6 Weeks Post Op
Mar 15, 2017
Wow, I can't believe it's been 6 weeks since my surgery! Even bedridden with pneumonia, the time is flying by.
I'm feeling better than I was but still coughing a lot and short of breath when I walk. The doctor told me to stay in bed and get plenty of rest, and warned me that the pneumonia will trigger my asthma, which I already knew from past experiences. I'm so sick of resting; thank goodness I have my computer, books, video games, and crochet to keep me busy. Today is my last day of antibiotics. I hope I won't need more again.
I lost 4.2 Lbs in the past week, which brings my total weight loss since starting Optifast to 55.6 Lbs gone! Woohoo!
I weighed 248.4 this morning, which means I've met my second goal of getting below 250 already! I never thought that would happen in 6 weeks; wow! I'm so thrilled about that. I am now officially closer to 200 than 300! I can't remember the last time I saw the 240's. My next mini goal is to get into the 230's, lol.
Here are my stats so far. I figured I'd better copy and paste them in case I lose them on my computer:
