You can't emphasize that walking thing enough. First to recover from the surgery and get all the plumbing flowing again. After that you can start on more vigorous moving, but you have to keep moving as much as you can.
Everyone is doing so well. Ain't it cool!
This was the best thing I ever did.

:: SNAPS TO YOU ALL! ::

I know, I don't look back I only look forward now.

Isn't it great to be alive?

Keep up the great work and remember..YOU ARE AMAZING!

Take each day one step at a time.

When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile.

Let your life mean something. Become an inspiration to others so that they may try to do more and to become more than they are today.

Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice
at the end of the day saying,
"I will try again tomorrow."

emoticon I totally agree with LAC569!! As soon as you can get out of bed start walking, stay out of that bed as much as possible. Walk, walk, walk!! Like LAC569, I have had 19 surgeries and walking is the key to any recovery!! I am 6 weeks out and have lost 40 lbs already. I feel so much better!! You will be so glad you did this!!

So being down 8 pounds on post op day 4 is not a bad thing? Thank God. I knew the weight would come off but not this fast. Wow 25 pounds lost in a week. That is amazing
