I have come to realize thanks to my doctor, that if I want to control my appetite, then I have got to keep taking my meds. Right now, I feel so encouraged by that news. I realize that I can handle things myself and I have done so, at least to a point. I have been binge-eating lately which if I don't , then my health will worsen. I even felt that my body was shutting down. Good news: it wasn't shutting down. It only feels that way. I believe that if I want to work at my weight, and all other issues, then I wouldn't feel so badly about my health.
