I skipped out on my doctor's appointment...

I know some of you asked me how my doctor's appointment went on Wednesday and well.....

I didn't go :)

I have a few reasons why I didn't go. First of all, at the moment I don't have health insurance with the company I am working with and I am not eligible until October 1st. Therefore, each time I go to the doctor I have to pay $125 for a fill verses only $25. This week in particular I am poor because all of my paycheck went to my mom because I owed her money. That is the first reason.

Second reason...and I'm not ashamed to say it...I ate TERRIBLY Labor Day weekend. Friday wasn't too bad but Saturday, Sunday and Monday were bad for me! When I did my "Monday Weigh-In" I had gained weight for that previous week. And long story short, I didn't want to have gained weight right before I went for a 6 week check-up/fill. Last time I went to the doctor (6 weeks ago), I was 231. My doctor wanted me to have lost AT LEAST 6 pounds and with my little gain for the weekend, I had only lost 6 pounds down from 231. So yes...I canceled my doctor's appointment Tuesday morning and rescheduled it for September 20th...11 days away. I wanted to have lost more than 6 pounds so I wouldn't have to deal with the embarrassment again. (My previous doctor's appointment before the 231...I had a slight gain as well).

All this to say...Tuesday I buckled down hard. I was super strict on my eating and yesterday I was even more strict. I made sure I didn't eat ANYTHING after 7 pm and drank water like it was going out of style. I am going to Moe's today with Kim (FELLOW BLOGGER!) and I'm trying to decide what to eat. And....bummer alert...I can tell I am about to start my period so hopefully that will come and go before my doctor's appointment on the 20th.

So that is the reason I didn't have my doctor's appointment heehee :)

Have a fabulous Thursday!!


  1. I would not want to pay the 125 if I could hold out a few more weeks! More money for the fun stuff!

  2. I don't blame you. I wouldn't wanna pay that much either.

  3. All good reasons. You'll lose what you need to by the 20th.

  4. I wouldn't want to pay that much either; you'll reach your goal before the next appointment :)
