Six months blood work
Jan 12, 2009I got the results from my six months blood work and my B6 was too low. So I am now taking B6 per my surgeons instruction. My B12 was doubled too high, go figure. All is well, I am 185 pounds, down from 257 which is a loss of 72 pounds. I feel such a sense of accomplishment. I know wear size 14 clothes, down from size 22. I am having to give away all my clothes and buy new ones.
My goal is to get down to 140-150. Many are telling me that I am too small and that I don't need to lose anymore weight, but being 5'3, 185 pounds is still considered obese according to my BMI.
I don't think it will hurt to lose a few more pounds. Well I feel great and what to encourage anyone who is considering this surgery, that I would do it again in a heart beat. Talk to you soon.
