Default Ouch!

After having emergency surgery on 4/10 (they removed a gall stone the size of a golf ball ) I gained 10# . Thankfully it was off the following week. I'm still recovering from the surgery, (it was done laproscopically (sp?), but because the stone was so big they actually had to make an additional incision that was about an inch long instead of going truough the belly button the way they usually would.), but have managed to loose everything I gained plus some. I still won't be able to work out the way I want to for at least another 3-4 weeks, but plan to get back into the gym at least to start cardio again by the beginning of next week.

This is the first time I've been under 200# since I was about 14! I've had to get rid of almost all of the clothes that were in my closet, and purchase a whole new wardrobe over the past month or so... There is someone at my church that has inherited almost all of it, and she's thrilled. I'm trying to figure out how to finance my new shopping addiction as I continue to shrink and need new clothes at an increasingly rappid rate. (Not that I'm complaining abut downsizing my body by any means!) I must give cudos to whoever it was that first came up with the idea of second hand/thrift stores...they've been a life saver for many of us on this site .

I hope everyone is doing well on their journey to better health.

Just because no one sees it, doesn't mean it doesn't count
