I've been back at work for a week. Everyone's happy I'm back. I would have prefered to not come back, but at some point they would have stopped paying me.
It's good to be back on the bike. The Hubs asked me to only ride a few days this week, rather than riding every day. He has a good point - my body would rather I ease back in. I will be riding home tonight. It's about 100°, which is about how hot it was when I rode home Tuesday.
The awesome thing is that I'm averaging pretty good speeds now. I'm guessing that's because I'm ten punds lighter than I was day of the surgery.
My weight has kind of stabilized around 183. That's not bad - I certainly don't want to gain the weight back - but it also means I'm going to have to work at it to lose more. I've been doing a lot of walking and I've started doing crunches. But I'm going to have to pay more attention to my diet if I want the scale to budge.
I've been incredibly thirsty recently. Last night I woke up three times and got a drink of water. It's not troubling; it's just weird. I was accustomed to drinking a LOT of water before; I can't imagine how much I'm drinking now. It might be the heat. I'm hoping it's drowning some fat cells - maybe they'll float away.
