First psychiatry session happened… today!

Holy smokes.


Did a lot of soul searching yesterday, and decided that it is absolutely imperative to address the self-sabotoging habits underlying what appears to be just an over-robust appetite.

When I called my health provider today, and explained what has happened in the last ten months with the astronomical weight gain and reverting back from healthier habits to damaging ones, they put me on hold, and made an emergency apportionment to meet with them at 6pm!

Was grilled for an hour with questions and answers… and starting tomorrow at 8:00am I'll be in three rounds of therapy: psychiatric, counseling, and group support classes to deal with the Binge Eating Disorder issues.

Am a big believer that when the time is right, the time is right, and my goodness did everything fall into place today. Really exhausted from all of the activity today though. There is nothing like working with five strangers back to back telling each one essentially "I have a problem," to land you where you need to be.

Food wise, I avoided takeout today, which is plus. Stopped at the grocery store instead and picked up a nice meal and lunch for tomorrow.

One baby step at a time.

good morning Kayla I am glad your visit went well
I am sure my problem was an over stimulated appetite
I was a foodie I never liked fast food so I didn't have to fix that one but anything sweet was on my radar and I had to stop baking that was something I did on a regular basis that did not help my body . I still bake but a lot less than I was doing mostly I bake on holidays like thanksgiving and Christmas


I used to say My appetite regulator was broken so I had to self regulate I may have to do that again
when I started I wasn't counting calories I was counting nutrients

Kayla, that was an astounding response from your doctors! I have never heard of such a comprehensive evaluation so quickly. Wow! Most of us could benefit from some sessions with that group! It appears that you are in good hands. My doctor says things like.."well, good luck with the weight loss, it's very hard to do and most people don't succeed". It may be true from his perspective, but not very encouraging from mine.

Wow, yes, I'm with Kathy, never heard doctors go into fast mode. LOL Don't get burn out. some times you go into something so fast it exhausts you and you get burn out and quit. So try to take it easy and relax some, then pick up again. Hope you know what I am saying.

Kayla!!! See, you are supposed to go to therapy or all the arrangments wouldn't have happened so quickly. I truly hope you get the help you feel you need. It certainly can't hurt.

We'll be your untrained therapists too. Not to mention your cheerleaders. Judy keeps her pink pom-poms handy to help celebrate those victorious moments. She does the happy dance too. I've never been much of a dancer but I can stomp my feet, clap my hands and yell hooray!!
