I am a 8 Year Post-Op From Gastric-Bypass Surgery. I originally lost 160 pounds. I was seriously sick about 3 years ago and have just gotten weaker and weaker. I want to lose about 15 lbs. but more importantly I need to get in shape. I have been having a lot of trouble getting started and sticking to any sort of eating & exercise plaln. I need all the encouragement I can get.

Member Since: 9/5/2006

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
I want to find the motivation to walk each day, build strength & endurance and tone my body. I want to lose 15lbs. and feel good as the Old Maid of Honor in my niece's wedding at the end of May.. I have arthritis in both my back & knees and need that core strength to carry this body of mine.

My Program:
I hope to workout 3 times a week and walk my two dogs 4 times a week. Post Gastric-Bypass patients are always in a fight to get in enough Protein, so I am setting a goal of getting in at least 40. Also, I''m not a water drinker, but will start--4 glasses a day.

Personal Information:
I've just spent the last year redecorating/remodeling a house. All I can say with limited assurance is I don't think it will fall down in the near future. I had a blast through all the cussing. I'm glad I did it---now hope it will sell.

Other Information:
I''ve been addicted to Fountain Diet Dr. Pepper. I buy a 44oz. I actually think the addiction is about the crushed ice. Not great for my water consumption. I'm really going to work toward becoming a vegetarian in 2010. I just watched "Food, In." It could change anyone.
