Doctor's orders, yuck

The doctor has to say..no alcohol. Its like he's ripping my world apart. I've been thinking about cutting back, but NO alcohol. Ekks. We'll see. He changed my migraine medication. I will be taking topomax now. I really don't mind the stuff I've been on, but rumor has it this new stuff may work for me. We'll see. It has the added bonus of being an appetite reducer (I couldn't spell suppressant...) Its almost like cheating.

I hope it works, they are going to run some blood tests just to make sure it isn't thyroid, diabetes, or leukemia (which sounds weird right, but runs in my family). I'd take a simple solution to the problem, but don't want to have to deal with a long term issue. I just want to feel like the tiredness is not my fault. I hate feeling like I'm to blame for wanting to sleep all the time. It stresses me and the hubby out.

No workout today b/c I'll be on the road. Going to go watch my brother play jr. high football. Have to cheer him on! Also means I get to leave work early, hoooorah.

See you all tomorrow or Thursday.

It will be interesting to see how much the no-alchohol effects the scale! I think you might be in for a suprise. I haven't *really* had alcohol since I have been hardcore with this whole weight loss thing. Its really not so bad. You can do it girlie!! Just one more challenge to meet!

Hope all the tests comeout ok.

Oh, gee I guess I should have read your next post. I have found that the Topomax handles my hunger differently. I am ravenous all the time but the funny thing is when I do eat, I don't eat nearly as much and I don't feel like eating most of the time. Food is now more of a necessity instead of a luxury. I am eating because my body is telling me I have to. A friend of mine takes it for seizures and that's how I found out about it. She went from a size 10 or so down to about a size 4.
