Down 40# since May is fantastic! :yes!: My challenge always seems to be keeping it off. Good luck, I know our joints appreciate carrying a little less weight. :heehee:

What a nice update @leejaa thanks for sharing!
You are taking the slow, steady and sensible approach while healing. I'm sure previous experience has been a good teacher. The walk in the field on your property sounds wonderful with the benches placed in various locations affording you the opportunity to take a break under cloudy blue skies while soaking in the sunshine and sounds of nature. It sounds very relaxing.

I'll bet volunteering at the food bank feels fullfillng. Mojo can relate to that as that's what she does for work each day. It sounds as though it can be physically demanding and exhausting at times. Kudos to you for giving of your time in that way.

Congrats on your weight loss and managing to keep it off as you're recovering. Awesome accomplishment!

Hope you have a great rest of the week!

Such a wonderful two month update. You are taking very good care of you. I hope to follow in your footsteps.
Our dog really loved that I went out with them.
Yes, dogs I think know when we are getting worse, and when we are getting better.

Sounds like a very idyllic place you have for recovery.

Can’t belive you can volunteer so soon. It is so wonderful your town does this, and you can participate

Congratulations for keeping your weight loss !

The clock starts ticking for me....pre-surgery over.

@VSlowLife, soon you too will be on the sunny side and recovering. It must feel great to have all the pre surgery over with and passed. I know I celebrated and gave a sigh of relief with each step.

I love where I live even if it is way out - scenery is great. I do enjoy being able to get out there and just soak up the trees and sunshine. It is also nice that now I can go out regularly and play ball with my pooch. My husband tells me Riley(dog) likes the way I throw the ball better than when he does and I have to agree. It is nice to be able to do it pain free. Soon you will enjoy your puppy more without pain.

Absolutely! The last hoop was today. I will have to celebrate tomorrow. Today my teeth were clenching on the train home. I was up at 4:45. I too, like ”....to soak up the trees and sunshine.”
It’s been a long day. PJs here I come!
