Ugh... I am getting frustrated. I worked very hard stepping up my work outs and eating perfectly all week. At one point I had a 4 lbs gain. I finished out the week exactly 1 lb down. That puts me at a total of 54 lbs down in 18 weeks. I am starting to get a little discouraged. My losses have been 1 lb for the last 3 weeks. I expected a much better week this week. O well, it is still going down.
I had my 3 month post op with my surgeon this week (though I am more like 4ish months post op). He was very pleased and said I looked great and was doing great. I told him I was frustrated by my rate of loss and he said that unfortunately, revisions are much tougher than first precedures. He said there is more struggle with consecutive surgeries but that I am still very successful and should be pleased. I am down 68 lbs from my highest weight pre band and that is fantastic. If I continue to lose 1 lb a week I will still make my goal by my one year anniversary. I have to just keep plugging away!
Happy Friday! Have a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend!
