Well as far as my surgery goes, I have to say it went pretty well. I get tired kind of easy but my pain has gone down. I'm still at my aunt's and uncles, but I am definitely ready to get home. I am getting a little cabin fever. I miss my boyfriend. I miss knowing where everything is and I miss being able to cook foods I like eg all my favorites from my tracker.

I'm really frustrated and a little apprehensive about my next weigh in. I haven't been eating badly. I'm not sure if i was eating too much or not enough. What I'm more concerned about is my activity level is way down. I've been sitting more with the stitches and the pain and not having a ton of energy. Last night I joined my uncle on a walk with the dogs and it wore me out. I'm really worried about what will happen as far as the scale goes. I was on a good track and I guess I'm just feeling kind of de-railed from my surgery setback. I don't feel that I have lost anything, but i'm worried the decreased activity may have caused some gain. I've been doing well with water, but I don't know. Really worrying won't help and Sunday morning weigh-in will be here soon. Then I had the thought that perhaps I don't weigh in on Sunday. Perhaps I give myself a week of normalcy (I'm working from home for a few more weeks) so I can get back into my wii fit routines and cooking routines and then weigh in so my body has a week to balance out after healing. But does that mean I'm trying to cheat? I'm just worried that if I see a gain on the scale, that I'll feel so disappointed and the emotional setback may not help. I don't know. Thoughts?

    I agree, if the weigh in will mess with your head then leave it be this week & just carry on with your recovery. For goodness sake mrs you've just had surgery & you have to give your body a chance to get better without beating yourself up about it!! Do what you can whilst you can & once you're better you can start over with building your exercise back up & getting your eating back on track, just try to make the best choices you can until you get back home and get back on program & what worked for you before will work for you again - you've shown you can do it so just make the most of being taken care of & take the time to recover your body!!

    Try drinking a little more to counteract any fluid retention & try to keep your mind as occupied as possible to stop you from worrying about what might or might not be a minor blip in the road - you never know you might well have still lost anyway :))

    Take care of yourself & you'll be back to getting on with your program in no time!

    If seeing a gain is going to mess with your head, skip it. Pain pills can cause water weight gain as well as constipation. Your body had a shock and is healing. Dont worry about the scale, just focus on healing and returning to normal. Hang in there.

    Try not to fret. Let your body heal. Give yourself a bit of slack and when you've recovered then get back to it. Heal first.
