I am wearing what I call "Old Lady Pants." They are stretchy elastic waist pants that probably are not flattering on any body type. The OLP's are a step up from 5 weeks ago when I refused to wear anything below the waist. Then I upgraded to a giant pair of gym shorts that 65MD owned. The goal being, nothing, and I mean nothing touch that incision. Yesterday, I graduated to OLP's. This morning, I even managed to find a top that matched.
The incision has healed nicely and thanks to vitamin E the scar is diminishing. I had walking in to the bathroom to toss the vitamin E 'shells' into the trash, when I got a glimpse of my behind. I think I actually gasped audibly. That thing is HUGE!!
It is time for action. No more, "Poor, pitiful me, I just had major surgery!" That time is gone. Today has got to be the day I draw the line in the sand and actually do something. It will have to be low carb because, I don't have what I need for Trim Healthy Mama. It is OK, it is an easy transition from low carb to THM should I decide to do it.
I got a harsh return to reality. I needed it. If I can keep that image burned into my memory, I'll never overeat again!
