It's been so long!!! I'm a bad blogger...but i want to get back into...well...i haven't ever really been "into" a very steady groove...but here we go!!! I ended up having to have 12 inches of my colon removed back in April due to the diverticulitis I've been suffering from for 3 years. My lap band surgeon did the colectomy, and I was in the hospital for 8 DAYS!!! AARRGGGHHH!!! The only good thing about being in the hospital that long...is that i got down to 202 pounds!!!! He took all of the fluid out of my band during the surgery so that if i got sick i wouldn't hurt myself throwing up. So...lost a foot of colon, and all my restriction. Fast forward 8 weeks...all healed up from colectomy...but still no fluid in my band...then....ALASKA!!!
Hubby and i spent 15 days in Alaska in June, and back packed into the backcountry for seven days...staying in federal government cabins that we had reserved 6 month prior. Total hike of 21 miles, with 34 pound pack...equals...damn...i'm outta shape!!!
Finally back to reality now...finally have some restriction...but back up to 218 pounds!! AARRGGHHHH!!! I have two new yoga dvd's, and the rec center is going to start opening up earlier...so i've got to get after it!!! i want a yoga bod!!!!
I'm going to upload more photos soon!!!
