Just a quick post to try to keep things going. I had a decent weekend -- better than I've had in a while. I didn't feel so down and was mildly productive, instead of sitting in front of the TV all weekend.
I have continued my efforts with eating only when my stomach is hungry and that is going pretty well. I eat what I want to when I do eat, but I have been good about stopping when I was satisfied.
It would be nice if my weight would begin to respond, and it may a little, but I know I will have to do more than this to make much progress. My back is hurting me and I am quite sure part of it is from the gained weight. But I feel better for the progress that has been made the last few days. It's nice to be feeling a little better.
When I say my back hurts, it is just a backache. None of the really bad radiating pain I was having before surgery. I know getting my weight down would help. It also helps to keep moving a bit instead of sitting too much. Baby steps, but at least I am taking some.
Have a great week everyone!
