New week, starting over

Monday, June 24, 2013

I'm sitting upright at the computer. That's different.

I'm down to 194 pounds, which lends credence to my thought that my rapid post-op weight gain was water. My belly was a little distended. It's soft, there are no hard spots, and I'm not running a fever, so it's not the kind of distended that warrants a call to the doctor. I mentioned it to Jim. He said it looked to him like my belly was bigger, but he didn't want to say anything (wise choice, darling).

I'm having to deal with hunger. In my normal life, I rarely get genuinely hungry, so hunger isn't something I experience. But I'm fighting off cravings. I know I'm not getting exercise, so I won't be burning off any extra calories. I got out the popcorn popper. I expect to be eating a lot of air-popped popcorn this week. (All that chewing distracts me from cravings.)

I walked around the block last night. I plan to try that three times today (with breaks between each attempt). Jim picked a couple of kohlrabi yesterday, which gave me a lot of kohlrabi greens: I hope to make kohlrabi greens curry tonight. I'm a little tired right now, but it's time for me to start moving a little bit.

But perhaps a nap first ...
