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.
