In an attempt to give this all I’ve got and take advantage of literally every resource available to me, I have made a “lifestyle coaching” appointment for this afternoon at 3pm.
A work friend told me about the service, which is offered free through our insurance company. It’s a registered nurse who helps with things like weight loss and nutrition, along with a few other categories.
I’m kind of nervous and not sure what this will be like or if just talking to someone over the phone can really make a difference and help me. But, I might as well give it a try, right?
As I mentioned yesterday briefly, I have some old “food issues”. If I’m really going to do this (and I am!) I need to resolve these sooner rather than later. They surely have an effect on my success and I’m not willing to let old poor habits keep me from reaching my goals.
So I’m very nervous. Opening up and talking to a stranger is never easy. Getting into intimate details about my neuroticism is definitely scary. But I know this is something I have to work on.
So I guess I’ll let you know how it goes!
I also called today and made a Doctor’s appointment to try and get more diet pills. I have some I was prescribed awhile ago, but I’m running out. And right now I just don’t think I can consistently control my eating like I need to without some assistance.
I’ve got to gain control not only over my weight but also my eating and thoughts around eating and food. Food has basically ruled my life in some way or another since I was about 11 or 12 years old. It needs to end now. Granted what that control has looked like has varied, but my life has basically revolved around food for years and years. I’m 31 years old now, and there’s no reason to let this continue.
Wish me luck!
