Out of breath...

Because of the incision around my rib cage, it's difficult to breathe. Each breath is painful, so I take small breaths. I am sick of this, so I just went for a walk somewhere between 1.25 and 1.5 miles. Man, was that hard! My feet are swollen and numb due to the water weight and my hips hurt on each stride due to the water weight, also. Painful fat is so weird!

I'm giving myself until the weekend to build back up to my 3-mile route around the neighborhood. I can't stand this and exercise seems to be the only way to fix it.

Dude, I totally understand what you're going through - I put on 56 pounds during my first pregnancy & it was nearly all water weight. The pain & pressure is indescribable and so unlike anything ever felt before- your skin actually hurts because it's so "puffed up". Hang in there & remember to keep drinking LOTS of water - it'll help flush it out of your system.
