OK so after my freak out I grabbed the tape measure. I didn't measure before my surgery like an idiot... but I did measure at 3 weeks out. So I measured again Wednesday which was 5 weeks, 2 days out. I was down 12 inches from week 3. I felt much better after seeing that.
I stuck to my plan and yesterday drowned myself in water and was down 2 lbs. this a.m!! :D Yeehaw! :)
So I'm at 29 lbs. lost. I did stop losing on the scale for 6 days but I was losing inches. Hallelujah.
I wish I wasn't such a scale whore, but I don't think that is going to change any time soon. Next time I'll just grab the tape measure before I let myself flip out all day.
Thanks for your comments too everyone. :D
