Only 100 lbs to go!

Rate this Entry
I started my walking yesterday! 18 days post-op. I walked 2.2 miles for 45 minutes. It felt great! I have so much more energy and spring in my step minus the 35 lbs I have lost since starting this journey in December. I have lost 15 LBS since surgery. I know 100lbs is a lot but I know I can do it! I know that I can lose weight if I watch my diet and walk. I have done it before. The difference this time is that i have my sleeve for support! I do not even miss the junk I used to eat. I FEEL so good about myself right now...it is a circle. I eat right, I feel better physically, I want to walk and am comfortable walking, the weight comes off, I feel good about myself!! It is a recipe for success! I have hope for the first time since 2000! Before the surgery I was SO uncomfortable to walk. I couldn't go very fast and was so out of breath. The following day I would hurt all over and not walk again. I feel really good today! I will take it easy, though, and not kill myself with the walking. I tend to be "all or nothing". I am going to reward myself with something non-food for my 10 lb weight loses, just to make it fun! Eg: go to a movie, manicure, workout clothes, lipstick, body lotion, etc. I have never been one to really buy for myself so it will be fun!
I am glad I have you folks for support and undersranding. I have only shared my surgery with a few besides my husband and sons. 😊

    You can totally do this! Good luck and keep fighting the good fight. Exercise is a key component of weight loss. Keep walking and find other things you can do to keep it going.
