Victory of the Month

The new years brought the beginning of many new things, including the Atkins diet, as well as starting my surgery rotation. For a little background, I'm in my third year of medical school, and during this time I am rotating through all of the different specialties so I can learn about them and decide which area I'd like to specialize in. After I am done next year, I will then start residency to train in the specialty I choose.

So, going back to the start of the year...

When I we had orientation on the first day of my surgery rotation, they took us down to the surgery locker room to change into scrubs. For all of the surgical staff, there is always a big shelf of the blue surgical scrubs in the locker room with many different sizes. You can differentiate which size is which by the color of the drawstring....which is handy, yet also embarrassing because everyone knows which size you wear. :( That first day, I grabbed the same "yellow drawstring" size as all of the other girls, but they didn't fit. So, embarrassed, I went and got a pair of the bigger, "tan drawstring" sized scrubs. I've been kind of depressed about this, especially because my male resident wears the "yellows" awful that I was wearing a bigger size than he was!

BUT...yesterday, I had to change into scrubs from my dress clothes and I decided to step out on a limb and try the "yellows" again. There was nothing to lose; no one else was around, nor would they know if the "yellows" still didn't fit. So I tried them---AND THEY FIT! Wow! I was so excited. I proudly wore my "yellows" all day, and couldn't help beaming every time that yellow drawstring caught my eye.

While the scale hasn't budged this week, I can still find some victory!
on diet Atkins
