Anticipation and the Roller Coaster Ride
Tuesday, April 17, 2018
Anticipation of surgery on Friday is taking its toll on my eating these past 3 days! I have managed to keep exercising, but have been craving and eating all the worst possible foods, mostly carbs like bread, cookies, and cake...So here I go.... down five pounds on Saturday and up those five pounds today. Due to my own poor choices, I have not lost an ounce in two weeks. I am thankful that I have not gained any weight though. I appreciate that it could have been worse, and I could have gained weight over two weeks!
My angst over not being able to exercise for two weeks after surgery has stressed me out along with anxiety over the surgery outcomes to the point of making poor eating choices. I need to get a grip on all of this, and gain a more healthy perspective. In the medical community, removal of the salivary gland is not a major issue and is an outpatient procedure. In addition, I am fortunate to be in good overall health, so I need to adjust my attitude. It will all be fine, and I need to continue to focus on my goals.
