I am just a loser!
Here I am 9 days after my op. and I am still useless. Yesterday, I tried to get a few things straight in the smallest bedroom so we can move things in there, while the cupboards are fitted in the back bedroom and today my arm has ached and ached. I am still not sleeping well and I can't keep to the SW food plan. I came out of hospital and after just four days I weighed 10 pounds more than when I went in!!. Was it the fish and chips and cream cakes, or the 5 course meals?? Nope because I hardly ate anything. On my op day I was out cold for 8 hours and the other days I either had soup or a piece of toast at meal times. But my legs are like tree trucks there are so swollen, why? It was my shoulder and arm that I had done not my legs. And to make things worse I just can't keep to the food plan. I am not eating huge amounts, and I don't drink alcohol or eat pounds of biscuits, just probably more than I need. It's the old adage I have to move more and eat less I know, so why can't I just do it. A few years ago I was in a stressful job and a bottle of wine each evening had become my 'out.' I decided I needed to change my life. Handed in my notice and stopped drinking, I didn't tail it off, just cold turkey stopped. How did I do that and why can't I follow a plan to reduce my weight? Anyone got any answers?
