Week 6 Weigh-in


Date: 7/14/17

Loss(-)/Gain(+) this Week:  -1.3 lbs

Current Weight:  254.7 lbs

Total Weight change since 6/4/17:  -33.0 lbs

Doing the weekly weigh-in 2 days early (Friday instead of Sunday).  It’s now been 3.5 weeks since my surgery, and it seems from all the closed Facebook groups for bariatric surgery to hit a stall at week 3 is very common.  Yes, I could drop another pound or so in the next day or so, but I’m not worried about it.

I also know that in 2012 when I was on Ideal Protein that as an individual, my body tends to lose pretty steadily for 3 out of 4 weeks in any month.  It is almost like the body needs to catch up with itself.

Today I’m excited to report I tried an egg today, which I scrambled.  It went down very easily, and for that I’m happy.  This means I can go out for a meal at any place that serves breakfast and have an omelet or something (of course, like 1/4 of the omelet, but still…).  I look forward to feeling a bit more normal as the weeks and months progress.  And by normal I mean being able to go out to eat sometimes and not have to be so hyper-focused on “can I that?”

It all takes time, and I just need to be patient and ride it out.
