Dr. Poon 24 Week Update

It's been 25 weeks now but I will talk about my 24 week appointment because it is important for you all to read. Everyone keeps saying how do you do it??? Is it hard??? Have you ever fallen off??? Well, the answers are I am not perfect. Yes, it is hard. This is the first time I have fallen off. I gained 2 pounds and lost 1 pound of fat. Dr. Poon was not upset just said we needed to take this next week and get back on track. I thought to myself and am not upset with myself because I did make the decision to eat something I knew I was going to have to face up to. So I left the office and went downstairs purchased a small bag of salt and vinegar chips and ate them. Once I was done I said to myself I am better than this and will have to prove it to myself this upcoming week. We fall but our job is to pick ourselves up and keep on going.

This week I have lost the 2 pounds that I gained and some more on top of that. I will be heading into the office again next Tuesday morning and hope that I have proved it to myself that I can certainly continue to do this. For all of you out there that follow me please remember to leave a comment as I do need the support just like I support you all. Keep up the great work. If you've e-mailed me in the past 2 weeks I am slowly trying to catch up and will e-mail each and every one of you back.

Off to go and enjoy a salad with fresh shrimps and yummy dressing.

That's awesome that you're sticking with it! I've heard crazy things about Dr. Poon - he's strict, but if you stick to it and make life changes, it will really change your life and lifestyle. Congrats!

Keep it up!

remember that you are in this for the long run Vern. Don't beat yourself up for what happened, just be determined to put it behind you and stay strong in the future. I'm rooting for you, gf.

@ Narci - Dr. (Terry) Poon is actually really nice. I've enjoyed my road with him and he has been very considerate towards me and what I want out of this. It's strict but then again which diet isn't. lol

@ Clare - Thanks again for your support.

You are doing amazing !!!! You inspire me and I so enjoy reading your updates. I have been on the diet for 10 wks now and have lost 19 lbs (yes, I have done some 'socializing' along the way)

@ Deb - 19 pounds way to go!!!!! That is awesome. Thanks for leaving me feedback. I loved reading about your success. Keep up the awesome work!

Claudia and Luke said...

ok so how do you get in to see this Doctor?

Veronica said...

@ Claudia - you have to get a referral from your family doctor. There must be some type of problem (i.e. blood pressure, sleeping problems, and more)...even if someone in your family has a problem you can get the referral.

This has been a wonderful change of lifestyle for me. I think when you wake up and realize you need to change that this is the perfect way of doing it.
