Not much going on

I gained one pound last week (I'm thinking it's fairly obvious when I gain... I don't even bother posting for that week) But I was down 2 pounds this week. Less than 40 pounds to -100. Maybe by that time I'll be in a smaller size, huh?? I know it's just numbers, but it so bugs me I am still wearing the same size jeans after 62 pounds lost!!!! Un-freaking-believable.

On the good side.. I finally made an appointment with my PCP to see about getting a CT scan ordered for my abdomen. It is getting bigger seemingly daily. It is possible that it is a natural thing (I watch Biggest Loser...< my only reality show>... and I see other big girls that seem to look the same way.) It could just be that I am losing weight around the area, making it look bigger. Does that make any sense??? I am experiencing pain in the area though.. and it seems to be growing a bit lopsided... so I guess it is time to have it looked at. I am almost at the point where my surgeon would fix a hernia (he said he would not fix it until I am at a 40 or less BMI. I am at about 43 or so now.) I just dread the though of a possble surgery (after all I've been through... can ya really blame me??? ;)

I'll post when I get an answer from the doctor. Have a great week everyone.

P.S. I think you haven't gone down a size only because of the type of clothes you are wearing! Don't beat up on yourself too much, and also try and keep a journal, I think it helps!! Love Donna

62 lbs lost! That is so fantastic! I know what you mean about looking a little lopsided. I'm having fun with the laying on my side part. I can feel my hip bones and everything, but the fat is pooled on the bed. Then I roll over and it all shifts to the other side. What fun!

Yea, I know the hernia stuff is scary for you, but I have to believe that this time will work out and you'll feel like a million afterward.
