The Universe has a way of teaching us lessons, sometimes ones we already know, so it is a gentle reminder sometimes it is a big kick up the butt. Not sure what category this one falls into but my butt is kind of sore!!!
My last post was about Should I Brag, where I told the blogosphere about how well I was doing with my weight loss.
Last weekend's weigh in bought me down to earth, I put on 500gms. Seriously, it threw me for a loop. I had changed nothing in my diet except having a very small piece of birthday cake about 10 days before to celebrate with one of my work colleagues.
So were my concerns about me not being an over-eater prior to surgery now coming true, is this surgery mainly for people who constantly over-eat? I don't have an answer to that, but I have had a crap week, beating myself up about it all.
The dietitian said not to worry it happens sometimes, but this early in the recovery?
John, my psychologist, said move on, let it be, there are always bumps in the road. Which is true, but it has been a huge wake up call.
Here I was tootling along the highway of weight loss, thinking I was gathering speed, after all I was told by Dr C that I was ahead of the game, just a few days before the weight gain.
So Universe, I've got the message, take nothing for granted, keep your eyes on the goal and work harder.
I am pleased to say this morning's weigh in sees me almost back to where I was a fortnight ago, so hopefully the numbers will keep slowly going down.
The bad thing is, I just wanted chocolate to drown my sorrows in. The good thing is, I didn't buy any.
Has the Universe been talking to you lately? Hopefully if it has it has been in a positive way.
Have a great week ahead and thanks for popping by xxx
