Scales, fickle little things they are. It has always amazed me how the scale at my PCP's office, my scale, the bariatric scale, the scale at my mothers house, and most likely the scale on the shelf at the local Wal-mart can all read something different. Is this one of those "you get what you pay for" items?!?!?
Last month when I went to the doctors there was a 3 lb difference between my scale and his. I contributed this to the time of day any my clothing. Regardless I usually go by my scale because that is the one I use consistently. So today I decided to test these scales. (Scale Whore, Remember!?!?)
So my first weigh in this morning said this:
So then I got dressed because naturally I will have clothes on when I weigh at the doctors office. And because I am a numbers person I have to know what my scale says fully dressed. I left my shoes off because I wont wear them on the scale at the doctors office. So fully clothed the scale said this:
But the true test is what will the doctors scale say?!?! Well low and behold to my disbelief the doctors scale weighed me at 232.2! (No picture of that scale, but i swear, honest Abe, that's what it said) .4 lbs less then what my scale says. Super encouraging that my scale and the doctors scale are so close together. This must mean my Taylor scale is reliable! I like that!
So since I have officially had my 3rd post-op doctors appointment I thought I would post some comparison pictures, so here you go! I am really kind of liking these! I am a total camera avoider so I don't have a lot of pictures of me...

I know I should probably wear more defining clothes when I take these pictures but everything I own is big because I hate tight. So Happy Wednesday to you all! I'm loving my progress thus far! And you all are a great inspiration! Thank you for helping me with these changes!
Oh yeah, I did get my 3rd fill today. The doctor added .5cc's giving me a total of 6.25 cc's in my 10 cc band. Next appointment is in 3 months unless I need a fill sooner. So we will see how it goes. Goal is to reach one cup of food and stay full for 3 - 4 hours. We will see what today's fill changes.
