I'm Arlene. I joined this website in early 2008, after recovering from emergency surgery for diverticulitus and perforated colon, I was very sick. I lost 30 lbs, during this illness and surgery. I was dertermined to keep it off. Sooo I joined a gym and sparkpeople. I was on my way to a healthier lifestyle, working out and watching what I ate. Sometime in August, I realized even though I was losing weight, my pants were getting tighter!?! I started measuring my waist and found the more I worked ...

I was dertermined to keep it off. Sooo I joined a gym and sparkpeople. I was on my way to a healthier lifestyle, working out and watching what I ate. Sometime in August, I realized even though I was losing weight, my pants were getting tighter!?! I started measuring my waist and found the more I worked out the bigger my waist got! I went back to doc and found that I had two incesional hernia's (doc called them alien babies) from the prior surgeries and had to have them repaired. I had repair on December 17, 2008 and I'm feeling good (lost another 7 pounds in hospital) but, my doc has restricted my workouts. For the next six months I can only walk and do mild yoga. No strength training, NO AB work at all! Nothing strenous! So I have lost about 40lbs in the last two years and above all want to keep it off!! I would like to lose about 10 to 20 more pounds and I'm really trying hard.

Thanks for the well wishes on my page. Wow; I haven't been this sick in years. BUT! I AM getting better. I'm drinking lots of fluids (no beer though) :)

I hope you're having a great day!

Thanks for the comment on my blog - you crack me up! I'd love to have a beer with you...but then we'd have to work it off!

Hey, can I borrow that "Patience" sign in your picture? I could sure use some!

Have a great week!!
