Every time it gets a little bit better

I went from a 110-pound ballet dancer to a 200+ pound miserable 20-something who probably should have sued her doctor for not taking her off the medication that did it. After all that, I just gave up, and started binge eating and stopped trying completely. I was up to 315 in December, 2009 when I had the back surgery I'd been putting off for 10 years, and right after that I moved from a big city across the country to a much calmer, nicer kind of place.

I went from a 110-pound ballet dancer to a 200+ pound miserable 20-something who probably should have sued her doctor for not taking her off the medication that did it. After all that, I just gave up, and started binge eating and stopped trying completely. I was up to 315 in December, 2009 when I had the back surgery I'd been putting off for 10 years, and right after that I moved from a big city across the country to a much calmer, nicer kind of place. I found out at the doctor in April that I'd lost 17 pounds since my surgery through no effort of my own... I had been eating better and less because I was happier and had been moving around more because even with the post-surgical recovery pain I'm in less pain than I have been for years! Last week I went back to the doctor and found out I'd lost three more pounds... and no, I still hadn't been doing anything special. I figure now is the time to start actually making an effort to move around more, especially since it's time to start physical therapy... I want to start getting some muscle tone back and get healthy, so I can be pain-free and active again! I also figure that there are probably things I'm eating that aren't as healthy as I think they are, so the nutrition tracker has been helping with that. Better now than never, right?

My Program:
Since my surgery, I've been moving around a bit more. My plan is to continue, and add formal physical therapy when I'm cleared to, and pay more attention to what and how much I'm eating!

What an amazing plait! How many strands does it have? Did you do it yourself?

Thanks for commenting on my blog! I'm happy to announce that my partner found BOTH items. The whole point of writing the blog entry was to get these thoughts out of mind. Otherwise, I'd be more prone to binge eating.
