Day 8 is GREAT!!!!

Tuesday, April 05, 2011

I lost 4 lbs!! Waahoo!! I heard that after a hysterectomy the weight gain was inevitable. I am happy to say NOT FOR ME!!!!! I've been running, cycling, strength training, counting calories, and celebrating my successes. Yesterday I ran a whole mile...... which may not seem like much to some but prior to my surgery which was 8 weeks ago I could run a 5k in just over 30 minutes. I am on my way back. I have 37 lbs left to lose before I reach my goal and I am so excited!!!! I am proud of myself and want to encourage others to not think about it..... just do it. Once you get into a routine the rest is gravy.
