  1. Had a nice weekend with the family, but didn't get much accomplished. And on top of that I managed to gain a pound and a half over the weekend. Boo. I know that it is most likely water weight as AF is imminent, but it's still frustrating. Also wondering if the Gatorade Zero I had yesterday might be a contributing factor. 

    Today is a new day, and I've already walked 3km. Going to shoot for 3 more mini walks today. Need to up my activity. I've set a target of being at 237lb (or lower) on surgery day. That's the lowest I've been in the last 20 years.  

    And I'm going to take something for this wretched constipation.

      You are doing great.

      at my pre-op appt last week we have been encouraged to get on the scale weekly, not more often unless recommend so for other conditions. So don’t worry too much about the weekend. You are definitely on the right track. Gatorade has sodium.

      Thanks! I'm a scale addict. It's something I've been working on, unsuccessfully I'm afraid. ;) I managed to do 3 mini walking workouts yesterday... I wanted 4, but it's still more than I did the day before. And I have another bottle of the Gatorade Zero in the fridge, but I think maybe I'll avoid drinking the whole bottle at one shot.

      On a different note, interested you are referring to lb not kg being that you live in AB. I’m Canadian Citizen myself. My husband was born and raised in Alberta and all his family is there. We moved to North Carolina in 2010 with his job.
