Hippy

I originally joined SparkPeople with the goal of getting a hip replacement. I lost 37 lbs & am sitting here with a shiny new hip. Of course, now I need some new goals.

I graduated high school at 175 lbs & I can now see that was a perfectly fine weight for me. My body image was worse then than it is now. At some point I figured I was a fat chick no matter what so it didn't really matter how fat. Now I see myself as a worthwhile person regardless of size. I'll be me and I'll be ...

I graduated high school at 175 lbs & I can now see that was a perfectly fine weight for me. My body image was worse then than it is now. At some point I figured I was a fat chick no matter what so it didn't really matter how fat. Now I see myself as a worthwhile person regardless of size. I'll be me and I'll be happy no matter what the scale says, although my health and fashion sense will both appreciate some more weight loss.

Anyway, I began this journey because it was the only way to get my hip fixed. A Spark friend points out that it is indeed a journey--not a trip or a vacation. I just got the OK to put weight on my new hip and need to set new goals and get moving again. I'm open to suggestions!

Fitness Minutes: 156

My Goals:
I'm recovering from hip replacement surgery (6/14/11), I'm looking forward to being able to do things I enjoy that involve being on my feet again!

For now my goals are to heal well and take off the weight I re-gained post-op.

My Program:
Mostly I work on portion control, eating more fruits & veggies, more protein & iron, less fat & sodium. No food is "forbidden" there's no need to go crazy!

Exercise is whatever my Physical Therapist says for the time being. I need to re-learn to walk!

Personal Information:
I'm a medical social worker and recently passed my licensure exam (whew!). My 3 kids are mostly raised, my 2nd husband is the love of my life, and we have 2 cute little dogs to keep us entertained.

Other Information:
I like to read history, sci fi, non-fiction. I sew and crochet & recently became interested in loom knitting.

It is just me spreading some Spark around to my Sparktacular friends. I am pretty sure I do not do this often enough.

It sounds like you have everything you need for your hip surgery. If you have a low toilet, you might want to consider a raised toilet seat. The only thing I would have done differently would be to do the post operative leg strengthening exercises before the surgery. Most of them are done sitting or laying down. Some with ankle weights.

I'll be thinking about you on 6/24. Keep in touch. Yvonne

I saw on Spark ON that you lost enough weight for your Dr. to schedule your hip replacement. You rock!!! I had my hip replaced 3 years ago. Email me if you want to talk about it with someone whose had the operation already. The hip pain, getting ready for the op and the anticipation is the worse part, so once you walk into the hospital, the worst is over.

When are your scheduled? Have a great Sunday.!! Yvonne
