I got on the scales twice since my hysterectomy.  Gosh I seriously (not really) thought my uterus weighed 50 lbs and I’d wake up from surgery many lbs lighter.  LOL that didn’t happen!  I went to the gym twice since surgery so I could take some nice easy walks on the treadmill.  While I was there I couldn’t help but jump on their scales.  I hadn’t gained any weight, but no weight loss either 🙁  Disappointing.  I took a step back though and reminded myself that my body was still healing and obviously my metabolism is working pretty slowly.  At this point I’m not putting any pressure on myself.  Once I heal I can refocus.

Now onto my first day back at work.  I was off for two weeks so I was nervous returning.  Can you believe that morning I woke up and realized I had NOT put out any clothes to wear!  I didn’t even know what fit anymore (keep in mind pre surgery I was gaining lots of weight for no reason so each day was roller coaster ride).  You can imagine my delight when I put on my jeans and they fit!  Not only did they fit but that insane bloat WAS GONE!  Before no matter how hard I tried I had at least a small pooch of fat rumbling over the waist band.  Now don’t get me wrong, I still have a large belly but my jeans fit and I now have wiggle room!

I guess this is proof positive that even if the scale isn’t moving you can still be losing inches!  It was so nice to sit at work and not be uncomfortable.  Before I had surgery and when I was first diagnosed with fibroids I would sit at my desk and suddenly my pants would become tight beyond reason!  One of the bad side effects from the condition.  It was to the point I was going to request a doctor’s slip to wear stretch pants to work…for medical reasons!
