Today was another doc visit with the surgeon to see check my progress. I wasn’t looking forward to it, as I was going to have to see the same one that gave me such a hard time last month. However, I was sort of pleasantly shocked!!
She entered and asked how I was doing and I told her great. This time, she wasn’t negative. She said she could see (on paper) that I’d lost more than just a couple pounds. I told her “yes” and that I was happy with that. She talked to me for awhile and asked quite a few questions. I don’t remember what they all were. I do remember feeling like I just wanted to get out of there.
I know she wasn’t completely happy, but didn’t have reason to complain either. With my additional weight loss, I’m .1 lb. from reaching my first goal. To that, she said, “let’s just call it goal made”!! I was thrilled with that. It means that I’ve now officially lost 50 lbs. and have hit my first major step in this process.
I still have 20 to 30 lbs. to go, but I’m well on my way now!! She was either satisfied enough or just didn’t want to deal with me, but I don’t have to go back again until January. She said seeing me on my 1 year anniversary will be good enough because I’m going down at a steady rate, despite it being SLOW.
I’m just so happy so glad that I’ve made this first goal. This was huge!! I know it’s been slow and it might not make her happy, but I’m happy and that’s all that matters. I didn’t get this surgery for super fast or easy weight loss. I knew I was going to have to work at it and working at it, I’m indeed doing!!
Onward I go!!
