Wassa, dont be so hard on yourself, we strive for progress, not perfection. I know thats a Jenny Craig and a 12 step slogan but it fits in this case. I remember those bad days in Pediatrics, I had too many of those myself. One of the many reasons I left nursing and went into engineering. Its alot more fun and absolutely love telling men what to do LOL. We all havefound my comfort in food too at one time or another.

Ahhhh, but I didn't tell you all the other stuff I ate! I was sooooo angry!

One of the nurses I sent out to a child's home gave 10x the amount of growth hormone to this child for three days in a row. There was no excuse, none. I was soooo angry I could'a spit. She was supposed to give 3mg, she gave 30mg three days in a row. It should have lasted a month, I figured there was a problem when he was out of medication in three days.

Another person (patient) decided that her internet research showed she should take double the amount of a drug she was prescribed. Her doctor didn't know what he was talking about, an on line chat room told her so. So she doubled up on a drug and went through a 2 week supply of a verrrrrry expensive drug in a week. Then she told the doctor we told her to do it because she didn't want him upset with her. Luckily with that particular drug she didn't harm herself but trying to sort out what happened at 10PM with a doctor screaming in my ear was not enjoyable.

Had another one that is on a drug for bone density problems and she called me hourly in a panic because her feet are getting bigger. They aren't, she's just crazy. She's actually the 2nd person that swore her feet were growing a size daily. Finally I suggested she get bigger shoes and now she's happy. These doctors need to start treating the psych issues people have as well as the medical.

Then my dog got an abscess on his butt, poor baby had to go to the ER clinic and have his butt lanced. That hurt. He's zonked out on pain pills as I type.

The whole entire weekend was like that, one piece of stupidity or frustration after another. I couldn't decide if I wanted to run or eat so I did both. ;o)

I sent them an email from their contact us link on the web site. Didn't you say that you can get your results online? I put my order # in my email. Was there something else I was supposed to do to get my results?

I wasn't sure if I was supposed to wait for them to contact me or what I was supposed to do.

thanks!

I'd call them and ask them to set you up with a password and method to check your results on line. It's just faster that way. I can't remember if you have seen the on line version of results or not, if you want to see mine I'll call you with the password. You can see what it looks like and all the info they give you.

WASa,

OMG woman, we must be twins! I can not believe the similarities of your weekend with my life and the stupid mistakes that people at my work make which cause me to run around putting out fires all day!

Last night after re-reading your post about getting back on track and being straight about the hard road it is to be fat and how we have to change our habits and yes, exercise--I dreamed about running on a treadmill trying to reach a bagel. Woke up at 4am to the dang alarm and went to the gym to do cardio and was so pissed about it(exercise not the bagel dream)! :scared0: I was mad half my day-not at all the stupid mistakes that my workers had made but because I am sick of being Fat and damn mad that I haven't been able to just pay for the surgery and schedule it and that I will have to exercise daily cause diabetes insulin resistence is going to ruin my life if I don't. So I went to the gym, avoided white carbs today, hungry as hell because I crave them so bad, and now will have to do it again tomorrow. :angry: Tom, my trainer, had the audacity to call me today and tell me that he enjoyed your post as well and that he wanted to see me tomorrow and that he wanted me to be happy about it rather than pissed. I told him to watch out because he is treading on thin ice around a big mad fat chick dealing with carb withdrawal.:scared0: Anyway, thank you, sister!

I looked at the ZRT website for a phone # and didn't see one. Can you pm me the phone # so I can call them and ask them to set me up?

Wassa you crack me up too, but I love it. I dont have those nursing errors to contend with anymore but I do have to contend with demolition workers trying to knock down building with the gas line connected and trying to blow up several city blocks in south Los Angeles. I hate when I get calls like that on a Saturday. Stupid men! Anyway. I can relate to all of it. The treadmill screaming as well. Stupid treadmill. What to do? I guess I should quit complaining, get an attitude of gratitude and keep on truckin. HAVE A GREAT DAY and ignore the assholes

Wasa,

Thanks for this link. Very interesting. My internist checked my D3 level a few months ago and I was deficient, level 28. I am feeling much better after starting 5,000 units/day. I had a few qualms about taking so much of a fat soluble vit, but looks like all the literature I've reviewed supports this route.

New week.... New start. You'll do fine!

WASA, look at the bright side. You could have been eating pie in the recliner. The inclination to run would have never been on my radar. Glad to hear you are back on track and hope next week the idiot gods pass you by.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
