Had my baseline this morning. 9 follicles on each side. Blood pressure is perfect. And I weighed in at 230! Yes! 2.5lbs BELOW the weight required by anesthesia!
Now my nurse said that we're good to go. No more weigh-ins, this was it, I'm moving forward.
You'll excuse me if I don't quite take her word for it yet. When I checked in with anesthesia 6 weeks ago, they said I had to be below 232 at suppression check. That's still a little over 2 weeks, and several weight gaining BCP from now. She's double checking with anesthesia and every body that could possibly have a say in this and she'll call me back with the final answer later today or tomorrow.
It's possible that my diet is officially over today. It's possible that I have to keep it going another 16 days or so.
Tell ya what, when I finally get the official, legally binding, no they can't change their minds declaration that my diet is over, I will post the recipes for Chili-getti and Frango pie. Because that's what I intend to eat! There is nothing virtuous about this meal. It's not vegan, it's not low calorie, it's not low fat, it's probably not organic. One has a whole lotta cheese and the other has a whole lotta butter and sugar. I'm going to assume that suppression check will be the final word on my weight.
Let the countdown to Chili-getti begin! 16 days and counting.
