Wake up!


Friday, January 04, 2013

Let me just start off by saying I intend nothing said in this blog as a excuse. I fully recognize that my weight gain was a direct result of my actions or lack of actions. emoticon

Over Christmas holiday I hurt my knee. I was just doing laundry, twisted, and apparently thats all it took. Granted, it was a old injury from last year- hurt while working out (yes, I am putting that out there cause it makes me feel a little better) emoticon
I had not went to the doctor, and noticed that the swelling never went completely back down. There is some fluid around the knee. Doctor gave me some anti-inflamatory pills and again, better but still some swelling. I am hesitate to work out as it still bothers me.
While at the doctors office, the doctor(who I have never been to before) went on a rant about my weight. Look, does he not think I can see in the mirror? I mean, I know he probably thought he was doing me a favor and giving me a reality check, and yes at some level I suppose I needed it. But fact is, he assumed I was this lazy slob ( ok I just inserted the slob part) He assumed I was lazy, told me I needed to start working out. This man had no idea that I do work out, Typical week for me is 4-5 days a week at least a hour a day.
I know I can do more, but the assumption that I am lazy bothered me. I must work hard to get results- I get that - and yes do I slack some - YES! I do.
But his judgement just from my appearance bothered me. In a way, it MAY have actually been the best thing because it has fueled me. Unfortunately, I have to be careful with this darn knee of mine... but I am determined to get going in the right direction this time.

First time in a long time, this feels good.

    I'm happy that he fueled you up to get back on track and join us in the new season of BLC, but I agree with RINSKY--his lack of 'bedside manner' was upsetting. Take are of you knee and do what you can while it is healing--maybe some water exercise? Or just things that don't irritate it as much, such as cycling, and the elliptical and or upper body exercise is good too. My hubby's knees are BOTH bad, so I know what you mean (his DR has said he needs DOUBLE knee replacements, but he is dragging his feet and delaying it as long as he can, hoping maybe he can avoid it, if he gets the weight off. I really have a good feeling about this season, & think we are going to be seeing better results this time. We are MAKING IT HAPPEN in 2013!!!

    Wow! While it may have fueled the spark in you again, that DR sucks. Gotta love assumptions. Take care of your knee and let's show him :)
