So I have my hernia repair Sept. 4th- all started off so well. By the following Mon. I was very sick. I had nausea and was throwing up. I called the doctor and they seemed to think it was a reaction to the painkiller. So I stopped taking it... Read more

So it was confirmed today that I have a hernia. The doctor said it was probably a result of my hysterectomy. Oh joy! Well at least now I know for sure. When i felt a lump in my abdomen I panicked a bit. He said I can still do light exercis... Read more

We have this great trail in the town I live in but I don't get to walk it because I don't drive (yet- long story, for another journal) and my husband rarely wants to go to it. Well today he had to go into work for a bit and he suggested I walk ... Read more

I drastically cut the sugar from my diet for the last few days and what a difference. The scale is finally moving in the right direction. I gave up sugar before and was successful but man, when I fell off that wagon, I fell hard. So far I'm a... Read more

Strategies- sunflower seeds in the shell. These worked for me for those times I wasn't really hungry but I wanted to eat. They kept my mouth busy as I worked to get the tasty morsel from its shell and I would realize I was full before I ate to... Read more

Chewing gum helped but I did have a late night snack attack so I'm going to have a cup of hot tea at night to hold off the late night munchies. I'm also going to do a better job of recording my food. I did get up to exercise this morning... Read more
Today I will...

My strategy for today will be to chew gum instead of reaching for the unhealthy snacks especially when I am not hungry. I am hoping this will get me over my eating white bread for no reason habit that I've picked up. I've been exercising... Read more

I worked out today for over an hour. I did an outdoor workout from Fitness mag and then walked/jogged for 2 miles after that. I felt great! I need to remember how good it felt next time I'm tempted to skip a workout!... Read more

My eating habits have been atrocious lately. I'm making poor choices and eating too much. I'm getting better with exercise. I lose weight slowly. Before my hysterectomy it was maybe 1/2 lb./week. I knew it would be harder after but I though... Read more

I had two good workouts the last two days! My eating is still over the limit and a few unclean/unhealthy snacks on my list. Tomorrow is a new day. My goal for the rest of the week is to stay in my calorie limit and no junk food. I also want ... Read more

Not so good today. I went over in calories and under in exercise. I eat when I'm not hungry- I need a strategy for that. I eat things I shouldn't- things I buy for my kids- they don't need it either. Tomorrow is another day.... Read more
I'm on a roll!

Another day of good eating choices (except for the minchos- but I only ate one serving and still stayed in my calorie range) and I even exercised today. I feel like I'm finally headed in the right direction. I felt a lot better today too.... Read more
So far, so good!

I did much better with my food choices today. I did not exercise though. I've been so tired lately. Tomorrow my goal is to continue to log my food and stay within my calorie range AND exercise. Everyone I talk to who has had a hysterectomy ha... Read more
