I was going to celebrate my one year Get-Less-Fat Anniversary yesterday but I thought it was more important to share what was going on with me. It’s certainly not every weekend I spend in the hospital with a dozen hands up my vag. I mean, usually that happens in the privacy of my own home. Not really.

I did still restart this whole thing and did weigh in but given that I was such a swollen mess, the weigh in was far from accurate. I literally gained a pants size over night due to swelling. It’s going to be about two weeks before I’m really better but the pain will start to go away sooner than that.

With the swelling I weighed in at 255.2lbs. I’m not too fussed about it, though, because I know what to do to get it back off… and keep going. It’s really a matter of getting back to basics.

Yesterday that involved eating only whole foods (except for cottage cheese because it helped my stomach with the meds), getting enough liquids mostly in the form of herbal tea, and letting myself rest when I needed it.

I’m going to try to run once this week, twice next week, and three times the week after that. I’ll build myself back slowly. I’m waiting a week to start strength training again for no better reason than I feel really weak right now. I don’t want to do it because I don’t want to discourage myself at the outset.

So I’ve got the plan and the start of the execution in place. Things are already getting better.

You know what’s really great about this whole thing, though? I get to be totally high at work. Every one knows I’m high and it’s perfectly permissible. Have I ever told you all how much I love Vicodin? Well, I do.

I’m not going to lie; work is much more fun when you’re floating along.

Here’s to another year of getting less fat!
