We went back this morning, and almost 14 months after we first visited her I am down a whole 2,5kg.
Yes, you read that right.
She went as far as to agree with my Glugster, that seeing her once a month is a waste of our time and money if we don’t take the time and effort to follow her plans and advice.
So. Where to now.
She’s suggested we follow a far stricter plan than we’ve tried so far- high protein, low carb- which will ensure a faster (and more motivational) weight loss, and she’ll change the plan every month to keep us (me) interested. She has also asked my Glugster to be stricter with ensuring we walk more and eat better since he doesn’t have a problem with self control… he just can’t say no to me!
I have now also made a plan to go on Monday to retest my thyroid levels because a screwy thyroid produces the same issues as depression. And until I get my thyroid sorted I won’t know if my anti-antidepressants are even working! I was on the brink of tears in her office and she asked if I was still on the ADs…
I’m also going to go back to see her once a week for a weigh in, to keep a check on myself.
She really is a wonderful dietitian. She doesn’t butter us up and she’s trying every trick in her book to get – and keep – us on the right track.
I am also thinking I need to get my ADHD properly diagnosed and treated…
