Today's Weight: 267.5

On the home scale – naked! I haven’t been around much lately because I’ve been SUPER busy since my friend came in to town. But my weight went up then came back down over the last few days. (268.5 – 269something at the doctor - 267.5) Water retention?
Anyway, some updates:

Vegetarianism: Told my mother & father separately. And I told them both about the nutrition I am following (the vegetarian food pyramid), that two of my doctors think it’s a good choice for me, and that I’ve lost weight ever since changing my diet (over 6 lbs.). My mom’s reaction – ho-hum. But she was careful to make sure that there was special food for me when we went out to eat that night. My dad’s reaction – “Now why the HELL would you do that?” - he thinks it will make me ill. Oh, well, you can’t win them all. It will be tougher to eat around them from now on. But they need to respect my decision.

Health: I am soooo excited! It turns out that I have sleep apnea and will be getting a C-PAP machine by the end of the month. I’m excited because this should help me with my fatigue and weight. The sleep doctor told me that the apnea has probably been a huge factor in the last 60lbs. I put on. YAY! With proper sleep, the weight should just melt off!

Swimming: I made it to 44 laps last night. I’m steadily moving toward that 70 that I want to achieve. It only took me 45minutes. YAY! The sleep doctor also said my swimming times should improve after I start using the C-PAP machine. Good – I’d like to do that 70 in 1 hour.

are your parents ranchers? why does it bother them so much?

No, they aren't ranchers - but they grew up eating meat on the farms they were raised on (a dairy and a strawberry farm respectively). I was a vegetarian from age 8-25 and they blame my current health issues on it.

ahhh. i'm sorry you have to deal with that. you surely already know this, but your vegetarianism did not cause your current health problems. =)

my sister also has PCOS, and i know a lot of other people who do as well. it's very common...i don't think one can blame a lack of meat for that. it's just...bad luck!
