exercise OMG!

Saturday, January 19, 2013

I went to a RNY support meeting today come to find out it was a meeting to help you start your exercise program. An that's what they had use doing EXERCISING!!.. I knew it was time for me to start, but I didn't know how much work it I got through it well, but when I got home I took a shower and then a nap, when I woke up I was in so much pain, I couldn't even move my fingers or toe' I had to take a few tylenol before I could get up. I'm not going to let it discourage me though.

    No pain No gain...unfortunately...remember the surgery is just a tool. You must do ALL the work to get results. Glad you will stick with it. Go girl!

    Right now, I'm taking Aleve and Advil for really, really bad pain in my upper inner thigh, like where the joint is. I suspect it's the groin muscles complaining at all of the walking I've been doing.

I don't push myself hard. I'll be fifty in March and I'm obese and I'm beginning to feel some ... restrictions. I don't think they're limitations; I think as I become fitter, and weight comes off, the restrictions will ease and I will regain more range-of-motion and can thus do more.

I do love the wow-I- can-actually-feel-muscles-being-use
d feeling I get from excercising, but it won't do me any good if I hurt myself and can't exercise at all.

Keep going. Add a little more to yesterday's success -- small steps will still get you where you're going.

Another thing to keep in mind, I think, about small steps: Like everyone, I love, love, love, those great honking drops in weight on the scale, but I know from experience that those drops slow down. If I solidly build my new habits, I can lean on them when things slow down and I feel like nothing I'm doing is right.

You've got a great start. Be proud of who you are -- there's no one like you -- and what you've accomplished.
