It occurred to me I haven’t posted in well over a month now…then I realized that the bloggers I follow haven’t posted either! Could it be we are all sick of talking about our RNY surgery? Could it be that they too are at a plateau as I have been for six, freaking, long weeks. Or more? Maybe!
I’m 4 months out post-op and only down about 40 pounds. Sure 40 pounds may sound like a lot, but I am frustrated since the scale has been stuck, (yup, it must be broken!) at the EXACT (and I mean EXACT) same weight for about 7 weeks now. Huh? That’s what I say out loud every Tuesday morning (lately) when I step on it. Huh? Or more like: “what the hell?”
So, ok, clearly my body is stalled so I need to start mixing it up again. Good luck to me with it being the holidays. But wait – courage I said – courage is what counts. Do I have the courage to remain complaint? Maybe it’s more like strength, discipline, a wing and a prayer?
Anyway – wish me luck that this plateau breaks soon. I feel like I am the only RNY patient in the world who lost, (fairly easily) 40 pounds, but then – everything stopped. Well, this part isn’t fun!
To my fellow bloggers – I hope you’re still out there. Post soon and let me know you’re alive…let me know how you are doing! Happy Holidays to all!
