just an update on my past few days. Have been working 2 16 hour shifts this weekend. My knee survived. It was hurting and swelling , but it's getting better. I am off for 4 days(need that to recover...lol) and than I will work some swing shifts. Not my favorite shift, but at least I am working.
I really like my job and the facility that I work in. Met some pretty amazing people. Just got to resist the temptation to order food out from the local restaurants.
Haven't been able to keep up with all my Spark friends lately, but will get busy on all the blogs , that I missed. Love you all.
Just a little update... have been working a lot lately, just got off a 16 hour shift yesterday evening. It jusy feels great to get out of the house and do what you love to do. Well, and the paycheck is not bad either....lol.
My knee is holding up pretty good, just get a little tired and sore @ the end of the shift...but getting plenty of walking in .....
Sorry I haven't been able to keep up with my friend feed....will do better....
My journey to weight loss and a happier healthier life started in January 2012. I was on medical leave for a bad knee,which required surgery . I weighed in @ 300 lbs and I was not happy with myself and I knew that I had to change the way I eat and live, if I wanted to get slimmer and healthier. My doctor told me to loose weight and offered to give me some pills to help. But I turned him down , because I know that it is only a temporary fix.
Starting Spark people was the best thing I ever done. It holds me accountable for my actions. I know I have to track my food every day, so I don't get side tracked. Some of my friends think I getting obsessed with tracking, but I don't let it bother me, because I am doing this for myself .
Here are some comparisons to my weight loss journey.
300lbs -my beginning weight
My weight now 270lbs
And this will be my goal 200lbs
I am going from a big fat catfish to a sleek pretty fish.
But the journey is not over yet.
