Rotten Weigh-In on Monday...

I was so looking forward to trying out the new office for my Monday weigh-in. The doctor I have been going to opened a new branch about 10 minutes from where I work. I can get there right after work on Mondays, instead of driving 45 minutes on Tuesday after work. Cool, right?? Not so cool. First of all, the scale at the new office weighs 6-7 lbs higher than the scale at the other office. Secondly, my doctor doesn't come to this office..someone else is there, and I felt he was too brusque, too quick, and just not interested. I knew I was going to be up on this weigh-in by one or two lbs anyway, because I had my period and was retaining water. However, when it showed that I weighed 382, I could not believe it!! My second weigh-in had showed that I lost 17 lbs. Now I am back to having lost 9. According to their scale anyway. In my heart, I know I have lost more. There is a lady who manned the front desk in the office who also works at the first place, and she confirmed that the scale is definitely 6-7 lbs heavier. She said she has weighed herself at one office, driven to the new office, weighed again, and is immediately 6-7 lbs heavier. Great. Oh well, now that I have the weight recorded there, I know I should show a drop next time I weigh there.

This past week I have noticed that I am getting hungry with the munchies at night. My first doctor had me taking the phentermine at 5:45 in the morning and then eating breakfast at 7:30 or so. (You have to take it on an empty stomach, either 2 hrs before eating, or 2 hrs after.) So yesterday, I decided to eat breakfast around 6:30, and then take the med around 8:30. It worked so much better for me! I was not that hungry for dinner, so I didn't eat that much, and then I had no desire for munchies at all later in the evening. Thankfully I was still able to get to sleep at a normal time, no problem. When I first started taking the med, I had a hard time falling asleep. But taking it later did not mess me up yesterday, whew!

Well, I have to go. We are taking an 85 year old friend out bowling today for her birthday. She is going to beat me terribly, I think. She belongs to a bowling league, and I only go about once a year! :) Have a great weekend everyone! :)


  1. DOn't beat yourself up. New scales, TOM, etc. There were a lot of factors going on there! Stay focused and all will work out!

  2. Sue? Nearly 10 days since your last post. You still out there??? :)

  3. Ha ha! I just posted another post Jericho! Things are good, I am still out there, and thankfully, still a loser. :)
