  • Yes, you NEED to recover.
  • Yes, it was like this after the tummy tuck. Actually it was worse, you just don’t remember.
  • Yes, you are and will be swollen and none of our clothes will fit for awhile. It is NOT FAT but it will be if you keep eating the way you do.
  • No, sucking down a calorie laden milkshake did’t make you feel better.
  • No, baking a cake (albeit ‘healthier’) and scoffing down 3 pieces didn’t make you feel better.
  • No, sneaking those 2 slices of cheese while making the toddlers lunch for tomorrow didn’t make you feel better and they DID count even though nobody saw it.

Just remember….

You will be able to workout soon. I know you miss running and lifting but you can start small again like taking a walk tomorrow.

Go back to basics. Start a fresh week tomorrow and journal. Count points like you used to. When in doubt find comfort in your ability to adapt, learn and grow even if it means going backwards for a bit. Do NOT find comfort in food.


P.S. You started the day off great, what went wrong?

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Oh my gosh! You read my mind. I had surgery 4 weeks ago and I have been through the same cycle. Swollen so feeling too fat, eating things I shouldn’t and not able to work out to the level I am used to. I know it will get back to “normal” soon but I want it now – before I pack on the weight! Baby steps!

    That was just what I needed. I am going to print that and hang it at my work desk :)

    You really are doing a great job ♥

    You can get through it! You’ve made it this far, right? I try to soothe myself with food too sometimes, even though I know it doesn’t work. It always helps to see it in writing. Keep on keepin’ on!

    stay in touch with all the good parts about your life and reaffirm your hard work with some positive self-talk and deep breathing. You’ll get through this too.
