Full Circle

Saturday, June 02, 2012

I was reading some of my entries on my sparkpage and realized that I have literally come full circle in my weight loss journey. I began this journey in september 2008 and lost 55 pounds in 6 months. I had an injury and several other traumatic events that set me back for three years until I finally decided to try again in 2011. Now it has been 6 months and I have lost 55 pounds again. I am also undergoing surgery on monday. This scares me a little because the last time I was injured I gained all of my weight back and could not get back on track for three years. I have come so far. I do not want to go back the the way things were. I want to continue to lose weight until I reach my goal and then maintain for the rest of my life. So, after the surgery the doctor says that I can walk short distances as long as it is comfortable for me. SO that is what I will start with. I don't know what is going to happen, but I want to be back on my feet and running again soon. I know I can't rush it and risk an even bigger injury. So I will take it slow and see what happens.

    Even when you are injured, you can still eat fact, it's even MORE reason to eat healthy because you want to heal as quickly as possible. So you can do it! Even if you're not exercising, as long as your calories are within range, you shouldn't gain any weight back. emoticon

    Good, I'm glad you know not to rush things. What you can do is pray about what to do.

I understand about having set backs. I'm in one now.

SOOOOO looking forward to moving and doing again.
