My Doctor Isn't Going To Be Impressed....

So a week from tomorrow I go in for a fill. My doctor had told me he wanted to see a 10 lb loss by the next time I saw him. How much have I lost so far you ask? I have lost 0 lbs. I was down a couple then put it back on then down again and then up. I am not sure what is up with me lately but after my last fill I had some struggles. I ate a lot of sliders because I was afraid of getting stuck the first couple weeks. I was always starvings and was taking in too many calories. The past couple weeks have been better but just too much eating out and socializing.

I am still not staying full very long... maybe 2ish hours after solid protein. Hopefully this fill will give me some more staying power. Tomorrow is my 6 month anniversary. I am disappointed I didn't do better this past month, but I am also so pleased with what I have done. It still averages out to about 10 lbs a month and that is amazing.

I am really struggling with all the dreary cold weather here in MI. It makes me want to eat and stay inside. I don't want to exercise and I just want to sleep. I often have a lot of trouble with February and am glad to say goodbye for another year. 19 days an counting until the first day of spring!

Happy Monday!

I am feeling the same way. I have not lost anything in the last 6 weeks. I go for my third fill today but I feel like I am eating way too much and starving if I dont eat sliders...Hang in there!

10 lbs. a month is amazing! Don't worry too much. Restriction is such a fickle friend. Too tight or too loose isn't the same as just right. I hope you can get it sorted out but don't be too hard on yourself. There is a huge learning curve with this thing. Learning the right foods, portions, chewing correctly and eating slowly has been really hard for me.
Take Care!! Oh, and I love the cupcakes background. :)
