I have been such a good girl and I am finally losing steadily.
One thing I am curious about, though, is what happens with others when they meet with their counselor.
Right now, the counselor weighs me first. Then, we go into a little cubby where she sits at a desk, takes my blood pressure, asks me when my last BM was, then proceeds to go through my diary.
It is the diary thing that frustrates me.
It seems that no matter what, they always find something to criticize, even though I am losing weight and following the program to the letter. For example, I had a pretzel at the mall which is perfectly acceptable. I counted it and was thrilled. This gal says, "That is too much starch for one serving. It would be better if you spread your starches out over a few meals." I replied that I was losing weight (I lost 2 more pounds last week) at their suggested rate and why was the pretzel on the tip card if I was discouraged from having it? She just shrugged and handed me my diary back.
You know, I am loving how I feel now being back in control. It just seems to throw cold water on me, though when they pick apart my diary like this - especially when I would challenge anyone to find anything wrong with what I am doing. It would be one thing if I wasn't losing...ya know?
So, I was just curious if ya'll get the same treatment. It's like the counselors at my center feel like "help" only comes by pointing out something wrong.
I have finally figured out that it is the trip to be weighed in regularly that keeps me on the straight and narrow road, so weighing in is a must. I'm just wondering about not bringing my diary in. But, even that seems self-defeating...
