Back after surgery

Tuesday, December 27, 2011

I got something done that I've been needing for a LONG time - a breast reduction. Seriously! The doctor ended up removing 4 lbs from each side. I DON'T recommend this as a weight loss solution, but it is making a HUGE difference in my neck, upper back and self-esteem.

Doctor said I couldn't exercise for 6 weeks post-surgery. Today is my first day back to exercising. It felt good to get moving again. Of course, I couldn't do everything with my arms that the DVD called for, but just walking and moving felt great.

The surgery did drop 8 lbs off my weight after most of the pot-op swelling went down. Of course, the holiday season and not being able to exercise made some of it come back, but my goal is to be under 200 by March of this year.

I'm back to tracking my food, exercising and well on my way! Happy New Year, everyone!
