The surgeon had a lot of questions for me about the diet, how my blood work improved, etc., etc. As a lot of us know, back pain can really hamper any exercise attempts and I know I gained prior to the fusion surgery because I was sitting around eating since it hurt so much to move.
Its always great to see the health benefits especially to this program! I had a nice compliment yesterday from one of my 'thin' friends. She was asking about healthy carbs and the program I was on because she said that I was looking so healthy and that sometimes people who are losing weight don't. I thought that was great to hear, I want to be healthy, not just slim! She wanted to know about the carbs for her own diet. I was pleased that others notice the health benefits and not just my losses!
