Update and More Before and After Pics

Friday, November 30, 2012

Quick update...or lack of one, actually.

Yes, I am alive.
My weight is holding pretty steady but I am getting more lumpy because working out has become impossible. My little foot issue turned into a huge foot issue and now I'm worried it might mean surgery. Months ago I was begging to be able to run again, but now is be happy just to walk without constant pain. I'm wearing the inserts the doc ordered for me and rehabbing as best I can with stretches every day (trying to remember to do it 3 times a day).

Also dealing with some financial stuff as Hubs and I are still trying to find better jobs (Hibs had an interview today). I got promoted in title but not pay at work, so I'm busier than ever. It is what it is.

Anyhow, wanted to share a few things with you.

1) I'm shooting for a serious goal of Jan 1st to literally be back on my feet. I hope it happens! I miss working out!

2) this picture:

I knew there was a picture here somewhere from the very beginning, when I was 466.6 pounds. Sad, right? This was the me that was pretty much bed-ridden. I'm not where I want to be yet (running, lifting, swimming and in and around a size 16/18) but I'm certainly not there anymore.

Here's a couple new pics from our family photo shoot just before Thanksgiving:

I hope everyone is doing well and having a good holiday. I promise if I wasn't so darn busy right now is be over here driving you all crazy like before. Here's hoping things settle down for that soon enough! ;)

    Great family shots, E. The boys look so big! I can't believe how fast they grow up, huh? I'm sure you guys must be looking forward to Xmas. What a great time with the age they are! Be patient with the foot - it will heal in time, and take some time to enjoy the holiday season with your beautiful family!
