Doctor appointment update

The scale is being very mean to me.  Today it teetered between 300.4 and 299.8, then 299.6…then landed on 300.0.  *sigh*  On the bright side, my BMI is now under 50.  Not far under, it’s 49.9, but under is under, right? 

I saw Dr. M on Wednesday.  He saw me as I was getting weighed and said, “You’re just wasting away, aren’t you?”  He came in and gushed about my loss so far.  He said that he was very aggressive with my first fill, much more than usual, but he said he knew that I could handle it, would make good choices and take it easy.  He was hesitant to do another adjustment, but I told him that I’ve been so hungry lately and eating between meals.  I’m still managing to stay under 1200 calories a day…it has been rough though.  So he gave in and I’m scheduled for Monday morning.  He said it will be a “fine tuning.” 

Finals are over, thank God.  I had a rough couple of weeks.  I know that I got A’s in Oral Communication and Microeconomics.  I’m waiting to hear about Child Development and Current Political Issues.  I have a 4.0 cummulative over 3 semesters, so I’m really hoping I maintained that.  I got inducted into Phi Theta Kappa, the honor fraternity of 2 year colleges, on April 18th.  I’m off until August and though I was going nuts these last few weeks, I am sure I’ll be bored in no time and wishing I had summer classes.  I’m going to do lots of reading this summer because I haven’t read anything but textbooks since last summer when Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows came out.  Have I mentioned that I’m a nerd?  LOL
