UAMS Diet Program

This is a diet update
As of April 4th-- I have lost 28 pounds..
I know that seems like a lot but when your goal
is to lose 100# - it means I have a long
way to go.
The diet plan does work, but I am not impressed
with UAMS . The fee is $500 to get started- then every
week it is another $50 for lab work or for a 3 min .
visit with one of their doctors. Then add another
$105 for three boxes of food supplements,
and it gets damned expensive.
Averages out to about $72 a pound- and that
does not includee gas & parking fees.
Hell, I could buy several pounds of scallops
and lobster for $72 a pound !!
How much is KOBE beef??
Yesterday when I went to weigh in and give
yet another couple of vials of blood, as usual, it is like
a chinese fire drill.
The weight clinic shares space with another clinic--
so the place is always overcrowded.
When one weight loss class lets out ,
another is signing in .Now this clinic area
is where we get weighed in and see the doctor (if it
your week to see the Dr.), fill out your order for your
food supplements and if you are having blood work
you must weigh in THEN go up to the lab for the blood
draw and then get to your class on time .
Next Bitch
For all of the money we are spending,
you would think that SOMEBODY would
know where the hell the classes are.
I was told , "Go to the CR buiding 10th floor."
Ok- I know where that is -- that is where the first
12 weeks of classes were held..
Nope -- wrong-- nobody knows anything about
the BB classes . Okay , I call the weight
clinic-- SUPRISE--
I get the freaking answering machine.
Finally, one if the "instructors" tells me -- Oh no-
that class in over in the Spinal research building.
1st floor - 1st door on the right .
Back down to the 3rd floor,
across the walkway to the parking lot,
across the bridge to the hospital and into the elevator,
down to the 1st floor. Hike thru another hall, thru the
lobby and find my classroom.
This room is a storage room, a huge storage room
with cement floors, a couple of folding tables and some
cheap plastic chairs that are in danger of collapsing
with the weight of the women that are sitting on them.
I stood thru 1/2 of the class because the way the
chairs are cut, my right leg kept falling asleep.
This room has table full of broken computers, boxes of
some sort of supplies and no walls. Thats right , there is
construction foam where there should be
drywall. What a hell hole !!!
Now they run 14 classes a day. Most of the classes
have 6 to 20 people. Figure the amount of money
they are bringing in on a daily basis, plus the parking fees
they collect everytime we are there. You would think
they could at least put us in a decent room.
Most of us feel pretty bad about ourselves already,
and this does not help.
