Two other thoughts

Standard

One………..

I plan on keeping Tuesdays as my official weigh-in day.  Official where I report it to all of you here on the interwebs.  My stalkers.

Two…………..

Instead of buying the expensive 100-calorie packs of almonds I decided to buy a large bag of 32 ounces for $9.99 and baggie all of them up myself.  With the nutrition label set for 30g (or 1/4 cup) at 170 calories, I did about two thousand snack baggies of 15g each, or 85 calories.  Took probably 30-45 minutes.  Don’t know how much money I actually saved, You have to figure time, as well as cost of baggies.  Probably not much.  One thing I know for sure…..it takes some emotional strength to measure out two thousand baggies of almonds at 15g each.  Or insanity.

Week 15 Check-In

Standard

Date: 5/26/15

Loss(-)/Gain(+):  -4.5 lbs

Current Weight:  229.5 lbs


So this was my last weigh-in at the Medi-Weightloss Clinic of Deerfield, Illinois, before they close their doors on 5/31.  According to their scale I weighed 228.8, but I’m converting my “official” numbers to be off of my own scale, a Fitbit Wi-fi scale.

I have decided to go it alone, with periodic visits to my family doctor.  I need to change my appointment so that I see her before my phentermine pills run out (I have 3 weeks worth left).  If she doesn’t want me on the pills, fine, but then I need to understand from her how to taper off properly.  I also want to understand from her what her opinion is on B1/B6/B12 shots….which I received B1/B6 shots once per week and B12 twice per week.  I have no idea if the shots helped, or what they were to help…..

Here are my stats:

Starting Weight Current Weight Goal Weight Weeks on Plan Total Lost Weekly Avg Monthly Avg Pounds to Goal
282 229.5 175 15 52.5 3.5 15.155 54.5

I certainly do not think I will lose 3.5 pounds per week average the entire time.  I expect it to slow down.  If I lose an average of 2.5 pounds per week I will hit my goal by my mom’s birthday, 10/25.

OK, laundry is calling.  More soon.  🙂
