I was so close to what I thought was my goal weight that I could honestly envision myself getting there.
Unfortunately, I doctor just changed it for me. He wants me to lose 10 pounds before surgery. Actually, he'd like 15, but I pointed out that I would be dangerously thin.
I mean, my BMI is 21, my body fat percentage is 23, but he looked at a height/weight chart for my ideal weight.
When I suggested that losing 10 pounds could take me a long time, since I'm losing slowly and have just come off a 7-week plateau, he suggested I try Slim Fast.
I pointed out that those lose weight quick plans are not healthy and you gain the weight back, his comment was. "So what? At least you'd be at the right weight for surgery."
So, I'm going to try to kick up my exercise, but I'm not about to kill myself to make his figure.
He WILL NOT be my surgeon.
