Glad to see you are still on SP. I am back again. This time I am determined to reach my goal. I had gastric sleeve surgery in August and have lost 56 lbs. after reaching an all time high of 309 lbs. Feeling much better now and looking forward to getting stronger and leaner.
Hope you are doing well. Stop by my page and say hi. I posted a new blog about my surgery. It has really changed how I deal with food. Starting to exercise this week after a long time. Will have to take it slow. The hardest part is getting started because I am afraid of not being able to do it. Must get past the mental block. I know I have more energy so I should be fine.
I would like to do a 5k in the Spring. That is one of my goals. My weight loss goal for December is 10-12 lbs.
Hey, I bet those people being interviewed at the border have an equal amount of knowledge about America, as they do about Canada. Which is embarrassing!
Married life is good. :) Trying to get our condo set up the way we want it. I am not much of a decorator, and lack the $ to pay a professional haha. I am optimistic that we will be able to do lots of snowshoeing this winter. We did that a lot our first year of dating, but then had to stop because of my foot pain. But it's now at the point where I can run and hike relatively pain free.
How are your feet these days? I know it's been a while since the surgery, so I'm assuming you're fully recovered by now? Have a great weekend!
Thanks for the goodie. I answered the way that I did because what's the use of responding unless it is with honesty? What I wrote is hard to hear, but it is even harder to acknowledge and live with daily. I am a realist. Unless I win the lottery (or some other major cash prize) I will never be able to have the kind of surgery that will give me the relief I want. It's very difficult to do so many things when your back can "go out" and render your legs useless at any given time. For someone that spent years participating in running, football, soccer, softball, basketball, hiking, etc. it's terribly disheartening when you can't even walk / shop at Costco without your back starting to cramp up and feeling the burning from your sciatic nerves and hoping that it stays that way until you can at least get home!
I feel like life is very bleak and almost every day I wake up hoping that some sort of "Earth Abides" or "The Walking Dead" type of situation has arisen, because at least then I wouldn't have to worry about how I was going to pay my bills and other matters such as that.
This all sounds very dark and foreboding so I suppose I should also mention that I am staunchly anti-suicide! Hell, I barely ever drink and rarely ever take prescription medication. So don't worry or be concerned about me, I'm sure I am doomed to live a long, painful and disheartening life! 40 days ago
