Surgeon TestimonialJorge Acosta, MDMy surgery was done by Dr. Eldo Frezza. He turned out to be pretty bad. My insurance company assigned me to Dr. Acosta for follow-ups, and he is absolutely adorable. Much better care than my original surgeon, and nice looking to boot! ha ha. I feel lucky to have him!

That would be great if I were actually at my goal weight!!
I had pretty much an entire month of eating what I want, just giving up all intentions of doing well. I was 3 weeks late on my period and had hormones from hell....not an excuse, just a factor. I also didn't go to the gym, as my gym buddy was on vacation (I couldn't have possibly gone without her! ha ha) , when she was back, I was feeling really crappy. Luckily, I didn't do too much damage....I am at 179 lbs.
My boyfriend and I just got back from Tucson, it was a great mini-vacation, getting to see his sons. I Tucson. So many good places to eat, palm trees and fun places to shop. Thankfully, my brain seems to back from vacation also. It's Monday, and a fresh start is here.
I have packed a good, healthy and low-carb lunch. I have low-carb snacks, and I will do my 3.5 mile walk at lunch. I am going to the gym after work. I am so ready to get back in to the losing game! I really am. I have a checkup with my surgeon scheduled for the 17th. My goal is to weigh in at 167 by that date!
I have an appointment with my PCP on the 6th, just an annual physical. I am going to ask him to check my hormones. I will be 43 this November...guess I could be starting the "change". It sucks, but it is what it is.
I almost find it comforting that I have only gained back about 3-4 lbs in the month I took off of dieting. I guess maintenance will be fairly easy! ha ha ha For now, my mind is geared towards getting to goal first.........THEN we can talk maintenance!! Have a great week, everyone!
