riddle me this

Thursday, January 10, 2013

After my surgery, my friend took my kids for 9 days while I recovered. Realizing that my recovery was going much more smoothly than we'd anticipated, my husband and I took advantage of being temporarily kidless, and went out to dinner every night. With no exercise and eating at restaurants, I managed to lose 6 pounds.

Then the kids came back. I've been working out the best I can (which, right now, means walking a lot--- I still haven't been cleared for anything vigorous, and I cannot lift weights for another 6 weeks or so). I have also been vigilant about what I put in my mouth. The results? I've gained back 4 of the 6 pounds I lost.

    You're fine. Whenever there are "quickie" jumps up or down on that scale, there is a physical cause for it. The end result will be that within a couple of weeks it will all balance back out again. Keep that recovery going and get back to your stronger self!

  • 1DRWOMAN lost some muscle...I lost when I was in bed with a broken ankle too eating fast food everyday because my man doesn't cook!!!! Also stress (kids) matters...that's why I chose not to have them...HA HA HA HA....seriously....don't fret. If you're taking any meds they will effect the scale as well. Just keep going like you'll be sweet! Nice that you got to hand your kids off for awhile....too bad you had to be in pain to do it instead of frolicking in some field feeling free as a bird :)
    Have a great week and listen to your body! I speak from LOTS of
