Last Visit to the Dietitian

I had my last visit with the Dietitian yesterday. I have lost 3lbs since I first saw her a month ago. I told her that I just switched my birth control this week to a different type and have been feeling a little bloated. Also I have been hungry. Not head hungry, hungry, hungry. I've been testing myself to make sure that I'm really hungry. When I feel hungry, I eat a small snack like celery sticks and a serving of Laughing Cow Spreadable Cheese. I eat really slowly and than I wait twenty minutes to determine if I'm still hungry. Most of the time I"m still hungry. Anyway, she suggested that take 400 mcg of Chromium 2 times a day, one with breakfast and the other with dinner and that is supposed to help with the hunger and carb cravings. So I'll pick some up tomorrow and see what happens.

So now I'm waiting on the Shrink-E-Dink's report and the Dietitian's report to be completed and faxed over to the surgery center. I was told a few days on one and a week and a half on the other. I'm still waiting for a call form my PCP's office so I can get a copy of the packet that the sent the surgery center (just in case).
