I am getting my gall bladder out next Tues 05/04/2010. I am so glad! I hurt almost everytime I eat or drink!
Sure hope the stomach and back pain are gone after the gall bladder is gone too! My friend Cindy has walked me me a few times and I have started walking with my co worker Lena once a week. She has been taking off weight like crazy and looks fantastic. I get most of her hand me downs, so I really encourage her to lose.
I love walking now! Go figure! No pain in my feet and it makes my back hurt much less when I am walking! I wear a pedometer every day now and am hoping to get up to at least 8000 steps a day, 10000 is my goal. This new life is wonderful, no regrets. The floppy arms and loose skin are not thrilling, but so much better than the rolls and not being able to bend over to tie my shoes. I even got a little cute pair of highheeled sandals. I have not worn them yet, but I got them! Clothes shopping is so much fun now, I used to hate it.
Thank you God for the wonders you show me every day. Bluebirds and trees, snow, rain and green grass, my children and grandchildren... All glory, honor and credit to You for allowing me to live long enough to take advantage of this tool. Thank You for leading me to St Vincents and Dr Inman, she is a wonder. I marvel at how you love me, I am not worthy of this great love. I already abused the body You gave me once, please continue to guide me to take care of myself now and never fall back into bad habits.
