Very good what surgery did you do glad to hear you're going well hear many stories of complications but think some people just very unwell

I went with the Gastric Bypass. I actually had complications post-op, the day after my surgery I had bloody stool and lost a lot of blood and was severely dehydrated. I was given a blood transfusion and 2 IV bags at a time. This definitely brought down my faith a little but I just keep reminding myself why I did this.

I too have been walking (2.5mph max) on the treadmill for 1-2 hours daily.
Was sleeved on 2-6, and have been treadmill walking now for 3 days.
I’m thinking walking slow and steady like I am isn’t going to screw up my weight loss because I’m not getting into any kind of cardio zone at this slow and steady of a pace

I had sleeve on 7 jan and have been walking since I woke up from the anaesthetic. By the time I saw my surgeon 2 weeks post op, I was doing at least 7000 steps a day and now my average is 10000 a day.
If I feel uncomfortable, eaten too fast, drunk Water to early after a meal - I walk walk walk 😂👏🏽

Awesome job! Was sleeved on 2-6 and yesterday I finally hit 10k steps for a single day. My job is 100% on my feet and I’ve gotta be ready for those 10-12 hour shifts.
Besides, the Water goes down much easier with walking. I can set my treadmill for a 2.5 mile walk and drink an entire 20oz water in that hour
