I have been doing very well. On an average I am losing 2 lbs a month, not bad for someone who's mostly on bed rest, due to a bad foot. That's been the case since June,,,, with at "the moment" allowed to walk,,, some, and I AM !!! This will NOT last for long,, the hardware is coming out of the side of my foot. It's a race between that coming outta my big toe,,,, or the bone healing aided by a bone stimulator.

Does this KEEP ME from Exercising? NO !! it does NOT !!! I am a GOOOO GETTER !! This was my # 18th surgery on feet. and if I used "pain" as an "excuse" to not move since most of my injuries are life long, I'd NEVER Do ANY. I am surrounded on the DAWGGIE team (5% challenge to lose 5% of our weight in 8 weeks), with 2 other Leaders also in severe, lasting pain, who also are GOOO GETTERS or working on being such. GOOO CHERI and MARYANNGI ! If THEY CAN do it ,,, so CAN I unless my Dr has me on a "not do a thing" order,,, which only happens at surg recovery time,, 2 weeks. He WANTS me to do things,, as do ALL of my Dr's,,,, and I used to be a gymnast when in HS,, I LOVE pushing my body ! WOOHOOOO !!

My goal for this yr,, is to go from 210 down to 190 ! YEAH ! YES I WANT ONEDERLAND ! I CAN DO THIS ! Hoping either May or June for that. :) I go slower than a turtle, but I GET THERE !!!

Thanks for checking in on me, I think I just have a big old stupid cold. It is getting on my nerves! emoticon I switched my daytime over the counter meds yesterday and I'm going to pick up some NyQuil for tonight since the night time meds I'm taking now is not helping with my coughing and sleeping. Yesterday and last night were rough. emoticon Unless things get worse, I should be back to walking my dog tonight. I am just not up for going to the gym with tissue stuffed up my nose while working out on the elliptical, it wouldn't be a pretty sight especially after I fall off the dang thing due to all the coughing. I will be taking a few days break from the gym until I can get a handle on this.

Stay warm & have a great day!!

Thanks for the positive strokes, but I feel like I should be doing more. The other night when I was on, it was storming and the internet kept going in and out. I had a team email all ready to send with motivational stuff on it, a really good one, and just as I hit send, the internet went out! Lost the email, it didn't send, and I didn't have the energy to try to recreate it and try to send it again. So I just went to bed.

I had to take a break from the 5%. Lots going on with mom-in-law & now I'm working on my resume for this job that closes on Thursday. I'm still exercising (ST & cardio) & making healthy choices. Scale still isn't really moving, but I feel good, so that's what I'm going to focus on.
