NO MOTIVATION

I'M SUPER EXCITED BUT.....I HAVE NO MOTIVATION TO GET MY LARGE A** OFF THE COUCH. I AM IN A FUNK AND I KNOW THAT I NEED TO LOSE SOME WEIGHT AND EXCERCISE, I JUST AM NOT MOTIVATED. I GUESS IM DEPRESSED. I HATE LOOKING IN THE MIRROR AND I KNOW THIS WEIGHT ISNT GOIN TO COME OFF ON ITS OWN!!! I'M ONE MONTH AND 5 DAYS FROM MY SURGERY AND I KNOW THAT IF I WOULD JUST GET UP AND WALK I COULD TONE SO MUCH AND DROP A COUPLE POUNDS.....I FEEL STUCK!!!!

29 days!!!!!

Wow! The count down has begun! Pretty sure this is all I think about! My 7 year old is even counting down with me! Still some things to do...like buy a recliner but ready for the most part! Realized that I will be on my period for surgery;( was wondering if that effected anyone else?
I've been the same way. Not motivated to loose weight like alto of these girls. I figure he will suck it out. I go under Thurs next week

Sorry your having a bad day:( I know you much be excited about your drains coming out tomorrow. 5 days isn't to bad to be drain free!!

I hate new cg

I loved the binder. I feel like I'm suffocating and it hurts my incisions! Now I'm in a very bad mood and just want to throw a huge tantrum dammit. I have had headaches for two days, my husband is being an ass and I want a glass of wine! There...I'm done
Lol! I'm getting used to it now! I'm moving pretty good! Standing up straight too! Will post some more pictures soon! How are you liking your new CG? You get your drains out yet? I'm on day 2 no pain pills or Tylenol! God bless!

How's it going? Got my full body vice grip suit on Friday so we're twins now!
Reply
It's a full body one that hooks and zips on both sides. Goes past my knees. Pulls at my incisions! Then I'm supposed to wear my binder over top of that! I feel like a sumo wrestler!

I'm thinking I will attempt make up and some clothes today! Hell I might even do something with my hair....oh hell my husband won't be able to guess my mood today hehehe! Feeling frisky? Not too frisky ;-)

I know how you feel, the swelling is what's getting me. But, I'm managing I've asked myself over and over. What the hell have I done. But as each day passes I'm loving my results. Even though you go through the ups and downs to achieve this. But, hell, after all I feel like we owe it to ourselves. After having kids and after extreme weight loss. Happy healing to you.

I bought wine tonight! It helps with blood flow! So I won't care if I'm swollen! Kids to bed and mommy time! Hope you're doing better and I think you look fabulous!

Been sleeping back in bed! Husband tried and scored! He is so proud......no pain! :) was 2 weeks yesterday and the swelling goes down more everyday! I'm worried about Thanksgiving and all the traveling we have to do........yuck! Hope everyone is healing well and Happy Holidays!
Glad your doing well. I've been in my bed too but aunt flow stopped hubby in his tracks lol!

Aw poor hubby! Mine came early, started right after surgery. Was supposed to be 10 days after. It wasn't bad so not complaining! I think I'm going to have some scar tissue on right side. Pretty hard on my incision, no pain there though. I go on the 6th to get the rest of my stitches out, they itch like crazy! Happy healing!

My post op is on the 6th as well!
