say it isn't too bad because it has a lot of protein so you don't get as hungry, but I don't know if I am going to make it until dinnertime. I can add some vegetables (I have a list). I will have to buy some. I had a salad today along with packaged food. The food tastes okay but I am glad it is j...


Bad labs

Posted by confused , 11 September 2014 · 62 views

I got my lab results. My glucose has been creeping up and now I am officially diabetic. My lipids are high too and I have a fatty liver. I have to follow up with my primary doc. I am on a med for my lipids but it isn't working well enough :( . The fatty liver should improve with weight loss.

I lost 5 lbs in a week and I was approved for the weight los...
