Day one..

Yesterday was my first appointment at Dr. Poon's Metabolic clinic.. Very interesting, to say the least.

My first weigh in was most horrible. They have a scale that tells you how much you weigh, how much is fat weight, and how much is water. They're also courteous enough to give you a print out of this info, hah. I also had to do a test to see how my metabolism is.. Apparently it's high. I'm not sure how I have a high metabolism.. But, that was my result.

They also have a store, which is full of snacks and things that comply with this diet. Phase 1 pretty much is no carbs, no sugar, no (bad) fats and NO SALT. I am so missing salt already!! I have my next appointment in two weeks, I am going to pick up some things at their shop, just to make this a bit easier.

My first real "goal" is to lose ANYTHING. My predicted weight loss is around 90lbs.. I can only hope that it works for me.

Today, I had to pick up a bunch of things. My fiancée was surprisingly supportive, and was patient as I read 600 labels.. Lots of spinach, lettuce, and (non root) vegetables..

I can do this!

New Blog; A weight loss journey

I've come back to blogger, after many a years of absence!

Why? To document my journey.

I have my first appointment at one of Dr. Poon's clinics on Thursday, August 2nd 2012. I am apprehensive about the whole situation, to be honest. Kind of terrified, as well.
What if I can't do it?
My head is full of doubt. I will die if I don't change, so I must keep reminding myself of this. I do have the strength to do this, I can do it, I deserve better than this! For every positive thought, I've ten negative ones swirling around in my brain.

June was a tough month for me. I did South Beach, and gained FIVE lbs in the first two weeks. It was horrible, I don't think I can sink any lower, to be honest. It's difficult, I am suffering a myriad of health problems due to my weight. Random spiking blood pressure, headaches that last weeks, sleep apnea, depression.. I'm also showing a marker in my blood for an autoimmune disease, and have just done a hormone test.
To top it all off, my doctor suspects that I am bipolar.

So on that bombshell, I'm going to ask for luck, and positive thoughts.
