When I went in for my surgery on November 19 2014, I weighed 254 pounds. After the surgery, I was so nauseous, on pain killers, and didn't feel like doing anything.
But to regain mobility in my knee / leg, I needed to do leg exercises. By the end of December, I had lost several pounds, had regained full mobility in my knee, and, except for the pain, was starting to feel better.
The surgery made my fibromyalgia worse. Biggest flare-up I've ever had, and it's not going away. I read about diets to help with the fibro, so I started eating mostly fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, legumes, and gluten-free.
I added exercycling to my daily routine. Then found my 3-pound hand weights and started working with them, in addition to physical therapy.
But the physical therapy was making my other leg/knee worse. I had to stop that. I researched exercises to do in bed, and changed things.
As of last week, I have lost 27 pounds since my surgery.
I exercycle daily.
I work out with weights daily, on the bed.
I do my knee exercises daily, on the bed.
I do mock-stomach-crunches daily, on the bed.
I started water therapy 2 weeks ago, but because of the snow, have attend only once so far. Hope the snow goes away soon.
If **I** can lose weight, so can YOU!
I have another 50-75 pounds to go. I CAN do this!
