I'll just hang out here for a while
I don't have 400 posts. But I do have 190.5 pounds on my 5 foot 8.5" body, as of my weigh-in this morning.
I want to get into the 170s. I know I should go lower, but I would be happy with the 170s for now.
The only exercise I can do right now is walking, because I had a hysterectomy almost 3 weeks ago. I went for 45 minutes on Wednesday. No problem, no pain. Yesterday I headed out for a walk (snow on the ground), and promptly twisted my knee and ended up with a blister on my heel. WTF??
I'll try again today. I like walking, but I know that I'll need to get some serious cardio in as well once the doctor clears me.
My biggest struggle is eating. Large portions, the wrong types of food, etc. I've been trying to be careful while home these past few weeks, but the Little Debbie nutty bars are screaming at me from the kitchen and I want to devour 2 or 3 of them. Sigh.
I already am a good water drinker, probably a gallon/day, but I might try to increase that a bit so I feel full. Oh, and I started taking some calcium/vitamin D and a multivitamin, so I'm hoping that gives me more energy.
Does anyone have any good tricks or suggestions? How ofen do you guys weigh yourselves? What are your goals?
