The surgery feels like it was a year ago already. My incisions are healing nicely. They can still be a teeny bit sore at times, but only when they get bumped.
I have come so far in two weeks.
- I am down 8lbs since surgery.
- I am already eating soft solids like white fish, scallops, tuna with light mayo, polenta, etc.
- I am exercising
- I’ve been back to work a week already
I just feel great in general and feel really hopeful.
I have to admit that the scale is freaking me out a little because my weight stayed the same since I started soft solids last week and I even gained .6 from my lowest weight of the week. I know that sometimes happens when you start exercising again from water retention in your muscles, but it is freaking me out.
I have been journaling everything that I eat and the most calories I ate last week were around 1200. You would think with exercising 3 times and eating 900 – 1200 calories a day, I would be losing like crazy and not gaining.
I think I need to calm down though and try to stay off the scale a bit. The weight is going to come off, right?
I can’t wait to meet with the nutritionist on 11/24 and get a bit more guidance. I have no idea what my calories eaten range should really be.
I’m also looking forward to starting the 12 week class through Heart and Wellness. It’s nice because it’s automatic exercise along with education and support. Looks like I’ll be starting that 11/30.
