MUCH LATER :) For Karmen

Tuesday, April 05, 2011

April 5 already and I am still dealing with allergies on a daily basis! Had to break down and go get allergy medicine a few weeks ago because I couldn't sleep or do much of anything , I felt like I was drowning with the post nasal drip running down my throat. I wish I could say more weight has come off but I can't say that. I am fluctuating between 181 and 186 pounds depending on how much sodium and how much carbs I eat. I saw my plastic surgeon last week and I was complaining about the pain in my scar tissue in what I call my anchors ( the fat pads on the side of breasts) under my arms that he couldn't take out because that is considered a different lift, they are big and heavy and pull on my breasts when I am exercising and working out and limit what I feel like I can do. He said to work on my weight reduction and see if I can take off another 30 pounds in the next 6 months and see if these anchors disappear in that time and pounds. His nurse took pictures of my new breasts and the anchors , she kept telling me that my breasts look beautiful and how well the scaring looks .
Yesterday I did my first Zumba class since destroying my knee in December 2009 and am pleasantly surprised how little my knee or the rest of me is sore today. This morning I plan on going to the gym for body sculpt and elliptical. I have been having a lot of trouble with my IT band on my right leg because it over compensates for the left leg since that is the knee that is bone on bone , for the last two weeks I have been laying off the spinning because two weeks ago I could barely walk with the IT band being so tight and painful from spinning too much and started rolling out the IT bands with the foam roller at the gym. That is pain full at first but later I can walk and move without pain . So it is worth it!
So I have started changing up my workouts trying different things and hoping I can get more weight off in the next 6 months like I usually do in the heat and wet season here in Florida, I just keep plugging away at it. THAT IS WHAT I DO!

    Thank you for sharing about your surgery. One of my goals is to lose enough weight to have a tummy tuck because I had 6 kids and my belly skin is way too stretched out. Was it scary? How long was recovery?

    So sorry U struggling with allergies. So is our youngest.
    VERY cool U were able to get back to Zumba. I'm scared to try it again since my hip was so bad after the last time & is now feeling good.

    I LOVE reading how much U work out. It's SO inspiring!

    Oh, you DO workout like the best of them! Can't wait to start myself! THEN I'll be OK!
    Sorry about the pain, but when you do lose the 30pounds you'll see how you feel then! Do you do enough cardio?
    I just saw a blouse in one of those flyers you get every day. I love it and showed it to dad. He said I never used to wear clothes like that. I said, Of course I haven't! I will be able to do many things I never could now!
    Oh, PJ, this'll all be so worth it, won't it! LUCKY US! emoticon
