4/21 - When to the NUT today. She was soo proud of my progress. I told her I was concerned that I my loss was slowing down and she assured me that it would be normal. She said, "Slow and steady wins the race. She said my weight looked amazing and that I should be proud of even 4lbs because of how much 1lb of fat means to a healthier body. She gave me the go ahead to start adding in new foods with limitations:
Stay away from red meat
Stay away from pasta
Stay away from rice
Stay away from from all kinds of ice cream and sugar free junk alternatives.
And the usual suspects (No cakes, cookies, ice cream and soda (any carbonated/sparkling drink)
She gave me the go ahead to start lightly at the gym. No more than a 30 minute light weight workout (walking on the treadmill and biking). She said no weight lifting just yet, or swimming , I will have to wait until my 6 week followup with my surgeon to see if it is okay.
Since Pre-Op Diet (3/12/2017): 29lbs
Since Surgery (3/26/2017): 15lbs
Although 15lbs does not seem like a lot, it is when you break it down in weeks. That is 3.75lbs a week. That is more than I ever did without this tool. I am soo happy it's working.
