Well, today was my one year check up. All of my blood work was in a good range. I have to wait to get access to my online report to be sure though. But my ferritin and b12, are actually higher than my 6 month apt. The meeting with the NP went as I expected. Super excited about how much weight I've lost, then followed up with the request I increase my carbs....
She also said I'm probably done losing weight, and sliding into maintenance...ah no thanks! Don't get me wrong, I'm super happy where I am, and if this is where my body stays, I'd be content. But c'mon, why try to get me to stop when I'm literally just out of the obese BMI range? She also said it's normal to gain weight as we age.
lll just keep doing what I'm doing, and let my body decide where it wants to settle.
goal: out.of.170s. I've been bouncing around here for weeks! Then 145, healthy BMI.
How was your week?
I think my car is slowly dying. It's 17 years old but I cannot afford a new car. Weighing heavy on my heart.
Thought I was doing better with my eating but the scale told a different story. At 3 years out, I still keep trying to get to my goal weight of 150. It gets harder the farther out you are. If you want to lose more, go for it.
Have a good week
I feel the same way. Very comfortable and thankful to be where I am, but I want to reach my goal. It's not that far away. I'll keep plugging. I saw my plastic surgeon this morning for my ten year followup. She was really excited and made me feel good about myself. My LBL has held up so well, even with the 100 lb regain and loss. My legs are a different story, but she didn't seem to think they were too bad. I am just going to love my body the way it is for now. Maybe later down the road I will do something. My face needs some help. They had a sale on "Bootox" today, so I did that, and bought some filler for my loss of volume in my face. I'll have it injected in a little over a week. I just look so tired. Hey, I am!
My body really seems to like this weight. I saw 169 for a couple of days about a month ago, and never saw it again. Hopefully this time next week I'll have something to report.
HW: 375 SW: 282 CW: 167 GW: 159
I'm really interested to see what you think of the results of the filler!
im weighing my plastic surgery options now. My legs need reconstruction the most, but I can easily hide them, so I'm not sure I'll spend the money. I would like to get my face done down the road though. And arms.
IF and Sally, well done on the losses this week. IF, yes, keep going; I also don't know why they say to stop losing. Sally, the 60's will be yours again soon!
Yvonne, I am sorry to learn about your car. I hope you're able to sort that out.
Today is my 2 month surgiversary. I am thinking about posting a recap, maybe a then and now pic on the Ontario forum later if I can muster up taking a now pic of myself. Lol. I am down 45.5 lbs with Opti - hard to believe already. I wasn't seeing the changes, then I pulled out some before pics this week, and I could really see it.
Goal: To get into the 250's!! And to lose 50 lbs. :)
Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. Choose happy.
