So many health issues, the passing of my mother and the need to care for my dad. I have been so engulfed in doing everything for everyone that I have gotten into a self-destructive spiral. I went back to indulging in all the bad foods and habits. I am starting fresh. I have been in a wheelchair for a while and I am just beginning to stand up on my own again. I will take things more slowly this time and try to be more honest with myself and goal focused. If I have a bad food day then it will be just that and not a bad food week. Each day I will start anew and hopefully succeed this time.
I have gained so much weight in that wheelchair. My ankles are hurting again and so are my knees. Unbelievable, I used to love gymnastics and received trophies for it, now, walking is a struggle. I want my life back so I have to be accountable.

    Are you familiar with INDYGIRL ? She used to be in a wheelchair and has lost a lot of weight on SP. She has her own team and is on our SU team also. Maybe she would have some tips on exercise.

We found it helpful in the loss of our son. There may be a local group if you and your dad can get out to attend.

    If your body was strong and athletic in the past it will know how to get back there! You've been through a lot. Losing your mom, taking care of your dad,your own limited mobility-in time like this we look for food as our comfort and mental medicine. Too bad it sometimes turns around and becomes our poison!!
I am happy for you that you are able to start walking again!
Post often about your progress and I am sure you will get a lot of feedback-this can help you to stay on the right track. emoticon
