I was hanging with my bariatric surgeon from Centennial in Nashville, Doug Olsen, because that’s the way I roll, and I was telling him how he would so love that I was back to my hardcore ways with this 6 Weeks to Skinny Jeans thing. Even though he immediately pointed out that the tablespoon of soy milk in my iced coffee counted as liquid calories. I did inform him that the splash of soy milk (did you notice how it went from tablespoon to splash?) was the only liquid calories I was consuming in a day? So he should be cool with that. I was pointing out. No, no, no. I was bitching how I had dropped 5 pounds immediately then nada. Doug said well, that’s to be expected. Whaaaaaaaaaat? Because my body and scale like to taunt me a second time? No, because, even though I have lost 200 pounds, I have suffered from the disease of obesity, part of which is a slow metabolism. Slow metabolism is not a myth. Thank God. Big boned, well, the jury is out on that one. So, it’s not been my imagination. My body drops a few, shuts down, then drops some more. Hey, I learned something. I was also told that the shirt I was wearing would look much sexier not tucked in. This information did not come from my doctor by the way, but second-hand. When the suggestee starts bringing the sexy, I will start taking notes. I also learned that soy milk stays fresh almost as long as a Twinkie. Which reminds me, you really should watch Zombieland. Great movie.
