Total Weight Loss

Wednesday WRONG!

Mid morning on Wednesday, I had some minor surgery, very minor.  It had been planned for several weeks and I really had not given much thought to the notion that it might mess up my P90X routine.  My only concession was that given the time the surgery would take from my day, that I might not have time to do a full workout.  I thought I'd just do the ab ripper if that was the case.

The surgery went fine.  No problem and I was home early afternoon with no restrictions on activity.  I naively believed that ab ripper was in my future that afternoon.  The surgery was no where near my abdomen.  Let's just say it didn't happen.  In fact, I did nothing 'right' in the weight loss arena on Wednesday.

I did not drink the amount of water I usually do.  In fact, I recall drinking hardly any.  I also hardly ate.  It was an unusual experience for me.  I did not get upset with myself.  I just chalked it up to one of those life events that was beyond my control and moved on.  I thought that Thursday would be better.  It was, but only marginally.

I got about half my water in, but still did not track my food.  I tried to belly dance.  Thursday is typically my day for that and it is low impact so I thought I could do it.  I turned it off  during the warm up.  I think that set the tone for the day since I tried in the morning.  It seemed pointless to push the water or track my eating.  I just didn't feel like eating.  It seemed to be a lot of trouble to go prepare something to eat, so I just didn't.

This morning the scales registered a big gain.  I have regained all but 0.2 lbs that I lost since October 1.  Grrr!

The good news is, this morning I was able to belly dance and I've chugged water like a camel.  I'm still not too keen on eating.  I'm not really worried about that.  I know that my appetite will return soon enough.  I'm hoping that the scales start cooperating soon too.


  1. It's sad how just having one defeating moment in the early part of the day can set the tone for the entire rest of the day and sometimes even the next few days! Ugh! I'm glad you are able to get back at it today. I hope the weight falls right back off for you so you don't have to have that mental battle with the scale!

  2. Did they give you an IV? That usually gives me a big gain from the sodium.
    Your body is probably just reacting. Hope things get better soon!

  3. feel better darlin and soooo glad the bellydance works for you too!
