Week 7

This journey has been amazing! Not only do i feel better, butt now I am seeing some of the changes for myself and i can't believe it sometimes.I have to say without the support of my wife and kids, the best team of bariatric doctors and nurses and my loving God Jehovah, I couldn't have done this. My body seems to be settling into my long term weekly weight loss pattern now, which is just fine. I lost 2/8 pounds this week and the doctor said 2-3 pounds after the first six weeks. So, if that holds true, i will lose a total of 100 pounds by the end of this year and be 2/3 of the way to my goal weight. That is unbelievable at times but I am so encouraged to continue to see the results! I have now lost a total of 66.2 pounds (my tracker is slightly off which is why we keep paper records)!

    NOt just take pictures, but be aware of how your clothing fits. I was so used to wearing loose stuff that I didn't realize how much weight loss had changed me...till I found myself giving away nearly brand new items...and buying smaller sizes!

    I hope you are taking pictures as well as doing measurements. I have difficulty seeing the difference in myself until I look at pictures. The measurements keep me sane when it seems the scale is not moving.

    Like you I have been blessed with wonderful support from family & friends. Also a wonderful medical staff that has helped me navigate this journey.
