Wow! Go, RAMA! I'm all recovered from my various minor surgeries (no more heartburn - YAY!) and the best part is I lost a ton of weight while recovering, pretty much without effort. (Stomach surgery will do that for you.) And now that I'm feeling fine, I've started walking again. I'm up to 5 miles and I'm ready to do 10K on my next walk. I was all set to start weightlifting at the gym again, and I did something nasty to my shoulder while reaching for a high shelf at work. So I think I'll wait a week to make sure I don't aggravate a rotator cuff or something. Meanwhile I'm trying to do plenty of stretching and some abs work, which is never a bad idea.
