1 New Year, 1 new Life.

Friday, January 07, 2011

Last year was a disaster with my weight lose. I actually gained back a lot of what I had lost. Most of the weight gain occurred during the time that I was sick last year. Seems like each time I was out for a whole month at a time. And because of the pain I had, I spent more time doing nothing then doing what I should to stay healthy. I fell short of all my goals because of this. The year ended with me having an operation which made the whole month of December a negative month because the doctor told me I could not exercise.

Well! Starting on January 2 the doctor told me I could start back up with my cardio exercises. I worked with the therapist to find out what I could do and still stay in my doctors guide lines and he came up with exercises I can do. So my goal is for an hour of cardio a day. Either at the gym or walking. I still have a several months before I can start back on the strength training which has been essential at helping to reduce my pain. But until then I am committing to an hour a day, six days a week, of exercises.

I am hoping that this year well be great and I will be able to stick with my goals.

    Elaine, I let my illness bring me down to the point where I was 100 lbs heavier then I should be. I lost 50 of it but then was sick a lot in 2010 and gained most of it back, Now I am trying again to bring it back down. This time I have more limitations then I did before but I am working through them. Thanks to a great physical therapist.

    I can Relate ! wow , how many times do we need to do this right?

I had major injury in May of 2010....fell through a deck up to my knees where the knees stopped me from going all the way through. I didnt break a bone ,but I tore my hamstrings and sliced up some nerves. Suffering and in pain I sat and ate alot !
it was the only pleasure I could find.Well the 30 pound weight gain did not help my pain and now I am in more pain than ever! so I am on my way to losing weight . I can feel it in my soul !
But I need help....and support as we all do !
Good luck on your journey !

    Been there, done that and I didn't even have an excuse. Pulmonary Fibrous and the desire to breath is making me try again. If we did it once we can do it again! emoticon Kay

    I had abdominal surgery in May of 2010... it's tough getting going again, huh. LOL

I'm still dealing with issues. I ended up with a MAJOR vitamin D deficiency that added 35 pounds! UGH! Now I'm taking 50,000IU TWICE A WK, and at least I've stopped gaining... but I have all that to lose all over again! YIKES.

I'm glad you're moving ahead again... I'm right there too! YAY!

I KNOW you're going to have a GREAT year--I know that's what I'm planning for me too! LOL
