I had an attempt a few weeks ago. It was too soon and I got light headed. So I stuck to walking the dog. Today felt good though.

When are you booked in?

26th. Starting my pre op diet today. Looking forward to it. They've got me set up for 4 appointments in the 2 weeks, so hopefully it'll keep me busy. And my dogs have already expressed how excited they are that all I'll be doing is walking, all 3 of them.

Good luck with the pre op. I'm sure you'll be fine. Pretty easy to be super strict for 2 weeks.

I started c25k recently and so far I'm pretty motivated with it. I've actually exercised every day since starting. Tonight will l be day 1 of week 3 for me. I've pushed a little and did an extra run cycle almost every night so far. I run on the treadmill so I run at 1.5-2% incline to try and compensate for the street vs. treadmill difference.

I'm not a runner and my favorite saying has always been "if you see me running, call the cops cause someone has a gun", so I'm surprised I'm enjoying it so far. I think it's hit some weird competitive thing in me. I'd been totally stalled in exercise and weight loss since late summer and finally decided I needed to do something to try and tighten up my belly pooch. Lets see if the running helps. Tightening up is definitely my goal with the running.

Nothing loses weight and tightens things up like running. If your running 5k 3 or 4 times a week I think you'll smash thru the stall.

I'll let you know how it goes with week 3. running 1.5 minutes ok... running 3 minutes... not so sure about that... :/ if I can tack on the extra 1.5 at the end before warming down, I'll feel accomplished for sure.

I did that program years ago, with moderate success. I'd join you on it again if I didn't just get a shiny new pair of crutches today :D

Hey mr. dom man :) ive been doing this for a few months now. I really enjoy it. if doing it on the treadmill or outside starts to hurt your feet or knees to much you can hop on the elliptical there a speed and time tracker on there and its gentle on the joints. Have FUN!!

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
