It was a good week with NO weight loss!

A great week with no weight loss...that sounds a little weird!

Two good things happened.....

1. I went to the doctor for a check up and all of my numbers are very improved. She did have to adjust my thyroid meds though. Hoping that will jump start my weight loss. I have lost 27 pounds, but it is happening slooooowly...it's been almost a year!

When the doc saw me, she said you look like a different person....immediately followed by "why don't you get a tummy tuck". She went on to say that with changes in my body that my stomach doesn't belong to my body anymore, it just doesn't go with mt legs, arms, and back.

I have to say I agree, because I have been hitting the gym hard and have developed a lot of muscle. I still have over 100 pounds to lose though so I didn't think a tummy tuck was an option at this time? I did leave her office and immediately made an appointment for a tummy tuck consult. It would be so nice to get this hanging skin removed....hate it.

Does the skin ever reall shrink back to normal after weight loss?

2. I was taking a Zumba class today and the teacher was a sub. Not a great teacher and I couldn't get my heart rate up. So I left the class after 20, because I wanted to get the most out of my hour.

As I was headed to a treadmill on the gym floor, I noticed a group fitness class about to begin. I asked the trainer if I could join in, and did. WOW..what a great workout.

There were about 8 people in the class and after a treadmill warmup, we began weight lifting and squats. I noticed that every time I went to a particular machine, the trainer would increase the weight, but I wasn't sure why. So I asked him what are you doing. Yep, he was totally increasing the weight. I asked why....his response


I have to say that really made my day and I keep repeating those words in my head.

I think it's going to be a great weekend

    I work for a doctor that does mini tummy tucks and for those she recommends losing all your planned weight first because she just removes the skin. I know docs that do full tummy tucks often do them alongside liposuction and do them when all weight is not lost, but I don't know about 100 lbs. At least have the consult and see what the plastic surgeon says...I don't believe most would do one until they thought it was right for you.

    Great job with good numbers. There are many non scale victories to celebrate!

    Your doctor suggested a tummy tuck now?? What will you do after you lose the other 100 lbs...have another tummy tuck? I would seriously question that if I were you. Just my 2 cents worth...
