I had my total hip replacement surgery on March 7th. One of the questions I asked the surgeon was how the titanium hip would compare in weight to the bone and whatnot that she was going to remove.She's a skinny thing and doesn't understand the significance a Weight Watcher attaches to a tenth of a pound. What she said was a vague, "It shouldn't make that much difference." I would have pressed to have her weigh everything, but she didn't seem really amenable to such a suggestion.So after the surgery, it took a while before I could even stand on the scale, let alone confronting what the number was on it.So here I am, several weeks out, having been doing physical therapy to rebuild muscle that had atrophied in the two years I was using the cane, and I am finally ready to return to a weight loss regimen. I can't yet go to meetings, but I am following the Weight Watchers program starting this week.I now weigh 219.8 pounds, which is meaningless compared to previous weights, so it's my new baseline. I seem to be the same or smaller than I was pre-surgery, judging by the way my face looks and the way my clothes fit.I'm not going to post my menus here because I usually post from my phone in small bursts and I'd end up wallpapering the place, so I'm doing that on my own board if anyone's interested.MOI
