Well, I finally gave in and admitted that I'm doing a poor job of losing weight on my own, so I made an appointment at a medical weight loss center. I went yesterday. I went through lots of test, including one that tells my BMR, which is basal metabolic rate. According to the doctor, mine is extremely low, which explains why I've had such a hard time losing weight. He put me on an 800-1100 calorie-a-day diet and gave me an appetite suppressant so I won't start eating the paint off the walls on that strict of a diet. I've been on this for exactly 2 1/2 hours now and so far, so good. I feel empty, but not hungry. I know that eating that little is not a realistic way of life for me, but I felt like I needed a jump start. I'm about to start boot camp again and I needed to see some results so I won't give up again.
