I had my appointment with Dr. Weinstein yesterday, and all is well. He wants me to wait a month from surgery (so march 18th) to go to the gym. He said that I could go now, but based on what he's heard from me in the past, I should wait a month b/c I have a tendency to overdo it. LOL He did say I can skip Dr. J's appointment since he's taking care of me. My excess armage (like my new word?) is all extra skin, no fat. Same with my extra guttage.. I didn't drop my pants to show him my melted thighs, but I can assume it's about 50% skin and the rest fat.. lol. He basically said, whatever body parts you hated the worst before, you're going to still hate them b/c of extra skin, and I probably have about 8 lbs of extra skin on me.. JOY!
Kim, Dr. W said hi, and he asked how John was doing. :-) He's so nice! I told him that from reading your blogs, he's doing great and following the rules. :-)
On another note, in an effort to cut spending, I have quit Weight Watchers. I'm close enough to goal and really want to get close to financial goals, so I figured that would be a good start, as it's $39.99 a month, and I've been missing more than I've been attending lately!
It's so chilly today. It's fireplace and hot cocoa weather, and I'm at work and freezing.. bummer deal! I'm sipping my cinnabon coffee though, and it's delish!
I hope everyone has a great weekend! I'm going to Austin with John on Saturday to go to one of my Broadway Across America shows, Spamalot! It should be lots of fun! :) I want to go on another bike ride, but it doesn't look like the weather is going to cooperate! :(
