Hip Surgery scheduled

Friday, June 15, 2012

I am heading out of town for 10 days to visit family and go to Legoland with my 8 year old grandson. When I get back I will be having surgery on my hip. I will be on crutches and the recovery period is going to take some time.

This will put a dent into my exercise schedule, so hopefully I will not gain weight, I will need to make sure that I watch my food intake.

I have been on a plateau for months, and am finally losing again, and now surgery will slow me down.

It will be interesting to see how this impacts my weight for the short term, but I hope that this surgery will fix my hip which will help in the long term.

    Good luck with your surgery. You will be doing great with your positive attitude and I think you will keep your weight in check til you recover from surgery. Just stick with your healthy vegetables and drink plenty of water.

    Have a great week !!

    Sorry to hear you're going to have surgery, but I hope it does fix the problem you're having. I'm sure it will be a challenge to be extra careful with your eating and not be able to exercise, but I know you'll be successful! You have the right mindset! Hope the surgery goes smoothly and the recovery fast!
