It’s been two weeks and a day since my back surgery. I rushed my recovery along, starting back at work this past Tuesday. I was actually going to go in Monday, but I just couldn’t make it. Then Tuesday, I was able to work a couple of hours. A little more on Wed. Even longer on Thursday. Finally, a full day on Friday. I even made it in for a couple of hours today (Saturday) to makeup missed time. I’m amazed at the fast progression. Sure, I expected recovery to be quicker, but to go from two hours of work on Tuesday to eight hours on Friday is really fast.
I haven’t been walking as much as I should, but I’m gonna take care of this starting tomorrow.
I see the doc for another follow up on Monday, and I don’t foresee any issues. My incision is healing nicely.
My eating has been horrible throughout the surgery and recovery. I saw Dr. Dan about this today (can you believe he sees patients on Saturdays?), and I’m going to start seeing him regularly again. I’m also going to see Sonthe once a month and also see Donna Sibley, a dietitian at work, weekly because seeing someone at work will be the most convenient option for me.
All-in-all, I had a good food day today. I didn’t end the day on the best note, but it has still been better than the past couple of weeks. By the way, I weighed in this morning and I’m at 397 pounds. I really don’t want to go back into the 400′s.
Sure, I’m not pleased at all with this weight gain, but I’m optimistic about the future with my back getting better and my weight loss plans in place.
