  3. This morning I am on my way to Minneapolis. I am having a 3 level cervical spinal fusion tomorrow morning, I am hoping it will stabilize my spine and takeaway some of this neck, shoulder and arm pain. I hope all goes well!

  4. What an exciting milestone for me! I am no longer obese on the BMI chart. As of this morning, I have hit the overweight section of the chart. I cannot wait until I get into the healthy portion. The last time I was not considered obese or morbidly obese was when I was 24 years old. That is over half my life! Woot woot!

  7. Ugh! I just got scheduled for a 3 level cervical spine fusion surgery for June 3rd. Having had spinal fusion before I am very nervous. That kind of surgery can be very painful. Hopefully it will solve my neck and shoulder issues.

  10. Woot woot! Got my new apple watch in the mail and had to run do a one hour work out to test the exercise features! Love it!

    1. Swampdoggie

      Swampdoggie

      Well now that sounds like fun. You go Djmohr!

      Im hesstant to buy one. Would love to hear feedback after you've played with it for a minute.

      I absolutely love the fitness features on this watch. Took me a day to get it figured out but I love it. I wish you did not have to have your iPhone on your person for the steps program to function and I wish the battery life was a bit longer. It is way more accurate than my Fitbit and exercise equipment because it considers your actual heart rate and resting calories as well. I love it!

  11. Well, I have done cardio 5 days in a row now. Down 2lbs this week and feeling pretty darn proud of myself. Trying to build that exercise habit and make it consistent everyday is not easy! Before I was exercising 3 times per week and I seemed to slow way down on weight loss.

      Awesome. Just plain awesome.

  14. Yeah! My move is over and I was able to get back on my elliptical and treadmill today! I feel great!

      I just bought a recumbant bike / elliptical hybrid a couple of weeks ago, and I love it. It is parked right in front of the TV. If I am watching TV in that room, I must be on my bike.

      My elliptical is a recumbent bike and I love it. Much easier on my joints but I get a great work out. Mine also has muscle endurance so you can add to your work out.

  15. I am off to Hawaii on Friday 5 sizes smaller than I was last August when I took my last cruise! Woot woot!

    1. Djmohr

      That's awesome! I ended up giving up a cruise so I could have my surgery. I have been before and I will go again. No biggie. It was to the Bahama's for a few days.
