On the road again

Tuesday, October 04, 2011

Well it happened - I worked so hard for 3 years and finally June of 2010 I hit a goal of 150 pounds and not 16 months later I have gained 60 of those pounds back. My doctor said I have to get this weight off even if it means taking drastic measures as my back cannot take the extra weight. I am not allowed to lift anything over ten pounds and I am carrying 50 pounds more than I need.

I know what happened - my back started hurting again - the holidays came - hubby came home from deployment and I just went back to my old habits. I ate what ever I wanted especially soft serve ice cream that I found at the C-Store. I began staying in bed most of the day except to get cleaned up and find something to eat. There wasn't any exercise or accountability.

So I am on the road again - Minna - My ever faithful German Shepherd have hit the road again. Last night and tonight we took a quick walk around the block and quick for me is 50 minutes - I remember when Minna and I use to walk 10 miles or more every day.... heavy sigh ohhhhh the good ole days.

Doc says he will see me back in 8 weeks and he hopes I have lost near 32 pounds - that's like 6 pounds a week or something stupid - 2 or 3 pounds is safe ohhh I don't know I just dread going through this whole thing again when I had worked so hard and looked so good. I was so proud of myself last year and I could wear anything. But pulling myself back together again.... I promise not to do it again.

Going forward today is the only day I am living for - not yesterday or tomorrow - today only
and as for today I can honestly say I walked and didn't go over my calorie budget.

GO ME!!! Take Care of Yourself

    O.K. Ms. Ryn,

It looks like we are in the same boat and it appears that our downfall began at about the same time. I have also regained 50 pounds. Just because we are on opposite sides of the country does NOT mean that we can not keep each other accountable.

It seems that it is time for us to reestablish the old team of Rynriddle and Stutterbox leading the team board again. We both need to get back to work.

I will be checking back in to see how you are doing. I expect progress. YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! emoticon emoticon
