Monthly check in with Dr. Katz

I saw Dr. Katz today and weighed in at 181 lbs (down 78)! It felt great! I was down 12 lbs since I last saw him 5 weeks ago. He was very pleased with my weight loss and told me to keep up the good work. I didn't get a fill as I am still sitting with really good restriction. In fact, ever since I got sick I think I am a little too tight. I can keep down solids but get stuck a lot more. I don't pb a lot but it does happen sometimes. I almost wish I would have gotten a tiny unfill today as I had an extremely hard time eating chili at lunch. If I don't loosen up a bit after a week or two I might have a small unfill.

Though this restriction may sound good... it is very limiting and I am not eating as many healthy foods as I would like. I eat a lot of the same softish safe foods and I don't think that is good nutrition. I just keep thinking that once I am over my sickness entirely I will loosen up a bit.

I can't believe I am so close to 80 lbs down! I am hoping to get there before the end of the week, but I don't know if that will happen. I know with the holiday weekend and LOTS of plans I probably won't stay on my A Game. I am okay with that... but I know I will pay a price for it. But, as we always say... "this isn't a diet... it's a new way of life".

Happy Tuesday!
