Check up (7 months)

May 06, 2011

Went today for my 6 (actually 7) month check up.  I think the scales at the doctor's office are a bit off, to my benefit :)  The doctor's scale shows I have lost almost 105lbs!  But, my scale shows closer to 100lbs.  Last year at my first visit, the scales were mis-calibrated.  I think they are off again.  So, I am only going to claim 100lbs here.  

My labs were fine, my chief complaint is constipation.  I requested that I reduce my Iron pills to once every 3 days and the doctor is OK with that.  I go back in 3 months and we'll evaluate Iron levels then.  I have always had this reaction to Iron.  I also need to get in more water, which should help.

The doctor suggested that I am doing too much weight lifting.  I thought that was a strange comment.  He wants me to do less and thinks it will speed my weight loss.  I am all for speeding up the weight loss, but I wonder if I should just keep up what I am doing so I don't lose ground.

I started out wearing size 30/32 and I am now in size 20 jeans and XL tops.  People are really noticing.  Some of my friends are calling me skinny.  It's all relative, because I still outweigh everyone by at least 80 lbs.
