Hi everyone! It's been months since I've written a blog and I feel that I owe you guys an update. I haven't given up on my goals, I just have to do them slower. I was FINALLY released from the hospital for good on August 3, 2012 and it's been a struggle getting used to using a wheelchair and such at home. My bedroom at the moment is set up like a hospital room, so it kind of feels like I'm still in the hospital (which isn't very comforting). But all in all, I'm glad to be home. I've been working with physical therapy and occupational therapy to get my strength up so that I can walk on my own and do things on my own like I used to. I'm so ready to get back into the gym!!! I'm constantly reading weight loss blogs, keeping up with the progress of others because it keeps my motivation going. My walking is getting much better, I just have to get my breathing under control. The bad thing is, when I start working out again, I'll be back at my starting weight due to all the medications that I'm on. But I know I can shed it off once I'm strong enough to really get moving. Until then, I'll continue to take things one day at a time. I'd really like some extra love from you guys. I could truly use the support!!
