Yahoo! I am officially back and in recover mode. My surgery went well and I am feeling pretty good. I went back to work today and it is nice to get back into the normal routine of things.
I had really hoped that the combination of my gall bladder and gall stones would have weighed about 40 lbs, resulting in an a triumphant loss tonight at TOPS. Turns out, that was wishful thinking.
The last time I attended my meeting was March 19th
This week: 247.75 lbs
That is a loss of 1 lb. I contribute it to the fact that for 3 days, I really only ate Popsicle's and ginger ale. My appetite was diminished and I am hoping to keep that momentum going. I want to try and embrace the feeling of being satisfied with a smaller amount of food.
I went for a slow walk at work today. No speed walking for me yet. I cannot lift over 10 lbs until the end of April, so I am using those same guidelines for heavy exercise, such as running. For now, I will continue to plod away slowly.
I am focused to keep the scale going in the right direction. I am also going to start logging my food again.
Here is to a good week!
