Almost to my goal....

Feb 08, 2009

Once again it's been waaayyyyy too long since I wrote.  Life just seems to take over and I never seem to have much free time for anything these days.  Since my last post I have reached a weight of 165 lbs and am now wearing a size 12 jeans.  If it wasn't for my gut I would probably be wearing a size 8!!  LOL  I can't decide what should be my goal weight...140 or 150.  Dr. Olsen has said to not go any lower than 140.  She said between 140 and 155 was the target numbers for a healthy BMI.  I guess I'll shoot for the 150 and see how I like it and go from there.  The past couple of weeks I have noticed that I feel alot like I did right after surgery.  I don't have an appetite and it's difficult for me to make myself eat.  I am getting my protein via protein shakes with added egg whites.  I really don't know what to make of all of this.  Is this "normal" for post op patients?  If anyone has any insight please fill me in.  Well I will sign off for now........until another day.....everyone take care.
