Second appointment with my CPn

I’m just back from seeing my CPN Sarah.

We had a really productive appointment.

We talked about the week I’d had. She asked me if I’d managed to not weigh myself. I said I had but that it had been a struggle.

We discussed what to do. She offered that I could bring my weighing scales in and that she’d keep it in a safe place for me until our work together was finished.

So I opted to do that, so tomorrow morning when I go up to the hospital to see Dr. Barry I’ll bring the weighing scales and Erin who is one of the other nurses will take it from me and give it to sarah.

She would’ve done it herself, but she has a home visit first thing tomorrow morning.

We talked about my food, and I told her I’d been cooking, which I’d been enjoying, I also was telling her about posting my recipes and photos up on facebook.

She said she could tell by looking at me that I was enjoying doing that.

We talked about restricting and purging and I told her Emily hasn’t purged, that we’d been writing when we got the urge to throw up.

We have restricted a little though, which I was honest and told her about.

We also had to get rid of some laxatives out of the house, because Emily was tempted to use them.

I was honest with her though and I told her about having them and that they’re gone now.

She thanked me for my honesty.

We set a goal for this week, that I will exercise for 15 minutes for 5 days this week, but she also set herself a challenge, she is going to try to drink 1.5 litres of water a day for five days this week.

I love that she has also set herself a challenge to do this week.

We have another appointment again for next week, at noon on Tuesday.

She will weigh me then, we agreed to only weigh in every two weeks, just so she can write it down on her notes.

I am already being weighed at slimming world. I am glad I am getting rid of my weighing scales, as it was very tempting to keep stepping up on it.

So here’s to another good week, with eating, no purging or restricting, and with exercising for five days.

  1. I agree. Weighing yourself every five minutes makes it the control, not you. Give her the scales to not tempt yourself because that can be detrimental. Of course this is only my opinion Carol💕
