Urgh! 5 weeks since surgery and my belly is huge. Ok, it was’t exactly flat before, but I look like I’m smuggling a space hopper up my jumper.
Not sure if this is what the ‘Hystersisters’* call post op ‘swelly belly’ or if it’s the result of too much snacking on the goodies that visitors keep bringing round while being comparatively inactive. Actually, my friend told me a fab new German word today to describe the weight you gain from comfort eating - kummerspeck. Apparently it translates as “grief bacon”. Made me laugh, anyway.
Well, I guess I’ll try to keep eating mostly healthily and doing my daily walk and see what happens. Think I might pack away my jeans for a while and stick to stretchy yoga pants…
Keep smiling ladies! xxx
