Lost 6 pounds in 6 weeks!

Monday, August 06, 2012

It has been 6 weeks since my hip surgery, I am still on crutches with the last two weeks where I can put some weight on my right side, up to 50%, which means I can stand but not walk. It doesn't sound like much, but helps quite a bit.

I have been doing my physical therapy exercises which include an exercise bike, and have also been doing upper body strength training.

I have been especially diligent on my calories, tracking everything staying in range including increasing my protein, averaging around 90+ grams per day.

My hip feels good, I feel good, and ....

drum roll please......

I have lost 6 pounds in 6 weeks!

    YAY YOU!
6 lbs loss- that's so emoticon !
Especially since you couldn't walk- you must have been very strict with your calorie intake!
Continued SUCCESS!
