Hi Spark friends. Thanks for reading my biog. I hope your weight loss journey is going well for you. Thanks for all you do for me with the motivation and comments I receive daily from you.
I can hardly believe that it is 7 months now since I discovered Spark. It has really been a blessing for me and such a motivator. I decided I better update my goals and program and renew my commitments to myself in this journey. So, I did this today and have planned a new goal date too.
I had to change my goal date and make it later than I originally planned. I will be having knee surgery on April 13th. I will be off of my regular exercise plan and food plan since I will be in the hospital for two weeks. After my knee surgery, I will be doing P.T. in the hospital for two weeks and then once home for another 4-5 weeks P.T. So, I am concerned that I may have a problem losing and I hope being less active does not make me gain. Please do not let me gain!! (-: (-: I plan to take my WW 's calculator, pocket guide and notebook with me and really hope I can track daily. I hope the food is healthy, but you never know. I cook healthy with whole grains at home and know I am spoiled with all my favorite foods.
So, wish me well and a successful surgery, okay? (-: (-: I appreciate it. I only hope for the best and want to be free of this pain and be able to have a active life and enjoy my family, friends and all the wonderful gifts life has to offer. I want to see my grand kids grow up and enjoy life. Life is short. I want to make it a healthy happy one. As soon as I can drive and go up and down the steps I am planning to get back into
FULL SWING with my exercise routines.
I will be here on Spark for another 10 days, so keep me posted how you are doing and Stay Strong with your program. I know you can do it. I am so proud of all of you and your success with your weight loss commitment. Only Winner's do this and we are Winners!!
I will not have computer access while I am away, so I will miss all of you. I will return and check in when I can. Maybe I will be lucky to borrow a laptop for an hour when I am in the hospital, but not sure if this will be allowed either. So, I will have to shut off my email and community posts coming in-- at home here. I have made so many wonderful friends on Spark and many of you feel like family to me. (-: (-: In case, I have missed anyone lately with comments to you, just know I do appreciate your great endeavors and daily status comments too. Be well and safe and keep Sparkin!! hugs, Ei
