113 pounds are you crazy??????

Hi all,
So I had my drs appointment yesterday. It is the 1st time I have seen my actual Dr since surgery in October. The first thing I have to say for anyone that goes to the same Dr's office as me....I was in and out in 30 minutes!!! And that was seeing Dr Fielding!!!! must be a record.
Anyway so I go in and get weighed..down 7lbs in 4 1/2 weeks, not too shabby.

I was not sure if I wanted a little fill this time, I was debating the whole time I was waiting there and in my mind decided to have a little tiny tiny fill. Well he came in looked at my numbers and said wow you are doing perfect!!! No fill for you. I was like really? and he said for a girl "my size" I am doing excellent on the weight loss front and he doesn't want me to get too tight. So he said whatever you re doing keep doing it ha. .

Well to move on to the title of my post. On the computer screen showed me what my ideal weight is. I look, and I look again and clear my ideal weight is 113lbs???? Are you kidding me? I don't think I weighed that when I was born. I was about to go in freak out mode and he said don't look at that number, he thinks I should be 120lbs???? Uhm hello again 120lbs?? So then I said my goal is 140lbs and he said great once you get there its not far to get to 120lbs. Now in my head at this point I would have said" oh yeah really then you try it" but I remembered he has a lap band so if he thinks I can get there then maybe?? I don't know its too far off to even think about. I am sticking to my 140 lb goal for now and let the chips fall as they may after that.

Anyway hope you all have a good weekend


  1. I started my weight loss journey at 266, with my initial goal being 160. The "charts" said I should weigh 137. Well, I hit 160 and the weight just kept coming off. The doctor said it would but then would level out, which it has - I'm maintaining at 142. I lost this weight between 8/08-11/09 with the majority of the weight coming off between 1/09-9/09. I think you're doing great with your weight loss - and don't be surprised if 120 really is in your future. My blog is I look forward to following your journey.

  2. Hey Carla.. you are my fellow October bandster.
    Don't worry about that number (that's all it is.;. you will know when you are at the right weight).

    ANYWAY.. guess what.. I have nominated you for the Beautiful Blogger award.. congrats

  3. Although not banded, my doc said he would like to see me between 120-125 and as I recall, our heights are about the same. I can't remember the last time I weighed that but I can't wait to see what it feels like! Your progress is amazing!

  4. You will know when you are there!!! You are doing great!

  5. I would freak out if I heard 113 or even 120! My doc and the assistants in his office are pretty much the opposite - they tell me to aim higher - like 150 or all the way up to "any BMI below 30"! So I plan to get there first, then worry about the actual final number later.

    Anyway, that is really excellent you are losing so well at a lower BMI! Way to go!

  6. Hi that is great that you are doing so well. I have read Dr F's book and found it to be great. Well done on the loss so far

  7. You know what - I think the number gave you is just that - a number. They don't take into account build, bones, etc etc and what while 113 might look ok on one person, it might look terrible on another. Just take it as it comes and you will know when you get there. I'm pretty sure of that. x

  8. Oops sorry have had a few wines lmao.. I meant, the number given TO you.. is just that.. what a mess.

  9. Carla, thanks for your sweet comments on my blog!
