Happy Post-Thanksgiving

Saturday, November 26, 2011

At first I found it very ironic that I haven't been on this website for over a year, and I come back the night after thanksgiving...but then I started thinking about it and it all makes sense.
About three weeks after my last post (Oct 2010), I met my boyfriend (now ex-boyfriend). It's not surprising that when you meet someone and start to fall in love, you stop focusing on tracking what you eat and how much you exercise. I no longer "NEEDED" spark people to motivate me because I had Mike. I wanted to look good for him. Well that lasted for a couple of months, and then came the "I'm comfortable with you" phase for the next 8 or so months. Well, now that we are broken up (still friends, and totally for the best), I'm back to trying to look good FOR ME!

I should let all of you know that in March of this year I actually suffered a bad knee injury and tore my ACL in a competitive kickball league (no jokes, please!). For five months I weighed my options, tried physical therapy, gave up high-heals, gave up working out, and soon found out that surgery was my only course of action.

I went under the knife in August and just last week was cleared by my doctor to give running/stair-master/bikes/ell
ipticals a try. I've been doing physical therapy 3x a week for the last three months and have been trying to eat super healthy during that time. Luckily for me I didn't BLOW UP, but I also didn't really lose any weight. I'm almost exactly where I started right before my knee surgery, which is about three pounds more than I was 13 months ago when I last blogged. I guess 3 pounds in one year isn't BAD--but I wish it went the other way!

I've started a weight loss blog on tumblr--so I'm not sure how much I'll update this blog, but maybe a copy/paste type thing?

To all of you out there reading my blogs--tell me about what success stories you've had in the last year! We all have things to be thankful for.
