I have lost 9.5 inches from my bust, waist & hips since March, 2009. I will continue to shrink as well.
My sleep is marginally better. Last night, I slept for ~3.5 hours before waking. Sadly, I was awake for nearly an hour before nodding back off. That is the worst part for me - laying there awake. I'm not wide awake, nor is my mind whirling, I'm just not able to slip back over the edge into sleep. I'm not even a week in to the new meds, so I'm not concerned yet. (on a side note insurance has decided that I don't need the meds, so my dr is fighting that battle)
My hip is significantly better! Most mornings, I am able to walk virtually pain free, especially in my right hip. I am still a little concerned about my left hip and I plan to ask the surgeon to x-ray it when I go for my follow up later this month. I'm still needing to pace myself a bit which is hard. By the end of the day my legs are very tired. Still, I am thrilled with the improvement.
Improvement will come in all areas if I just keep doing what I know is right!
