My attitude this month is Onward and Forward!
I went to see family Doc and I am on the mend...
THANK YOU so much for your prayers
I cleaned my house for the first time yesterday since surgery, I did not do anything I did not feel I could do, like vacuum.
I started my walking program - and walked for 12 minutes my first day. I did not quite reach 1/2 mile, which is my first goal, but slow slow slow is how I have to go.
I am trying to get back on a regular bed time and failing miserably. The first 4-6 weeks after surgery were horrible with getting up and down in pain and discomfort, I got off my schedule. Trying to go to sleep for hours does not cut it. On nights before school, Doc gave me sleeping pills, I need my rest. I will NOT take them daily. I have COMMIT myself to the same bed time every night to establish my bed time. It may take a week or two but it will fall back into place.
I am 7 weeks post-op. In three weeks I return for my other procedure. I lost 6 pounds before surgery and I have lost 10 pounds since the surgery. My goal is to lose another 4 pounds before the next surgery, March 3.
So Onward and Forward! Off I go!
