6 months out
May 21, 2010Well a couple of days ago was my six month suriversary and I could not be happier with where I am. Saw Dr. Jossart yesterday (he and my surgeon dr. Cirangle trade off on follow up when they travel to our area). Jossart is such a nice guy and a pleasure to work with. He seemed to think i was doing great and to just keep it up. He thought my goal should be revised to about 145 which would put me at bmi just below 25. Originally we had a range of 130 to 150 but he thought having extra skin would make 145 reasonable. I weighed 140 for a short time in adult life after one of many diets and it was a good weight. we shall see. he said it was ok to lose only 5 lbs a month and in 4 months i would be at the new goal. well i wanna lose more and faster (cirangle wants that too) but we shall see. But meanwhile i am down 82 lbs from peak, 65 from surgery date and feel a zillion times better. I am so glad i did this. Can't say enough good stuff about LapSF and am really glad i chose them. they get A + from me for results. Since I am in a rural area, we have started a little support group to trade protein drinks and just talk. one meeting so far. its fun and i hope we can keep it going. I really depend on OH and it has become part of my daily routine to check in and see whats up and to blather about anything i have an opinion which is pretty much everything. but it helps remind me that dealing with weight is an everyday thing and gets me started in the right frame of mind. A good thing.
My birthday is in four months and I would love to celebrate it by having a bmi of under 25 making me officially not overweight. gotta lose 20 lbs to do it. wish me luck. D
