Doctor, Doctor Time

I have a doctor’s appointment set for 1/9 that I”m trying to get rescheduled for this week (today if someone cancels). Wish me luck. I hated having to reschedule because of work.  I just want hard data to record, analyze, and use for a solid plan to lose some damned weight. I hope I’m still as healthy as I was at last check-in. I hope eating meat again hasn’t made things worse than I realized. That’s my fear. I’m omnivorous at heart. I love veggies, but I love pot roast, too. And chicken with mushrooms and asparagus is my happy place on lifting days.

I’m at the point where I’m ready to try Qsymia or something similar. Qsymia would be good because it’s a combo of phentermine (appetite suppressant) and topiramate (prevents migraines and seizures). I’m fat and I get migraines — especially at work and when gaming. So I feel like this would be a win for me. But what do I know without talking to te doctor first? Actually a lot. Usually my doctors are impressed by my insanely anal researching and agree with my assessment. Obsessive personality power! Yeah, it’s why I’m asking for Qsymia and not Contrave. Crazy people don’t need Contrave making them crazier. 

Anyway, at my weight, I could realistically lose 10 pounds a month safely for about 6 months. That much I know. So let’s hope things go well when I finally get to the doctor. Waiting sucks.

Meeting Macros

It’s really, really hard. So far I’m not doing well. I might need to invest in some Ensure or SlimFast– something! Time to research nutritional meal shakes. I have some FitMiss. Maybe I need to bring it to work. I’m sure as hell not drinking it at home.

Dear Internet,

I have been having peanuts for lunch for the past 4 workdays. On a good day, I might drink a 24oz bottle of water. Everyday, there’s a huge cup of DD coffee for breakfast.

Seriously. This is not helping my weightloss goals.

I went about 2 or 3 weeks without weighing myself. Guess what. I gained 9 pounds. Fuck.That.Noise.

People who are too busy to eat should be rewarded by LOSING weight. Not gaining it. If I’m gonna be running around stressed all the time, I should at least be able to buy smaller clothes.

Mmmmm Salads

OMG Why does Wendy’s have such amazing salads? The BBQ Chicken Ranch Salad* was my jam for a while. Yes, my jam. Anyway, That was a salad I could eat for lunch every day — but without the bacon. I don’t know why, but chicken and bacon on a salad just seems like overkill. When I was a vegetarian, I’d ask them to make it without the chicken and bacon and it was still amazing. I lost a lot of weight around that time… hmmm.  Nope. Can’t do that again.

Moving on…

So now Wendy’s has this Mediterranean Power Salad* that is to live for. OMG. Great greens, chicken, chickpeas, hummus, feta, quinoa… some other stuff. All the protein. All the flavor. All the veggies fo dat ass. I swear. Did I mention the flavor?

It’s also worth noting that both of these salads are so good that I almost never use the dressing packet that comes with them. I don’t get crazy about recipes usually — especially not from a fast food place — but this is seriously worth sharing. Both of these salads are now my go-to lunches for when I forget to pack leftovers. The nutrition specs aren’t bad at all. My caloric restrictions and protein needs are being met when I have them. I wish I could have one for lunch and one for dinner every day, but that’s just not practical. Ah well.

 

*Yeah, I suck at remembering the real names of the salads but I know I’m close.

Weight Loss Foods

I’ve been watching this guy’s elliptical workout videos for a bit; I finally read his site. It has so much useful, motivational information! Check out  this diet info page on NowLoss.com. He raises a lot of logical points.

You’d have to eat 9 medium sized carrots (and good luck trying to do that) to get same amount of calories contained in a bag of M&M’S

I don’t agree with every piece of advice, but most of it is pretty awesome. Mostly it inspires me of what to eat when I can’t think of anything to eat. Oh, but there’s no way in hell I’m drinking V8. Ew… Yuck… Blech!

Now I just need to hurry and get an elliptical machine for home.
