Went to my doctor yesterday. He wants me to go off the brace a few hours in the morning, followed by a few hours wearing the brace and off again a few hours in the evening. This is very good news for me because it means my foot is healing nicely. So I tried it since yesterday and my foot feels so much better without the brace. I don't just more comfortable, I means less painful.
I go back in 2 weeks so I am hoping that he says I don't have to wear the brace all day. After wearing it for more than a year, a few hours a day is great.
Being able to share with you all has been awesome and thank you all for being here for me. and many more s. Jane
I went to my foot doctor yesterday. He said that my foot is doing real good, seems to be healing and I may be off my foot brace in less than a year.
Great news, thank you Jesus. Said I could do a little moving around (still not much but little bit more). I asked him if I could exercise and he said I could start with a stability ball and no weight bearing exercises. I am excited about this because he would not even let me off my butt for the last 16 months. and I love all my s. Maybe now I can take it off one slow pound at a time. Jane
This is what I want to do--play and move, and have fun.
I have been immobile for over a year and it stinks! I may still be on this brace and down on my butt for maybe another year. I have not lost any weight! I have not gained because I have been logging everything but I would love to see the scale go down a bit.
I am so glad that I discovered this site, it is so helpful to me. I am also so glad for all my spark friends. If there's any of you out there that are also on your butt, got any ideas for moving without putting weight on your foot? Let me know, I am open to any ideas.
Have a super 4th of July. Jane
I have been on Sparkpeople for a few years and I am ambarrassed to say that I am still lost with this program.
Is there anyone out there that can give me a blueprint or directions as to how to follow? I seem to be all over the place with it and tend to get frustrated alot because I feel lost.
So one question I have right now is how to use my calorie intake to lose weight.
According to this plan I need 1200 to 1550 calories daily.
And I read that in order to lose a pound a week, I should use 500 less daily.
So do I now plan on 700 to 1050 calories daily?
If not then how do I do it? I am pretty confused and it makes me feel like I should know this and yet I just haven't got it.
Please help me out on this. Thanks and many hugs to all
I am actually doing this! This day 4 and I am thinking about this challenge as I decide what to eat and I just can't believe it. I am entering what I eat and I wasn't giving a "taste or a pinch or a bite" any notice but I realize now that all of that counts--and it adds up.
I am excited about this and I am serious about staying on this so I will keep you all posted. from Je
