Well! I have now lost 18 pounds by MY scale--but have to lose another 1 or 2 to make my 17 pound weight loss on my DOCTOR'S scale. I actually went into their office yesterday to just check on their scale myself! And yes, I need about a 2 pound "cush."
I hope hope hope I can be in a good position to get my official weight documented on Monday, so I can move on to the next phase: a referral to my surgeon. I know there'll be a lot of additional things I need to do, and I want to get going on them! I'm still holding out hope that I might be able to have the surgery over the winter break, since that is the best for my teaching schedule, but I have no idea of their schedule at the University of Washington hospital (which is where I want to go). My nutritionist has said it might be too short of a time period, as they tend to be quite thorough there.
I did have some coffee today (have really cut down), but plan on being super good this weekend!
Thought I'd share a vision board that I made last year when I was focusing on raw foods. However, I think it still applies!
