I went to the surgeon for my 4th fill today. Even though I have been loosing around 3 lbs. per week (by his estimate) I needed a slight tweak as I am starving between meals. He inserted .3 cc's into my belly. Now I am at 5.5 cc's. I am hoping this is my green zone.
Anyway, have I mentioned I adore my surgeon and his staff? He is the first doctor in a long time to give me good news (other than my OBGYN). I do not mind at all going to weigh. That is a huge, I mean HUGE, accomplishment. He thinks I am pretty close to the green zone. In fact, I kind of had to talk him into a small tweak. That is the problem with being a bit of an over-achiever. I struggle, but do not let myself go over calories so on the scale and the BMI charts I am accomplishing more than I should be.
Well the other day I posted a question about volume of food or calorie count. I asked my surgeon and he said he does not care about volume if I am religiously counting calories. He said I shouldn't mess with a good thing. I think I tend to over analyze things a bit. I am a black and white rule follower kind of gal so it throws me for a loop when he won't give me specific guidelines. I should be thankful he thinks I am doing well.
I am back on liquids for 48 hours.........which sucks!!!! However, if you order a Starbucks Skinny Latte with a scoop of protein powder it is around 150 calories and 21 grams of protein. That makes liquids worth it! Today I can justify liquid calories...............aaaawwwwwwww heaven!!!!!!!!!!!!!
