...that's how long the doctor thinks it will take for me to make a full recovery. Once the wounds (scabs) have healed, I can start swimming for exercise. And when I can stand it, going easily on the elliptical again. It could have been MUCH worse. MUCH! So I will try hard not to complain and just be thankful that I will make a full recovery!

    I read back in your blogs and discovered you had a moped accident that has led to this enforced rest period. I am sorry you're going through such a tough time, but I think you're right to keep a perspective that says it could have been so much worse.

Best of luck. Keep posting so we'll know how you're doing.

It's been a while since I blogged...

Sunday, July 17, 2011

...I had a moped accident a week ago. I'm in a knee imobilizer and on pain meds. I go for an ortho appointment tomorrow morning. The meds make me a bit weepy and I'm very impatient to get back up and around. I'm trying to listen to my body and give it the time and rest it needs. This is a lesson in patience for me!

I was very concerned that I'd gain weight while just lying around. But so far, 7 days in, I've not done that. Being very aware of what goes in my mouth, how much and why...NOT going to start eating out of boredom, of which I'm experiencing a LOT of lately!

Will update when there's more to update...

    Hi, Kim! Glad to see you sparking, and so sorry to hear about your accident. You've come so far, and now more than ever listen to your body and give it the time it needs to rest and heal. You know what to do when it lets you know it's ready to come back out and play again. All in time...

Quick blog entry...

Thursday, June 23, 2011

...it's been a long while, so I thought I'd drop a quick note...still hanging in there...still struggling with knee issues...still working with Echelle and journaling food and exercise. Still wearing 8's and 10's with a goal of 6 eventually. More when there's more to report!

Long time without a blog entry

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

It's been a long while since an update...because there's not a lot going on. My knee is still troublesome, I'm working out when it allows me to. My next appointment (rhumatology) is in a week. Because I've been doing more weight lifting while the knee is bum, I'm gaining muscle, which means the scale is going up a bit. But all my clothes still fit, some dresses a bit looser. so I'm trying not to freak about the number. Using my clothes as my guide. My arms are more defined. Don't want them to get big or anything...just defined. That's about it, really...hopefully some better news next week, after my appointment.

    Congratulations on losing inches. Remember the scale is only a tool and only gives part of the picture. I hope your next appointment brings you good news. emoticon
