Fifty-one days into my Health Overhaul blog, I'm starting the Franken-Diet with the partial advice of my physician. (He likes WW, doesn't like Atkins.) Insert DISCLAIMER here for anyone who wants to try it with me! :) (But if you do want to try it with me, let me know! The Franken-Diet is listed in my previous post!) I'll be restarting my day to day numbering system since I'm back to square one.
I'm not discouraged, really. I'm excited to try something both familiar and new. I have a clean bill of health, "except for your weight problem." That's a BIG except, doncha think? What I heard: "EXCEPT you're likely to develop diabetes, heart disease and tons of other things if you don't get off your can and DO SOMETHING about it!" With the live-or-die spiel, I like a hard sell from my health care provider. Or from my internal medical-jargon interpreter!
