So, I'm behind on updating here and on YouTube. Hubby is home sick tonight, so I'm not doing a video (I hate having an audience...lol). I will update here, though.
I went to my psych eval on Tuesday. He asked questions about my diet history, how my weight has been all my life, how my childhood was, if I understood the complications of the surgery, and how I'd eat afterwards. Then he asked me if I could die from the surgery and I said, yes, but I am trying to concentrate on the positive. Then I told him that I am not worried about dying, just leaving behind my husband and my brother. He thought my calories that I aim for was too high, 1550, for my activity level. He recommended 1200, but to see what the nutritionist next week says. When I saw my psychiatrist, yesterday, she recommended 1000! Whoa! So I'm aiming for 1300 calories a day until I see the nutritionist.
Speaking of seeing my psychiatrist, she agreed to up my dosage of Wellbutrin and take me off the Celexa and Abilify. If I am to become hypomanic, I'll have to go back on the Abilify, though. So far, I am a little bit down, but it'll take time to adjust. I'm pretty positive I'll be fine, though.
I got a talking scale, today. Ordered it from Amazon.com. Thing is, it can't get it to talk, because my body shakes whenever I get on it! The reading on the scale keeps changing and doesn't stabilize because of my shaking! I guess I'll just have to have my husband look at the scale for me, still! When he weighs himself, it'll talk to him! *sigh*
