Doctor's Orders #7 - 9

I'm finishing up here since a) my appointment is on Friday and b) my laptop became a paper weight on Sunday and I haven't been able to post.

#7 Make an appointment with a therapist.

I was to make an appointment with one of the Melrose therapists since I have on-going depression and anxiety issues on top of the binge eating disorder. I asked for a specific recommendation and I'll be seeing her at the end of the month. I can't remember the exact date and since I'm in the middle of a restore, I can't get at my calender.

#8 Make a followup appointment.

That's this Friday at 3:30pm. It's going to be nice to weigh in and have a 30+ pound loss. Take that, fat!

#9 Try probiotics, specifically Align.

Supposedly there are studies showing that people who are very obese have a lot of bad bacteria in their gut and with all the antibiotics I've been taking over the past few years with the skin infections, I may have more than most. However, it's $30 a month for these and I didn't want to try two new prescription drugs AND a new over-the-counter at the same time, so I put it on hold.


I'm trying to not be disappointed with my one pound weight loss this week.


  1. Scales are very fickle, you could jump on one tommorrow and be down 5 pounds. Your stellar losses will continue to accrue. Meanwhile just take a look at your pictures on the side bar - your progress is very evident.

    You are doing it girl!

  2. They have a store brand at target that's really great but about half the price of align I really recommend it.
