Weight: 189 Post Surgery
Exercise: Once around the block, 1/4 of a mile.
Frustrating when you come out of surgery and have just gained the 5 pounds back that you thought took 90 days to get off. From what I am told it is just “post surgery weight” & it should come off pretty quick. My poor stomach is soooo bloated, I look like I am 6 months pregnant. 4 incisions now live on my stretch mark free tummy, which kind of pisses me off. Don’t get me wrong, I’m NOT really that vain, I am just proud that I took such good care of my skin over 4 pregnancies and now in one day, BAM, 4 new little scars to enjoy! Lovely! The nurses insured me that they will pretty much disappear, so we’ll see. I will keep you posted on my healing progress as I am able to start exercising more.
I did have my Husband walk a lap with me around the block today. The doctor, well nurses, my doctor doesn’t really talk much, said that I will heal faster if I walk a little each day. Stay strong, but not to over do it. No regular exercise until I see my doctor 10 days post surgery. That will be next week sometime.
I feel like I am back at the beginning of my weight loss battle, which sucks. Keep a positive outlook is what I keep telling myself. It will all drain away and the weight will come right off. Maybe if I am lucky even a few extra than before. 🙂
