When I signed up to do this challenge I knew I would be having surgery. I figured I would still be able to participate. After the first week of the challenge I decided to go spinning out of control and ate everything in site. I decided to give up on my team. I have now had my surgery and I'm back on track with the food. I'm back to being at the same weight as when we started the challenge. I don't want to give up on myself and my team. The doctor has given me the ok to start to exercise again. I need to work on getting my blood pressure back in check. I know if I loose 10 lbs and start to exercise my blood pressure will go back down. Much better than taking another pill. Thanksgiving will be tough. There is always so much food. I am going to figure out what I want to eat and the calories.
I hope I will have the will power to stick to it. I don't want to go out of control again. I should be good on the sweets. Last week I ate 3/4 of an apple pie, chocolates, cookie everything I shouldn't be eating. I am excited to be part of this team and I look forward to getting to know everyone. I can do this and I will. I want to wish everyone a wonder Thanksgiving! Lets not forget what we are thankful for. I am thankful for Sparkpeople and all the wonderful people here. Thanks for all your support.
