Life After Bariatric Surgery

Saturday, July 13, 2013

Hi everyone. Just dropped by to let all know that my surgery went well. I'm 2 weeks post op and feeling great. Left hospital at 220 lbs and now down to 211. It will be a slow battle, but I didn't gain it overnight. I am still having to force myself to walk or's just not something I enjoy. Guess I have to beat that excuse.
Well, it's hot here in Florida, so today I am going to the pool to walk in it. It's harder, and I don't walk near as long, yet it's better than setting here on my can surfing. Wish I had a walking buddy.

    Good for you. The key to exercise is to find something that you enjoy. I hate to walk due to my 2 really bad knees, but I have a dog and believe it or not a new kitten that is a year old who loves to walk with us. Focusing on them keeps me not thinking about the walking and I enjoy it.

    You can do this, you will find something you like to do, and I hope someone you can do it with. That helps a lot.

    Keep up the good job so far.

    Congratulations on the weight loss, you must be feeling excited. Pity that I am too far away from you to be your walking buddy as I could do with one too.

    I like to walk in the pool also. We have a water treadmill where I go and I use that when I can. Glad you are doing well post-surgery. emoticon
