Going to the doctors

I am back in town and decided that I needed to schedule an appointment with my doctor. I don't really want to talk about why - but it is safe to say that I am nervous about what the doctor will say. Not only about the thing that I am going in about, but also about my weight. I am sure that the fact that I am essentially morbidly obese is going to come up. I guess I can comeback with, "yeah - I know. But I'm on Weight Watchers" My understanding is that a lot of doctors like it when their overweight patients go on weight watchers because they ultimately do see results - not only in lower weight, but also in lower cholestorhol and blood pressure. So we shall see what the doctor says. Please send me good thoughts.

So the trip to Savannah, GA was great, although I am now glad to be home and sleeping again on my own bed. My friend and I did stop off at Paula Deen's restaurant - Lady and Sons. We opted to go with the buffet - which is one of those things that they warn you about at WW. That it is really tough to manage going through one of those without taking everything and then loading up on seconds. I can definitely say that at Paula Deen's that is the truth. I ended up loving the Mac and Cheese as well as the collared greens. But I resisted and did not go up for seconds. Which was good - because apparently the buffet comes with its on dessert selection - so I got a little bowl of banana pudding (which I also LOVE). Thankfully I left the restaurant full enough to not be hungry and yet not too full so that I couldn't enjoy another hour or so of walking around Savannah. What ultimately did send me to a nap was the fact that sleeping on the train wasn't too restful and I knew that we would be up late doing out bachlorette activities.

Ultimately I won't see the results until tomorrow's weigh in - but hopefully there will have been a wee bit of a loss.

Finally - the WOMAN challenge starts this Sunday - so if anyone wants to join my Sassy Strutter team - please go sign up.

Hey,
I saw your website on the comments for Shani's blog. Your comment was so compassionte so I thought I would visit your site. I am also on WW. Started 12-29-07. You're right - it has to be a lifestyle change. I had started and stopped WW twice already, but this time it's for keeps. My body hurt me too bad when I started this time to let myself get big again. I want to make my goal soooo bad, that I don't say if, I way WHEN I make goal. I started out at 229.6. I wanted to wish you the very best with your weight loss and may God bless you on your journey. You WILL make it!
