This is NOT what I wanted...

Saturday, January 08, 2011

I'm rather bummed. I feel TONS better after my surgery to have my gall bladder removed, and the gastro doctor to fix my reflux. However, it bums me out that I'd lost some pounds that I've now been gaining back. I've gained back 5 of the 12 I'd lost. I know I've eaten a few things I shouldn't have. I do NOT want to keep going up and down the roller coaster I've been on for years now. I want to lose at least 55 pounds. It seems I'm in a battle that is NOT in my favor. Grrrr. Anyway, today is a new day, isn't it? My goal for today is to NOT eat over my allotted calories, AND not to eat food that is not good for me.

    Hang in there....I had my galbladder out years back and I recall that after that particular surgery, it does take some time to get back on your feet. Try to refocus and do not dwell on the few pounds you have gained back....your boddy just went through a shock.

    One day at a time...

    It's very likely that at least some of the 12 pound you lost was not fat but water. Your body was so out of whack, and likely for a long time prior to your surgery. It will take some time for things to get back to normal. The best thing you can do is stay in the moment, focus on making each day a good day, and if you must sweat, do it with exercise and not worry.

    You can do it, Trace. And we're right there with you fighting each battle as it comes. emoticon

    Today IS a new day and how great that you are holding your head up and keeping with the program instead of falling for the "what's the use" thinking. Give yourself a hug!
