This was a weird week. I had surgery on Thursday so I don’t know how accurate my results will be. On Wednesday, I had to do a cleanse to prep for Thursday. It suuuuuuucked, but I lost 4 pounds! During the laparoscopic surgery they pump gas into your abdomen. I’m not kidding – I got home and weighed 5 pounds more than when I went into surgery. I was not expecting that and honestly looked like I was pregnant. My belly was round and HARD. The gas has been the worst part of the recovery. This bloat is ridiculous. I think it can take up to a week to fully go away, so I think next Monday should have more accurate results. The bad thing is that I can’t work out for another week and a half. At least I’m hoping to be able to after my 2 week checkup. I have a 5k to prep for!
