Just a Quick Update

I just saw my primary care doctor and I am now down 41 pounds. I know my weight loss is slow, but it has been steady. I am anxiously awaiting my Sept. 4th appointment with the surgeon. I will blog again then to let you know how that meeting goes.

Down a few more pounds

On Aug. 5th, I saw the behaviorist for the last time. We discussed how pleased we both are with my progress and that if I feel I need more counseling in the future, I can call for another appointment. Unfortunately, any future appointments will have to be with her replacement, because she is retiring. I wish her well, as she has certainly changed my life for the better.

I did have a loss, so I am down a total of 38 pounds now. My next appointment is with the surgeon, Dr. Toder, on Sept. 5th, to start the process of getting medicare to approve the surgery. This may be the biggest hurdle of all. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
