I've lost some weight, but I am not happy.

I've lost 6 pounds in the last 3 weeks but I am not too happy about it. I lost it all in the first 3 days of my new medications and low GI/ low calorie diet so I know it wasn't all fat, it was water weight. Why have I been so good for 3 weeks and for the last two weeks lost nothing? I am not giving up, I am giving it a 3 month go before I decide it isn't working, but if I don't lose some more weight soon I am really going to have trouble staying positive. I don't even know how it is humanly possible for a 300+ pound woman to eat 1600-1800 calories a day of healthy food and do the elliptical machine everyday and not lose an ounce for 2 full weeks. Ugh! I will keep you posted.


So here it goes...

I met with the endocrinologist on Monday. Some of the test results were good and some were scary. It was reconfirmed I have the endometerial hyperplasia and I also have PCOS. My hormone levels were completely wacked and my insulin was borderline. They want me to go on some meds. He strongly recommended since I was determined to try and loss weight with out surgery that I follow a diet that consists of foods that are low on the glycemic index. So, I printed out a list and am trying to eat the foods that are low mostly. Some that are medium and none of the high foods. It would be great if this could help me. I have been stuck for so long. I am giving it another go.



As of now nothing is really happening. I am pretty much waiting for my results. The endocrinologist gave me a new biopsy and took 18 vials of blood. They are testing my adrenals, pituitary gland, and hormone levels. I did a glucose test, a urine test, a saliva test and more, what fun!

In the end the Doctor will know more about my body than I do.

I get my results back on the 12th and I am very anxious about it. Hopeful knowing will help me form a plan of action.
