:biggrin0: he was happy that i had lost 53# in 3 months and had not lost a whole lot. he said if i had lost alot he would be concerned with malnutrition. so i guess i should be happy with that if he is. also he asked me if i snack and how often. i do usually have some kind of snack in the afternoon. whether it be a fruit, peanut butter, cheese stick or a protein shake. he also wants my cals up to 1000-1200 per day. that is insane, even with the protein shakes i would have to drink 3 of them. how the hell can i do that when i can barely get in 50 or so of water. then he wanted to know how often i was exercising. i told him 5-6 times per week. it is not quite that but i was not in the mood for another lecture. already got one about the snaking!! well i guess that is enough blah blah blah... well talk later. going for a weekend trip with the in laws. wish me luck. first trip since surgery and hope it goes well. had to pack quite a bit of stuff just to be able to make it through the weekend.

Good luck this weekend Laura!

Doctors know quite a bit, BUT NOT everything, I feel we know our bodies best and are able to use their expertise and knowledge with what we know to make the healthiest decisions.

By the way, I think 53 pounds is an excellent weight loss!
