Comments and weightloss.....?


Enjoying life!

As some of you know I have just had a short stay at the pleasure of our fabulous <koff> NHS! :sigh:

This morning I was chatting to my Mum during my "are you ok today" check and she said "you looked like a skelton with two dark gussets for eye sockets laying there" This comment has struck a chord with me as it is not something I ever imagined I would be referred to as. Not that I wanted to but it somehow made me take a look at myself.

I stood looking in the mirror this morning and I was rather surprised what a difference just a few lb can make when you are already slim. Unlike when you are big and lose a few lb, it seems to make no difference.

My boss came into hospital to see me last Sunday and when I walked in the room she said "oh my god you've lost more weight and look completely drugged up" - it had only been a week since she saw me and drugged up? lol yeah that would be the morphine!

I know I have lost more weight but it was not in any way through trying as to be honest I didn't want to lose anymore.

I was not unhappy that I could not get to LL last week or this as I felt the weigh in would either register a gain due to fluid retention or a loss due to being so unwell for several days. So I figured that when I go along to the drop in next week (22nd) it will have settled.

I decided after much thought to weigh myself and record my weightloss this morning as I do not want to "fear" losses or gains but learn to embrace them for what they are and recognise why they happened whichever way they go.

Hmm just some thoughts.

Aw no Kat, sorry to hear you've been in hospital. Been away and didn't realise! Excellent post. Hope you're better :)
