Good news!

Hello everyone I am back and feeling great!

The Cardiac Cath went well I don't have any blockage and my Doctor as well as I am pretty happy about that! It was not a great experience (I have to be home for 2 days due to the incision) but I am glad it is over and the outcome was great. Thank you to all of you for your kindness and keeping me in you thoughts I really appreciate it.

But some bad news I am not aloud to work out for 2 weeks so I am afraid I will regain all of the weight I have lost in the last few months so I am trying to be really good but when I am bored (like I am now) I want to eat everything I can. So that will be something I have to focus on until I can go back to the gym. I am aloud to walk which starts on Friday so I will just have to work really hard to keep my mind clear and focus on what I can and cannot do.

Remember don't let your body down listen when it speaks to you and know that stress can derail you from your goal (it is something I have to work on).

I'm happy that it went so well for you! I think the fact that you are worried about regaining the weight means that you will be aware of what you are eating and protect your weight loss. You can get through this challenge just fine!

Great news that you are OK, it will be much easier, boredom-wise when you are able to walk.

I am happy to hear that you are ok. I have to have a hernia repaired but that would mean that I can't exercise for 6 weeks so I am putting it off until I lose maybe another 40 lbs. My hernia is painful but I have some medicine left when it really starts to hurt. Take care.

Glad to hear you are doing ok! Try to be creative about distracting yourself so that you don't give in to boredom eating. Read, listen to a book on tape, knit, update your photo album, anything to keep your hands busy. Sending positive thoughts and prayers your way!

First of all... GREAT about the news! But, find you a book or something to read, or do, like a cross word puzzle or something! I will be dealing with the same thing in july when I have my tubes reversed, so I understand the pain. hang in there woman, you'll be as new as can be before long!
Much love,
