Got my surgery date

Wow, thanks much! I hadn't thought about doing crunches, etc. to prepare my belly. I have upped my walking and plan to use some of my excercise videos to try to get back into shape, as much as possible in 5 weeks.

I have gained about 40 lbs over the last few years and am soooo frustrated how hard it has been to lose. When I first gained 40 lbs (about 6-7 years ago), I spent 1 1/2 years losing 32 lbs. Then another round of steroids for my asthma accompanied by pnuemonia, and poof, in 7 weeks, gained 20 lbs back. Another couple rounds of steroids and gradually gained all weight back. I have refused the use of ANY steroids since. Will take longer to let my lungs get better, because it takes at least a year for the nasty stuff to get out of my system. I hope to lose at least 10 lbs before my surgery.

Thanks for more ideas on things to stock up on. Hubby really hates to shop, so I really do need to stock up on some things.

Luckily, he loves to cook, unfortunately, his cooking has contributed to my weight gain. I will have to make meal plans and he will accomodate me. Just have to be sure I stock up on all the groceries, like you suggested.

I loved your long post. It wasn't as long as my first posting though! I think I was trying to write a book!

Thanks again!

I love this site!
