Just had to let you know what the Nurse said to me last night before she let me have the tablets again - I had put on about 1/2 stone since January - but hadn't really been doing much different than when I was taking the tablets, I was really fed up and though I wanted to do it on my own it never really happened and I was really shocked that I had put on 7lbs.
Anyway she asked me if I would like her to refer me for CBT and after she had explained that it would help me retrain my brain to not overeat she went on to say that we shouldn't really eat enything that we couldn't eat with a knife & fork - so I said oh but what about Toast and she went off the handle about the fact that I shouldn't eat bread, potatoes or pasta
I had difficulty with this as if you cut these out then what do you fill yourself up with - anyone got any suggestions? She did relent a little by the end of the conversation to say that 2 tablespoons would be okay but that I should defo not eat another slice of bread again - not even brown, granary, wholemeal!!! What right has this woman (who I might add is not stick thin herself, but unlike me is tall and therefore carries it better) to lecture me like this. It infuriates me that they are like this - it's hard enough to lose weight and all you need is a sypathetic ear but they are few and far between!!!
Sorry to rant - the outcome was that I got the tablets and she is also going to refer me for CBT - anyone out there had any experiences of this treatment? It might help with my counting OCD so heres hoping.
Those of you who are not asleep after reading this garbage - I'm just going to lay out on a plate a couple of sugar free mints and line up a knife & fork!!!!! Certainly gets you thinking doesn't it?
