Tim, I just finished watching most of your youtube videos. A little hard to watch (I know,
even harder to go through.............)

I am so sorry, I can't imagine being your nurse and when you are in pain not having
the ability to alleviate it. I totally understand the panic attacks............

I will be thinking of you and praying for you! I hope as you browse the spark web pages,
etc. that you find help and comfort in them. We are here to cheer you on in your journey
to walk again and to gain a whole new healthy life-style.

Keep us informed and know we are thinking of you.

Yeah, yeah, Tim, check out the very friendly "competition" we are having in the lose a pound a week thread. Not only a lot of fun in general, but lots of great convo in those threads too.

Hi Tim. emoticon

It's great to have you here.

First off--WOW, great job in losing so much weight already. I hope you can get that surgery soon to get rid of the mass you have. That will help you so much in your ability to move around. In the meantime, there are so many things you can do just to move a little, and you probably already know that since you've come so far already.

Have you seen the chair exercises on the SparkVideo page that coach Nicole has? I used them a LOT when I first started, and still use them occasionally for extra movement. They seem so simple, but really help the body get used to moving and build up muscle strength.

Do you have access to a pool? (Yeah, I'm a HUGE advocate of pool exercise... mostly because it has really been my lifesaver.) LOL If you do, that's a great way to get moving with far less impact on your body, but still a lot of muscle work.

Looking forward to getting to know you more, and so glad VirginiaGirl convinced you to join. This is a great group of very friendly, supportive people.


PS--just reread and realized that you are hospitalized. I'm sure the PT there will help you overcome the mobility issues... do they have a pool (some hospitals do, but probably only the bigger ones, not sure where you are.)

I'm new here, was invited by Virginiagirl My name is Tim Cogdill, I live in Olathe, KS, I'm 41 and weigh 652lbs, down from 800lbs on January 1st. I have a mass on my lower body that weighs 100-200lbs. I'm trying to get into rehab so I can walk again as I have been bed bound since entering the hospital, and eventually with more weight lost a surgeon to remove the mass.
