Intermanaut - I read it when it came out and it has scarred me for life. I am not sure that fast food is any more nutritious than it was nine years ago but I am happy to be corrected. I still cannot eat a McDs when sober
Thanks for the update. I have a stinking cold and have been on the sofa with my daughter watching Sponge Bob for two days now... and am not much better. I keep checking the forum just to keep my brain active!
It sounds like you are doing all the right things, I found that joining Weight Watchers made me look at food differently, and also reading Fast Food Nation (can't remember who wrote it, sorry) as it put me off McDonalds for life!
Don't worry about the label on the trackies, if you keep up with this new start then you will be buying smaller ones soon enough. Let us know how your walk goes today.
It might be the same as a c-section, which is at least six weeks before you start gentle exercise sometimes ten or twelve depending on the exercise. You have to do what you feel comfortable doing as Slugsta said, and don't try anything while on strong pain killers as it will mask any pain if you are over doing things and you wont realise until you are due your next dose of pain relief...
Where abouts are you based? Is there somewhere nice you can walk? On a day like this, there is not much that beats a nice walk around a park or forest. Congrats on making a start, and like everyone has said, keep on going and let us know how you progress!
