Here we go...!!! Wendell weighed in at home this morning, so I'll be keeping track of his losses here in the next months. He had been using a 1600 ADA diet, but the doctor decided to eliminate 400 calories more, and he's now on 1200 calories. He can do this.

I have joined him on the diet.. I also started at 1600 calories, but now am seeing some results with 1500, as of Monday. It's Wednesday. As of March 21st, I've lost 6#, and it hasn't been too difficult to stay with the program.

Exercise: we are heading to the pool today for an hour or so walking.
I have walked around the yard and have done very little, but some yardwork, and I feel that's why I've lost so quickly.

Tomorrow I will post some of his meal plans. They are filling despite the lesser calories. It helped to limit to 1600 calories for a week before going to the 1200. He is adjusting.

1200 calories

Wendell went to see his PCP today. He got his diet and instructions. The surgery he desires is not done at Butler and the alternative is not covered by Medicare. Pray we can find a surgeon closer than Pittsburgh for his lap banding.
Today, so far, so good. We are adjusting well to the program. More later..
