Ten weeks young
There hasn’t been much happening, I’m counting down for his surgery which is on Friday 23rd of July. I really want it to come and go, I can’t wait until his inguinal hernia is fixed because, for me, it looks very uncomfortable and scary, sometimes it looks big and sometimes it pops back in.
In the beginning the hernia was above his private parts but now it has traveled down his pouch. Benji doesn’t seem to care, he has no pain and he can do all his business with no problem. I hope the surgery goes well with no complications and that he recovers quick with no complications!
When it comes to me and my health… well… It’s been ten weeks since the delivery and I am only down 8 kilos. I’m sort of stuck. I lost 9 kilos but when we were on our two-day trip, I gained one kilo. Since then I haven’t been able to shake it off. I don’t know. For me it is not easy to lose the weight. I really thought at least 10 kilos would disappear the first two weeks. It did take nine months to gain everything. I will try my best to keep in mind it will take at least nine months to lose it. All I can do now is to eat less carbs, take a couple of walks every week and then I have everything else at home that I do. I can only do two more things and it is to remove all carbs and all sweets – forever.
I have taken my first vaccine shot; I have one more to take which will be in the end of August. I long to go back to the gym. But being a single mom I need a babysitter and my family lives 45 minutes away from me. I don’t feel it’s worth traveling 45 minutes x 2, three times a week for me just to go to the gym. However, I am on the lookout to move back closer to my family. I haven’t found anything yet and the ones I have found I didn’t get.
I just have to keep on looking!
