MT. RIBIDOUX HIKE YAYYYYY



Recommended Posts

OK my peeps I did another hike today. And went with a fit thin young 23 year old. It was difficult to keep up with her, but I did it huffing and puffing and sweating, but I DID IT.

A year ago I could barely walk up the stairs of own my home (so much pain in my knees). Walking the mall, or going various places they would sometimes lock on me and I would have to wait in place and try to adjust them back to walk :( ...5 months after surgery and 54 lbs. gone, NO PAIN IN MY KNEES after todays hike.

I am NOT at goal BUT I FEEL SO BLESSED and happy, words CAN NOT EXPRESS how grateful I am. I really believe THE BEST IS YET TO COME...OK I have to stop before I start crying...Thanks again for all your support and love.

P.s. I've attached pics from the hike and one pic taken 1 week before my sleeve. Also special thanks to you Leslie for the 411 on Mt. Rubidoux :)

Thanks Pam :)

The weight loss helps soooo much! Of course it doesn't repair the damage already done, but it totally takes the pressure off of the knees. 1 pound is 7 pounds of pressure on our poor knees. Believe me when I say my knees love my sleeve too.

That is such a great accomplishment! So glad to hear of the knee pain disappearing! You look fantastic.

BTW, you were so very pretty even in your before pics.

I had to look twice at your pictures to even recognize you. Huge difference all around. Congratulations on making the sleeve work!

      Work is still stressful and I'm on sick leave for this week because of acute laryngitis (corona tested negative twice). 😷
      I'm surprised that I still get reactions for posts sometimes, even though some of them are quite old now.
      Anyway, hoping people are ok!

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
      I would love followers and to follow more people throughout this journey because I’m pretty much alone I have a freak out at least once every two hours I know I did the right thing but sometimes I feel like I didn’t I also know this too shall pass and by this time next year it won’t be tears of sadness I’ll be having tears of joy so please follow me on my journey and I will do the same😍
      I would love to share some of the things that I have discovered after surgery that no one talks about
