That sounds great, Peachy. I think one thing this surgery taught me is that I definitely need a little "me" time, and that it's OK to take it.

So glad your incision's healing. I know my little ones are itching like ****'s fire but I know that just means they're healing. AUGGGGH! ;)

Peachy and Indigo, congratulations. You are both making super progress!

Peachy, the walking is probably the best thing you can do. At around 230 pounds, I started a walking program -- maybe 20 minutes during my lunch. Now I am a 7-day-a-week exerciser (cardio, step, stability ball, Pilates, weights -- you name it) and in the best shape of my life. But it all started with the walking. I proved it is literally true that the longest journey begins with but a single step!

Best wishes to you, and to you as well, Indigo, on your journey to health.
