Hi and welcome! Congratulations on all your hard work and weight loss success. I'm sorry about the surgery and the long recovery. I can understand how hard it is to keep the weight off. I've lost 60 lbs. twice, but I gained back all of it both times. Kudos to you for you for coming here to get back on track now. You've done so well to quit smoking - that's

Hi and welcome aboard! I've had back surgeries myself and know how limited recovery was! A definite wall-climbing activity. That's when I started walking myself. Now I'm looking for hiking trails - I'm getting a little bored with just walking the neighborhood. We'll always be here to cheer you on.
God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.
I recently had back surgery fto correct my sciatica and quit smoking about 5months ago. It was a 12week recovery for my back and Im currently still doing some PT to help strengthen my core abit.....
