3 weeks post-op

Weight loss has been stalled all week. I am surprised to find myself unconcerned for now! I have heard about the notorious third week stall, and I suppose I am right on schedule - have been bouncing up and down the same pound all week on the scale. I am continuing to feel pretty good and when I visited the doctor he was very happy with the reduction in co-morbidities - we are cutting my blood pressure medication to half my current dose, and I hope to be off of it completely in a couple of months.

This week I have been working hard to get in proteins + water + a few bites of mushies. Sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day! I rarely feel hungry, and it doesn't take much to satisfy, so sticking to the plan has been easy so far. I have another week and a half of mushies/purees, then I get to try real food again!
