I'm holding steady at down five pounds. Fine by me, I just want the number on the scale when I go to the doctors office on Friday to reflect that.... I've read in a bunch of places that people should be in the best shape possible for this kind of surgery, but on the other hand every surgeon I talked to said don't worry about about losing the last of the weight. They used to ask people to do that, but clearly, this is where my body is most comfortable.
I'm off to Ikea today to help create my outdoor space. We have a back porch that I would like to use, but right now, it's not very inviting. I am making peace with the fact that my life if about to grind to a halt. (Having a slightly harder time making peace with this surgery, more on that later.) So I want to make it so that I have a place I am comfortable hanging out, even when I can't get downstairs and out side. I have no idea how quickly I will heal and or recover. They say you should start walking pretty quick... around the block maybe? I wonder how this surgery will be with stairs.
So off I go. Each day up until the 4th is starting to take shape with specific tasks. Later on today I will tackle my closet.
