I just had to share this with all the great people who have joined the DS site. Before my GB surgery on June 3, I had a terrible time climbing stairs, even the 4 that lead into our house. I had to take them one at a time. Today, I purchased a 40lb bag of dog food for the puppy, and was carrying it into the house. All of a sudden it dawned on me that I had not been climbing the steps one at a time for some time. Today I had to with the extra 40lbs. It really made me stop and think how my poor joints and bones suffered when I was carrying around those extra pounds. I have lost a total of 65 so far and feeling absolutely wonderful. Good luck to all of you that have upcoming surgery and best wishes to all of you who are still losing like me.
