So yesterday I got up at 1:15 pm and left the house by 1:30 pm and drove to Houston by myself. I do not like driving far distances alone. It took me 3 hours to get there because I was stuck in traffic for about 40 minutes and I ended up being 20 minutes late to my appointment with Dr. Nowzaradan. Turns out it didn’t matter cause they were filming the tv show and I would have had to wait anyway. Also another lady who had already had her episode air was there. I waited about 35 minutes before they called me in.
I got on their scale, it said 304.7 . Weird. I weighed myself at home and it said 306.6
Dr. Now came in to see me, he said I lost 10 pounds since the last time I saw him, which is good. He looked at my blood work and he said it looks good. He said it looks like even though I am overweight, I don’t have any health issues caused by obesity. I don’t have high blood pressure, i don’t have high cholesterol, I don’t have diabetes. That can be a problem when it comes to my insurance approving me because they are usually looking for co morbidities. He said the next steps is to get my sleep study, psych eval, endoscopy, upper GI. He seemed surprised when I told him I already scheduled my sleep study for that night. I am very proactive and eager to get this bariatric surgery so I am on top of everything I need to do.
After the appointment, I had to rush back to College Station because I had a sleep study scheduled for 7:30 pm. I arrived at 8:00 pm. My sleep study specialist, Teresa, showed me to my room for the night. After filling out a ton of paperwork and getting into my nightie, she hooked me up to all the electronic contraptions. I took a picture
I had to sleep with all that stuff on. I got to bed around 10:00 pm and I don’t think I fell asleep until 12 am. I played ‘NSYNC – No Strings Attached album on my phone to try to soothe myself. I didn’t realize that album had so many upbeat songs. I think there was only 2 slow songs on that whole album. I felt like dancing in bed. Then my poppa bear (my boyfriend) called me and he had me laughing so yea I wasn’t really in the mood to sleep. Suddenly Teresa called my name and said it was time to wake up. I was surprised that I had fallen asleep. She woke me up at 5am. She said I was talking in my sleep telling someone to shut up.
So what I ate today:
5am I ate a bran muffin
4:30 pm I ate a chobani flip yogurt
6pm I ate a burrito from chipotle and had a nantucket nectar fruit drink with it, this meal had over 1500 calories in it which means I already went over my calorie goal for the day
