Saw the doctor today

I saw Dr. M. for my 6 month post-op check up today.  He walked in and said, “Wow, look at you!”  I lost 18 lbs since my last visit 6 weeks ago and he’s very pleased with my pace.  I told him that I feel great, my hunger/food intake is right where I want it, and everything is going great.  He said that he didn’t think I needed an adjustment and I told him, no, this is great.  I asked him what he had set as his goal for me and he said between 105-150 lbs lost, hoping for the higher end of the scale on that.  I told him that I’d set my own goal of -190 lbs and he thinks that is very possible, especially with where I am now.

The highlight of the visit was that he asked me if I would like to come speak at a seminar!  He said that I am already a success story and he would love to have me come and tell my story and answer questions.  He also said to make sure to give him before and after pictures.  He has a bunch of others on his website.  He didn’t say, ok come to the seminar on this date, so I’m not really sure if I should just show up at one or what.  LOL

Well, that’s it.  Things are getting hectic with school just starting and all that.  I sent my baby off to her first day of kindergarten last week.  My big guy started second grade too.  I feel old!

Tomorrow is my 6 month bandiversary so pictures will be coming soon.

    Great job!

    My oldest started K today! It’s ‘phase-in’ week at her school, so she was only there 1.5 hours, but she had a blast…

    Congrats on the great doc visit. 🙂
