I got a new job at the end of Oct. Been there a month now. I had my three month check up. My iron level was high but my potassium was low. Over all I was/am doing well. Been released to a regular diet. I never did a drastic dip with my weight like most of my doctors other patients have done. I have had a pretty steady slope. Which I am quite happy with. Maybe I won't lose that much hair which I have noticed since I cut my hair short.
The WLS doctors scale is different than mine by 10-12lbs while my regular doctors scale is only 3lbs off. I don't know if its because I sit in a car for 2 hours for the WLS doc and my regular doc is 5 minutes away. I decided I will go by my own scale now that I won't see the WLS doc that often. My goal is 165-145. Anywhere in between those numbers I will be quite happy with.
When I started my new job my black jean pants were a size 24 (my blue jeans were a size 22 go figure...lol different brand) I tried on the 22's because my 24's button came apart. The 22's were tight but wearable. Every month I go through my closet and try on smaller pants. Get this...Out of 6 pairs of pants with one being a black jean pair all in size 20, four pairs fit just fine and the other two are almost able to button. My size 20 black pair fit and feel a lot better than the 22's. Those 22's still don't fit. lol
I can't believe how good it feels to even be in smaller pants. If I am right its been at least 7-8 years since I have worn these pants. I will have to look to see what my highest pants size was. I can't remember if they were a 24 or a 26(probably 26). I put them away so I would remember how far I have come.
With the new job I struggle to get my fluid intake in especially on the long 8 hour shifts. I have bought those quest bars to try since I worry about how much protein I am getting in on the days I work. Lately I have been eating cheese as a night time snack. Its on my list of foods I can eat. I am wondering if its going to be one of those foods I will have to watch how much I eat of it.
I am so happy I had the rny surgery.
I have a christmas goal of 230 and I think I might actually make it.
