I'm SO excited!

And I just can't hide it! I know, I know, I know, I know I want you! Yes, I'm stuck in the disco age today, thanks to a novel I'm listening to - "Beyond the Blonde". A flashback chapter has our heroine trying to enter Studio 54 at the height of it's popularity. So far, a most entertaining novel but I'm only on disc 2. Listening to books in the car has made my commute seem shorter and even more importantly, seems to leave me less stressed.
Anyway, back to the source of my excitement.
I saw my endocrinologist today. He is supportive of my wish to change my focus from pregnancy to weight loss. I am going off Lantus IMMEDIATELY. He suggested phentermine instead of Byetta. More studies done on phentermine, longer history, etc. I am leery of phertermine because I did phen-fen for 3 days before it was outlawed and hated it - it made me very speedy and jittery. Everything else was fine with him.
Next up was the new nutritionist! I loved her! 35-ish, glasses, not too gorgeous, not too doctory-snobby, very nice and very helpful. She and her MA (Medical Assistant?) asked a ton of questions and I didn't feel at all rushed. She got me set up on a Glycemic Index type of diet. I need to write down the changes I'm going to make, but I haven't got time right now - that will be another post.

Hoisted by my own Petard

I had a great ranting and raving post about the new requirements to be put in a federal database to buy Tylenol Severe Sinus medication. I kept thinking about this post, yet freezing when I started to write it. Now that it's 3 weeks later I realize that I just don't want to write it!
AND it has nothing to do with the stated intent of this blog. AND it won't do any good anyway because the US govt is going to H-E-double hockey sticks in a handbasket anyway!
Tomorrow is endo appt and new dietician appt. My weight has been down and now is back up to the 2006 highest. GREAT! WTF is up with this?????
Last post I mentioned feeling sickly, I was hit HARD with a 22-hour nasty bug - I wonder now if it wasn't a touch of the e. coli bug. I don't know if you can get a mild case of that, but I was eating big containers full of spinach from Sam's Club most of that month. Hmmmmm?
More later, I just wanted to get something up here.
Oh yes, my son turned 3 yesterday!
