Dr. Houston was really happy for me and kept telling me that I had done an excellent job losing weight. I asked if I should keep an "official" goal in mind. He said that it could be whatever I want it to be... that he wouldn't give me an exact number. My jaw hit the floor. At first he said 150 and I gave him the "are you out of your mind" look. He said that if I continued to do what I'm doing that I would easily lose 20-25 more pounds though. (easily??? yeah right! lol) Anyways, he said if I didn't lose another pound that he considered me a success. Again, my jaw hit the floor. That just really made my day, week, year, life! I have been morbidly obese all my life (I still am though.. just obese) and I am... just at a loss for words. From 366 to 196.....wow is all I can say. AND I'm not even officially a year out!! How crazy is that??!!
I asked about pregnancy... he said it would be ok to do so now if I wanted but advised waiting 3-6 months to be sure my weight stablilizes... so I am VERY excited to hear that. I'm going to give myself 3 months to lose 20lbs and then start lots of baby dancing
There is a recent picture of me in my profile - taken this past Saturday. I hardly recognize myself.
