Today I kept up with my little girls at the park. I even played myself on the slides and swings. I'm not near my goal weight but beautiful blessings are coming each step closer.

I stay on the elliptical longer than any of the skinny young things ???? I'm sweating and huffing and puffing but if it's a race I win. ( oh and in my head it is a race)

Hi.

Hope your Memorial Day went well.

My physical progress was that I actually went down a slide with my grand-daughter last week. First time in 32 years. I was never so excited and my daughter actually put it on her phone and shared on her Facebook.< /p>

My love for my heart is I can actually go outside and work on a flower garden and do yard work without getting sick in the sun. I even sat on the chairs that I re-did yesterday without a worry of getting stuck.

This was a great question. :)

My physical NSVs are amazing -- things like walking anywhere I want to go in the city and not being afraid of knee pain and exhaustion and being unable to get back to where I started.

Like today -- I mowed the front lawn, the side lawn, the garage lawn, picked up tons of downed timber on our property (storms around here), trimmed rose bushes, weeded flower beds -- and wasn't the least bit tired! Before WLS, I hadn't worked that hard that easily in years!

Like this weekend -- we went to hubby's high school reunion (400 miles away), and I kept up all weekend, stood at the cocktail party for an hour without sitting down (!!!), and did half the driving to the event and back. That sounds like nothing now, right? Well, as we all know when we were obese we could no more do that simple trip than a man in the moon, right? We'd have stayed home, right? And maybe hubby would have stayed home, too, right? (Just look at hubby's NSVs about my WLS, eh?)

All the things we gradually removed from our lives we're now putting back into our lives. Hubby and I are both so happy about this surgery's physical, emotional, recreational and health benefits!

I'm so glad I'm not the only one that has this stuff in my head at the gym. Had to laugh. But it motivates me so I'm open to it.

you are so right about putting these things back in our lives. For me its been the greatest gift in this process.

The first time I ran a mile.

Then the first time I ran 2 miles.

Then last week I ran almost 3 miles :)

I am someone who HATED exercise. LOATHED it. In the past I had lost weight doing only some swimming and a little bit of walking. Each time I run, it just proves to me that if you put your mind to it, you really can accomplish anything.

I'm hoping to run a 5K by my 1 year surgiversary.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
