So yesterday was my appt. They did a physical, blood work( no results yet) and gave me some nutritional ideas to loose the weight. The PA started me on an appetite suppressant, Chromium, mulitivitamins and medication that will work on dopamine in my brain to help control my fat, sugar and salt cravings. I also got my vit. b12 injection and plan to get that weekly.
Needless to say, I'm very overwhelmed!!!! I got a ton of handouts on nutrition and the program so I know its' going to take time to process it all. The name of the clinic is Stem Ross.
My current weight is 183 lbs which is alot for my small frame. Thank God I'm 5'6 so I don't look half bad to say the least.
My goal weight is to be between 135-140 lbs. So I have to loose about 50lbs.
Today I started with my supplements and maybe it's all in my head but I notice a big difference. I'm not as hungry, have alot of energy and don't have my usual cravings. I've have consumed my required 64 oz of water and have been peeing like crazy!!! I wish I can insert a foley!
For breakfast I had greek plain yogurt with a scoop of sliced strawberries.
For my AM snack I had a fiber one bar
For lunch I'm having Broccolli and half grapefruit
For my PM snack I'm planning on having nuts and string cheese
For dinner I will have a protein meal bar
For night snack one boiled egg
I'm basically trying to eat 6 small meals a day that is filled with protein. The program suggest 25-30 grams of protein per meal but right now I can't see myself doing that. I don't have much food so I'm trying to work with what I have.
When I get paid next week I'll buy the whey protein powder and do 2 shakes a day with that. I did a 30 minute work out this AM on the eliptical and plan to do this 5-6 days a week. After a week or so I'll add in weight training. I'm starting off with baby steps so that I won't get overwhelmed and quit the program. I'm taking one day at a time. My fiance says when I loose my first 20 he's taking me on a shopping spree! I find that rewards is also a nice motivation for me.
I will post my weigh in results every week and will let you know how my journey is going.
