Summer, your goal is to exercise out of your bed .I'm sure with determination and guidance you will. How strange life is. I can go to the gym anytime I want but I just can't motivate myself to do so. You on the other hand given the opportunity will probably be a gym rat.

Don't know if you had your surgery yet but, I wish you the best and I'm sure we will read positive posts from you in the future.

I am so proud of you for beginning this journey!

Make daily goals, and increase as you can. Make your daily goals specific ie: after Breakfast every day I will do ________ 10 times, Or whatever makes sense in your day. If you do small things, multiple times a day it adds up.

Maybe 10 mins 3X/day of exercise.

Also, a few visits with a physical therapist to show you things you can do now at home is very helpful. My insurance paid for PT for me, since I have a ton of physical issues.

Best of luck!!

I was just at an event featuring success stories. and someone there once could only walk with a walker and that night she carried her walker onto the stage. It can be done and it will take time just do what your doctors and nutritionists tell you

And that's an idea make a short-term goal of exercising to lift your Walker up and down. Then a couple months you can throw your Walker into a dumpster
