I know, I know...
My pouch isn't broken, its still working, but I have to say I'm incredibly frustrated. I've been reading the OH boards a lot over the last few months, and it seems that every other post was about someone who stopped losing weight. Then I observe that everyone complains about that/those person(s) and say that its a natural part of this process, and to get over it. I understand that, I get it. And I swore to myself that I wouldn't post on the same topic, but here I am (begrudgingly) complaining about it. Granted its my blog, so I can say what I want! :)
My last doctors appointment I weight in at was January 26th, and I haven't lost a single pound for coming up on three weeks. I'm hovering right about the 233lbs range.
Yet, I know my body will do what my body needs to do.
And that it will break out of this.
That being said, I think its okay to whine and pout... Even a little bit. I didn't mention anything in my other posts since I was feeling optimistic... but its getting me down a little. And I'm sure it has something to do with my body maybe in starvation mode after weeks of clear liquids and then the past two plus weeks of me introducing soft foods.
Before the surgery, I lived my life without a scale (and subsequently, without any real way to keep me in check!) and now that I feel after this surgery, all I do is live life with the scale. All. The. Time. And since my WLS is pretty much in the open, I have people commenting: How much have you lost? Ohmigod! You look great! I'm really proud of you. Blah. Blah. Blah. Right now all I can focus on is this scale not moving!
Anyway, I just had to vent. Surely I'm not the only one???
