I thought I'd update you all. You may remember me posting last week that I was stunned at my first post-op weigh in at SW and the result?
I weighed in again this morning. The nagging thought I'd had going through my mind all week has been proven. It turns out that last week I got a false report on the scales. :!: I can only put this down to the fact I had to lean on both crutches for balance. This week I had a friend stood nearby (just in case I toppled) and was lightly balancing on one elbow crutch. I am, in actual fact, 1lb under my target weight.
I spoke to the class leader about this and said I'd had this nagging thought all week that had I put more weight last week on my crutches than I'd realised. She agreed with me that this is likely to have been the case.
Thankfully this last week I didn't go mad; I hadn't re-set my target weight and I stayed on plan. So I am pleased to say that I am still within target range. I am happy with this as I am more than satisfied where my SW journey has taken me to.
So lesson learnt and a salutary warning for anyone else. If you are following a diet plan and weighing in post-op, leaning on walking aids and see a result you don't quite believe, ask for it to be re-done. If I see such a phenomenon again that's what I'll be doing!
Turn a negative into a positive!
