Yep, that's what the doc said to me this morning when I went in for my visit and fill.
I lost a whopping 2 lbs over the past 4 weeks.
I am now getting the feeling that this doc does not have any sense of urgency if big losses are not seen.
He reminded me that I didn't put the weight on over night and I sure am not going to lose it over night.
Alright I know what he was trying to tell me..
And he wasn't refusing to give me a fill, he just thinks he would like for me to go another month and see how it goes for me.
So, we agreed ... no fill this visit.
I acknowledged to him that I do feel restriction but I do think there are a few things that I am doing that may play into my slower weight loss.
1. Not enough exercise
His response: let's connect you with an exercise physiologist (who can work with my knee and back issues)
2. Food volume.
His response: Always eat the protein first and then the rest of the stuff on your plate. He had no concerns that I could eat 3/4 C of good food (not junk).
3. Spacing of meals ... I can go pretty long into the day before I eat
His Response: don't do that.. start your day with breakfast, you should be ready to eat lunch (and feel hungry) by lunch time. You need to eat 3 meals a day with 2 or 3 healthy snacks.
So I am going to give this approach a whirl..
The doc's scale did not show Onderland, but it was just a pound away.
I am sure I will be there by next month.. and you know what.. that's ok with me, because I am doing just fine!
