Walking Buddy Desperatly Wanted!!!

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Ok so here's the deal. RNY bypass surgery is showing results but now the skin hangs! I hate exercising alone and need a buddy to walk with..to keep me motivated to get up and MOVE!
Any takers in the N/W Florida area? Age or gender doesn't matter so long as you want to walk with me. Bring the kids, bring the dog..or cat..but lets get together a couple days/evenings a week and move!

    I heard that burn hospitals would do the surgery for free as long as the person donates the excess skin. And the walking would be great if I could find a buddy in my area but so far...nothing! ::Sighs::

    Your age and genetics weigh heavily on whether the flesh will tighten. So don't get too discouraged if not all the "slack" takes up. Those who can afford, sometimes have cosmetic surgery after their weight is stable for about a year, and the rest of us wear special under-garments (like heavy-duty Spanx) . Ask your bariatric nurse for a referral. And that walking buddy is super , no matter what! Good luck! emoticon
