This last week have been utterly terrible. "Why?" you ask. Well let me tell you...
Last week, I was feeling poorly, thinking it was "womanly issues". I finally broke down and went to the doctor, and after peeing in a cup, blood work and a CT Scan it was determined I have Diverticulitis. Ok, I can deal with that, I've had this before (a long time ago). Prescriptions picked up and taken, lite diet started and I am on the mend, right? Right. UNTIL the follow up. The lovely doctor tells me no exercise. Wait. What? Apparently the meds can mess up your tendons. Have you ever heard such a thing?? So, basically for 2 weeks - no exercise.
I told her that foods that are listed on the "lite diet" (white rice, white potatoes, canned fruit, canned veggies) are foods that I just don't eat anymore - at least not often. Her response was "you're just going to have to cheat". I came out of the follow up appointment defeated. In tears. I felt like my WW world was collapsing. Being told no exercise and eat what I consider non-WW friendly foods - I was crushed. And a bit panicked.
I know that I have to do what's best for my health. And I have been and will continue to do so. I am careful. I am tracking. I know I will turn a corner and will be back to my normal self. Who knows, maybe this lite diet is just what I need to shake things up a bit and get these final 10 off! Just didn't want it to be because I was sick.
