I Lost 6 Pounds This Week! GO ME!

Recommended Posts

I think your thread may have given me the inspiration I need to get my butt in gear :) I'm about 300lbs right now, but I'm 5' 10" and have a big frame anyway, so I look like I'm about 200 (so everyone else says). Nothing has worked up to this point, and I've just been wondering if I could do it, but after reading this, I think I may have the inspiration to try again ^_^

 

Thanks! And good luck to getting back to your pre-pregancy weight! It sounds like you're well on your way :)

I am glad I can be an inspiration to you. Loosing weight is a hard, long, and bumpy road. If you can try and find a doctor that is a Bariatric Physician and specializes in weight loss. I do have to tell you that going to this type of doctor isn't cheap and my doctor doesn't accept insurance....cash or check only. I think it's about $700 a year just in office visits and about $600 in meds....depending on what the doctor gives you and if you do generic vs name brand. I had to wait till I saved up the money....I did cheat a little, I used some of my tax refund. But I figure that I paid off all my credit cards and it's my money and I can do what I want with it.

Good Luck if you 'get your butt in gear' I know you can do it!

I'm going to see if my family doc can get me an appointment with a specialist. I'm not sure if the doc would charge any extra here, we have free healthcare with MCP, but the drugs would still be a lot. But at this point, any amount of money would be worth it, I've been this size my entire life and I want to see how it feels to be "normal". And thanks for the push, I needed it :)

It is totally worth it. It was a toss up between going back to this doctor or getting bypass surgery. I opted to try this one last time and hope that I can keep the weight off. If I can't I may go in for the surgery....but I have faith in myself and so does everybody around me....so crossin every part of my body and wishin this works again.

As promised I am keeping you posted on my weight loss....maybe I should do a ticker in my siggy...might be easier. Well, anyway, Since 02.02.09, which is when I started this program, I have lost a grand total of 9.5 pounds. My FI has made me weigh myself every night so that he can see it on the scale. He says it's hard to tell by looking at me since he sees me every day. We are taking weekly pictures of me so that I can see it myself. On my way!

 

FutureMrsLewis.....IT CAN BE DONE! Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions or just need that little nudge to get you through the day! It truely is an awesome feeling!
