Day 300 in my quest to be healthier when I meet up with Mickey
Today’s plan was to weigh myself for the first time in a couple weeks. Before my cancer surgery I had lost a total of 43 pounds since last August. It was bouncing around between 43 and 42.5 and 42, etc… After my surgery, even though I kept eating well right through, I put on an unexpected 10+ pounds. I just chalked it up to my body being in fight mode. I had had seven stab wounds (incisions really) to my abdomen, and my body was angry. Plus in the first three+ weeks after the surgery, I wasn’t moving around very much. My body was holding on to everything, water, air, fat, everything. Now five+ weeks later, my body is making the adjustment at last. So to my pleasant surprise when I got on the scale this morning, I was two pounds lighter than my pre-surgical weight. Woo hoo! I finally have post 45 pounds now. I have been rounding to that number for a bit, so it feels great to finally really be there.
Whew! Now to keep making healthy food choices and to move more…meet you at the Kingdom!
