Start Over

Monday, November 08, 2010

Well here it is Nov 8, 2010--& I've gained back some of what I lost. So have reset all my goals etc and am starting fresh. I purchased a used treadmill and I'm going to see if I can strengthen my back enough to use it on a daily basis. I'm always afraid to walk outside as my back issues cause my legs to go numb and I'm afraid of falling. They have lunch time skating at our local arena and my daughter & I are going to start going--I'm going this week to purchase skates.

so wish me luck!

    Falling is also one of my biggest fears, Keeps me close to home usually and I've fallen there plenty. Ice Skating!! You are so much braver than I am. I've broken an arm and a hip in falls so No way I would get on ice. If you have a daughter that will be there the activity with a loved one will burn more calories and loneliness than anything else. You are awesome. emoticon

    Good for you - I've started over a number of times - the key is that you have a plan! Good job!

    emoticon Glad you're starting over. You're sooo worth it! Great purchase. Try to start off slow and steady and gauge how you feel. For back, leg and knee issues... an elliptical would help alleviate it. That may be a good investment if the treadmill aggravates things. It's so much easier on the joints than the treadmill. All the best on your weight loss journey! emoticon
