Okay....here it goes.....I went to my first Dr's appointment today, the first of several for my bariatric program. I had to be weighed, by a machine that measures body fat, muscle, water, and I'm pretty sure how much I had to pee. It was needless to say embarrassing. Not that they were suprised, after all it is a weight clinic for fat people.
I weigh a whopping 266.8 and my body fat percentage is 50.4. Pretty much what I figured. I was suprised to find out that for my size I have the perfect amount of muscle...go figure. I guess lugging this big 'ol body around has it's benefits. I have to lose 13.4 lbs before surgery, shouldn't be too hard, I think that's about how much I had to pee after a couple of coffees on the way there.
I am posting a pic of myself, you don't have to look (actually I would prefer if you just skipped over it, it's not pretty), the good news is I'm on my way to a healthier me. I go back to see the dietitian and the Dr on June 2. In the mean time I have a call in to schedule my psych evaluation so I will probably do that before the second.
