Nothing witty to say…

Day 12

So far so good for the most part. Yesterday was an extremely difficult day and for the first time I felt hunger pangs. I slipped a little last night and had a hand full of almonds, peanuts and raisins. Again, skipped my last Optifast supplement in lieu of my transgression.

So I haven’t blogged in a few days and there is much rattling around and in my brain that I am going to try and spew out here.

The first thing I have to say is that I went to the Bariatric office on Friday to pick up my next 10 days of “groceries.” While I was there I figured I would try to sneak on to the scale and get an idea of how much I lost. I know I have lost some weight as the NSV’s were prevalent. But none the less I really wanted to get an understanding of how my efforts were translating to pounds lost.

So while I was paying for my food I asked the front desk receptionist (who for the record is very nice and always helpful) if I could just sneak on to the scale and see what I weigh. She said “sure no problem, just give me a second.” She was dealing with another patient picking up his groceries as well so I hung out for a few minutes. I was a little bit in a hurry and it seemed to be taking a while, but I am patient. So after about 5 minutes a nurse comes to the door and calls my name. I didn’t recognize her and have never dealt with her before and immediately I got the you are bothering me attitude. The first thing she said in her best nurse ratchet voice was “next time please call ahead if you want to do a weight check.” In my nice voice I tried to tell her that I just wanted to slide in and get a weight check. It didn’t need to be documented, I just wanted to see my progress before the weekend. Which then I got the lecture that everything had to be documented. So long story short in my not so nice voice I thanked her for accommodating me and I got on the scale. Now here is the good part…for the first 9 full days of the diet I lost a total of 18lbs. I was ecstatic about that drop. I knew give the NSV’s that it would be significant, but that number was above my expectations. So we will see how the weight looks tomorrow for my first official weigh in.

There is more to tell, but I blogging this from my phone and my thumbs and thoughts aren’t aligning at the moment.

So for now to be continued….
