unexpected loss

Monday, August 08, 2011

Well I just got back from my 10 day checkup at the doctor and having my staples removed. when they weighed me in the hospital before I left I had actually gained 2lbs, when I went in today I was weighed again and I am at 253! Not exactly how I thought I would reach my first 10% goal (I feel like I kinda cheated LOL).

I knew when they showed me the catscan that the cyst was HUGE but I had no idea that it would have weighed closed to 20lbs. Now I have to wait for my incision to heal enough for me to start rebuilding my core strength. I have discovered that the cyst was so big that I have hardly any muscle mass in my abdomen so just standing up for more than a few minutes is challenging.

Oh and what does one do when they are out of work for 6 weeks and they aren't supposed to do anything but walk??? I am only 1 week into this and it is sooo boring!
