  1. Sorry, that will put me at 15 lbs from my goal!
  2. I went for my three month check up today! The Dr. told me that Most people at three months out haven't lost the percentage of weight that I have lost. She said I was three months ahead of schedule. All this time I worried that I wasn't losing like I should be. She said to expect a 15 lb loss between now an the end of January. That will put me 20 lbs from my goal! WooHoo! I am pumped!

    No it hasn't I have other people taste m food. I think I need to change my workout routine. I struggle more on taking my water and sometimes my protein. That's my answer right! I don't want to loose hope.
  4. Letezia, To be honest I don't feel like I am losing very quickly. I seem to have frequent stalls. I am also working out 5 days a week. It is a beachbody DVD called Chalean Extreme. I am in month two and it is whipping my tail!. I still struggle to get my fluids in, but try your hardest to drink all the fluids that you can. Did the Dr tell you to keep your protein around 80 grams? If I can help you anyway just give me a shout! Best of luck to you and thanks!

    Thanks... I am with you. I keep telling myself it is getting better everyday. We will be healthier and wiser individuals for doing this. I am walking as much as possible and tomorrow I will seriously be walking to help with the gas and bloating. Good Luck! You can do this.

    Hi, it looks like you're doing well. I'm doing well. So glad that it's over. I'm still sore and a little swollen, but for the most part everything is good. We'll have to stay in touch!

6 month blood tests

by 4thefuture on 01-31-2013 at 09:49 AM
Do you ever feel like your body is at war with itself? Went in for my 6 month check-up. The Dr. is pleased with my weight loss and assures me that he feels my goal by my 1st anniversary is attainable despite the recent knee surgery and 6 pounds added back to my body (weight of the new knee). The weird thing is that my B12 is high as well as my ferritin levels, but my PTH level is low. The CBC w/differentials showed my neutrophils was low and my lymphs was high. He doesn't think that my tiredness

It's been a while

Hello everyone,
Just wanted to check in and say hi. Things have been crazy these past 5 months. I had to have my knee replaced on December 20th. Darn it the thing weighs 6 pounds. So I am at the weight I was before I had it replaced. Three surgeries in 5 months has taken a toll on my body....my hemoglobin was low after surgery so I had 2 pints of blood and it still is not at a normal level. This in turn has me feeling extreme tiredness and extreme sadness. I want to weep at the least little

Thanksgiving Goals

by 4thefuture on 10-30-2012 at 06:19 PM
Hi everyone,
I have been thinking of what my goals are going to be for November...so here goes:

1. Hit the 160 lb mark. As of this morning I weigh 166.
2. Finish the Push month of Chalean Extreme and be two weeks into the Lean month.
3. Drink more water. (This has been a challenge for me from the beginning)
4. Log everything that I eat in to my fitness pal.

I have sleep apnea and since surgery I have felt that the pressure is to strong for me. I went to my Dr today and he told me to not wear it for a month and see how I feel. If I don't have symptoms of nedding it, then he will consider me cured! Woohoo, that was one of the things that I wanted to hear! Thank you Dr Scott for helping me break up with my CPAP!

Another Victory

Ok, just for kicks I decided to try on a size 10 jeans. They fit! I was amazed because the scale is creeping along. I needed that to make me stay focused on my goals!
