Well, it has been a little over 10 weeks since surgery, I think I am fully recovered, My scars are still red but that will take time I know. Weighing in at 159lbs +/- a few depending on the day (water,) 60 min of cardio/day some power walking, some running, I can run the 5k in 40 min no problem and with only one bra yehhhhhh! I am leaving the weight training until after xmas, still some discomfort with any lifting over my head
I am not physically measuring my food anymore, and just a mental calculation of calories, I want to be less obsessive about it and maintain where I am, so far so good, the real test of course will be xmas. But if I can pull it off without having a major weight gain, then I know I have truly changed my lifestyle. I am debating on tailoring the old or buying new, because everything I own hangs off me, and I hate to give away more clothes.
The best part of this journey I am on is that I truly feel 20 yrs younger, not that I think I look 20yrs younger, but that I haven't aged 20 years if that makes sense.
I do believe you can reinvent yourself, change stuff you don't like, keep what you love, and share yourself harmoniously with those you care about.
Just like that grocery list, if you always buy the same items everytime, you never change what you make, you have all the POWER :)
I enjoy coming here to see how everyone is doing, it keeps the inspiration fire burning..... keeps the commitment real, it has changed my whole household, a bennifit for my entire family ......GO SPARKPEOPLE
