Things have been pretty busy around here, but I’ll get into that on another blog post. For now, I’m just going to update my weight loss…..or lack there of.
I had my doctor appointment yesterday. It went really well, although the weight loss news wasn’t good. It seems that since my last appointment, I gained 2 pounds. However, the doc told me not to worry. He assured me that it’s actually not considered a gain, but it was a plateau. The doc said that 5 lbs. or more is a gain. That felt good to know that and know that he was so understanding about it.
The doc put in 0.5 cc fill in. He said that considering it’s been since April since I had a fill, I’d done really well. He said that plateaus do happen and it’s about time that I got one. I actually forgot that it’d been that long since I had a fill because as long as I was losing, I didn’t need one. This is the first month that I actually didn’t lose anything. Up to now, I’d lost something and it was going slow and steady.
In addition to that, he checked my labs for my UTI. He was surprised that my family doc hadn’t called me with an update on the lab results. He ended up prescribing me 2 antibiotics. They both last 10 days, then I have to do labs again. I’m so glad that he cared enough to take care of it. Care in the military like that is hard to find. Maybe once and for all, I’ll finally get rid of this UTI!!
Maybe with that fixed, I’ll be more ready to exercise. Kiddo and I have been working out, but not as regular as we were. Between the heat, the UTI, and just being really busy, we’ve slacked off a little. I can’t say enough to effect weight loss though. We do something everyday, maybe just not for the full 30 minutes. The worst one can do is to not do anything at all, so we’re always doing something even if it’s just the aerobic step. I can tell you, that thing works too!! My legs look great and are so tight. I can’t remember the last time they looked this way!! HAHA
So, my weight loss is halted at about 43 lbs. after 6 months. I still have 30 lbs. to go, but I have no doubts that I’ll get there now. I can already tell the difference in my eating. I can barely take anything in and I’m stuffed!! That of course, is a good things. Looking forward to seeing the pounds come off again. I feel great, but I’m ready for the next size down and I’m ready to see that final goal….or at least get closer to it. One step at a time and no worrying!!
So there you have it. My 6 month point after the lap-band and a plateau. Moving on now!!
