  1. If it doesn't hurt, you're not doing it right...right? Thank you so much for the support, it means everything to me!!!
  2. Ugh...I wish I had words of wisdom for you on this subject. My brain hasn't even come close to thinking about this yet. I've lost muscle mass from being immobile for so long, and now there's more to look forward to. It sounds like you're out there killing it though!! Im thoroughly impressed with everything you're accomplishing I'm sorry you're dealing with some weakness (((hugs))). It hardly seems fair to go through all of this, only to have to worry about losing our muscle mass!
  3. Thank you, BurgundyBoy!! It'd take a lot of prompting to get my adult kids out painting "Trishes" in my driveway, lol, but I'd bet money I could get my hubby to do it! It feels good knowing that I did it, but I'm in too much pain to savor the win right now. Don't get me wrong, I'm expecting this to hurt quite a bit for a while. But I am happy!
  4. You are just the most motivational person I know!! Thank you!! And btw...I LOVE Seinfeld! I needed to be reminded that I'm actually going from being about 85% wheelchair bound to actually getting outside and walking! I feel the love
  5. Amen!! ❤️
  6. Omg, you're so right!! I couldn't even put my own socks on before now, let alone tie my shoes! thanks for the reminder.
  7. Thanks @Gretta, @Jen581791, and @Cheesehead I feel a little silly celebrating such a little thing...but ya gotta start somewhere, right?
  8. I walked the length of my driveway and back 3 times today Those of you who remember my first post about walking will understand I'm very envious of all of you that can walk, run or cycle much longer distances, but for me this is a victory. I needed to push my wheelchair for support, but I'm getting my joints (and my butt) moving...slowly but surely.
  9. Same here, but mine was removed in month after I was due to have my WLS last year. To be honest, I was terrified that I wouldn't be able to lose any weight after my thyroidectomy. Once I started my pre op diet, I saw that it wasn't going to be a problem. I'm taking Armour thyroid and that doesn't seem to be impeding my weight loss, thank God.
  10. Totally amazing transformation!! You're such an inspiration!! You look fantastic
  11. What?!? UGH!! I'm sorry Hang in there,'s going to happen!! ❤️
  12. Same carbonation ever again either But it's so worth giving it up to finally be dropping this weight! I was also told no caffeine as well, but thankfully that's not a problem for me.
  13. Lol...mine too haha
  14. That's so cool! I just tried it Thanks for the link.
  15. I was never a soda or coffee drinker. No soda (unless I was sick, I'd drink ginger ale) because I never really liked it, and no coffee because I hate the taste and can't drink caffeine. I was addicted to seltzer water though. No withdrawal symptoms, but giving up the carbonation, for me...I really miss it. I notice a lot of people on the forums do/used to drink a lot of soda. Just remind yourself how good it is for your body to get that out of your system!!! Good luck Try to find a healthy replacement for it. Maybe herbal tea, exercise, or some other activity you really enjoy!
