2nd appointmen with surgeon

Feb 27, 2009

Well today- with the help of my best friend Kels, i went to my six week follow up appointment with dr. Toder after being there on January 13th and having gained weight- she almost didn't let me go ahead in the program. So today I was so nervous to go and scared that I wouldn't be able to have lost anything. I woke up and weighed myself and was down according to my scale and so we headed out.
We got there and last time I was there I had gained 12 lbs and weighed in at the heaviest I have ever been at 376 and today i weighed in at 370. Down six lbs in six weeks. I didn't think that was took bad.
Although Dr. Toder had wished for more she was somewhat encouraging at least and agreed she did not need to see me again until surgery on May 7th. She wants me down to 350 by then and that will mean 2lbs a week for the next 9 weeks.
I know I can do it but I'm also scared too. I think dr. toder is great but at the same time I have a real hard time with criticim after I feel I have been trying so hard. I am going to need a lot of encouragement but I know I can do it. I can't wait until May 7th!
