Had my 3 mo visit today

Feb 02, 2009

I had my 3 month post op visit today.   I was so nervous when I stepped on the scale.  Every scale is different and mine said 199.6 this morning.  The Dr's scale said I was 199.4.  That means I lost exactly 20 pounds since December 1st.  I do wish it were more, but when was the last time I lost 20 pounds in 2 months.  That is still 10 pounds per month - even if I did only lose 6 pounds in January.  I still need to get my labs done and hopefully I can get them done next week. I don't see the Dr for 3 more months.  My goal by then is to be down to 175.  might be a little aggressive for the pace I've been going. The nurse said I have lost 53.6 pounds since my pre-op appt on September 30th.  I can also increase my food to 1/2 cup.  I'm almost afraid to do that.  Maybe having more calories might actually allow me to lose a little faster.  Keeping my fingers crossed!!
