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!

Okay, okay.....yes, I am killing it, and I plan on keeping it up. It's amazing how much better I feel mentally and physically when I exercise my body and eat low-carb. It's actually a better high than eating my favorite foods, so I am not sure why I keep getting pulled back in to bad eating.
Last week was pretty much a write-off. I came down with a bad summer cold. It sucked!! I didn't go hog-wild with eating, but I also didn't stick to low-carb. I definitely didn't get any exercise in after Monday of last week. My boyfriend's birthday was Saturday, so we at out and I also made a luscious chocolate cake. Of course, I sent what was left of that bad boy to work with him yesterday! Had to get it out of the house! ha ha
Yesterday, not only did I stick to low-carb, but I was very active!! I went on my 3.5 mile walk at lunch, met AnneMarie at the gym after work, then after dinner my boyfriend and I took a challenging 2 mile walk. I was down to 175 point something on the scale this morning! Yay! I am not sure if it's possible for me to get to my 167 lb goal in less than 2 weeks, but I will try my hardest.
The NM State Fair will be here mid-September. My next goal will be to walk around the fair very comfortably in my size 10 jeans. Very doable. I am solidly in a size 12 now.
I had my appointment with my PCP yesterday morning. He said my cholestoral was high, at 232. *sigh* Well, I think if I stick to my exercise and low-carb eating, that will be resolved, nicely. I have to get some blood drawn in order to have my hormone levels checked. He put in the lab orders for that and other tests. So, I just need to pick a morning and go. I have to be fasting, so yeah.....not today....I needed my coffee. ha ha ha
Hope everyone has a wonderful week, and sticks to their goals.......we will feel so much better if we do!! Go get 'em!!
