Acupunture...One Pound at a Time

It's  2010.  My weight now is 280.  I don't think I want to go back to the weight loss doctor as I am concerned about the foreign substances that have been going in my body.  I was at a Kwaanzaa festival when I got information about a Holistic doctor in Brooklyn and I am going to make an appointment.  Food addiction is a mutha.

1/12/10 - I wrote the above paragraph exactly 4 days ago, and the reality that my eating is spinning out of countrol has made me re-think my decesion to go back to the weight loss doctor.  I am ashamed to go to Stacy and have her see me 8 pounds heavier, but I realize, I have to do something before it gets out of countrol.

My doctor is in the office every Monday, Wednesday & Friday.  I am thinking I will go around lunch time tomorrow and pick up my meds real quick.  If doctor Stacy is there, I MUST see her, but if not, I will forgo the doctor's visit.  I can do without seeing the guys...there's something about the connection between us girls...she's AWESOME!

Also I have decided that I am going to my friend Linda for acupuncture.  I will do whatever it takes to rid myself of this unhealthy weight....one pound at a time.

Share a giggle with a friend with this low glycemic recipe for grilled ham and cheese which tastes so good, you won't believe it's good for you. If weight-loss is your goal, you'll need to watch your bread in-take, so share this sandwich with a friend. It goes great with soup or a tossed salad on the side.
