Another 2 lbs lost this week. I also saw Dr. Jan yesterday and he seemed very happy with my weight loss. He took some labs to see if I'm getting all my vitamins and iron, etc. I am supposed to go back in 3 months for another follow up. Unfortunately, that appointment won't be with Dr. Jan. He told me that he is leaving Legacy Obesity Inst. That makes me a little sad. I really liked him as my Dr. and as a person. It was the just the beginning of a really crappy day! Suffice to say, I'm having some problems at home and I pray that they can be worked out. I love my husband so much and I can not lose him. I know we'll figure things out, but I'm just feeling very raw right now. Prayers would be helpful.

What really helped, I think, is the swimming I did this week. Great exercise and I just love to swim......I'm kind of like a fish in the water. Guess I better continue to hit the pool.
I've hit a plateau.....!!!!

Good thing I talk to so many people here at OH, and read the boards as much as I do, or I would be extremely stressed out! Why? For the last two weeks I haven't lost a stinkin' pound! I haven't gained (thank God) but no loss what so ever.
Anyway, from reading other's posts, I know that around the 3 to 4 month mark, most hit their first plateau. I really hoped to skip that part. Now the question is: How to get past this? Do I lower my calories? Do I exercise more? Lot's of people say they don't change anything and the weight just starts coming off again. They say the plateau stage is your body catching up with everything it's gone through.
So, I guess I'll be patient. Keep doing what I'm doing and pray for the best. Stay positive.

I just can't believe it! I know I continue to say this.....but this was the best thing I ever did for myself. I feel great. My body just sooo...appreciates the weight loss. I lost 3 lbs. this week. So far, no stalls (knock on wood, lol). That would drive me crazy.

It's amazing how I can feel the difference in my clothes though. I'm lovin' it! I just wish the tummy and gas pains would calm down. Then things would be ALL good.
