Great News! I don't need surgery and lost some weight and can have wine! What a marvelous day!

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

Seriously, I went to see the specialist, and I don't have to have surgery on my ankle. I still can't lift my foot up, but I got a hard cast for a few weeks, then a lace-up ankle thingy. I will get physical therapy, depending on how the ankle is doing. I am so elated!!!!

I also finally made the scale budge, but that may be because I am eating healthier and sweating buckets from the crutches. In any case, I'm almost down to 161, and I can feel it in my girth. But, who cares? I like how I'm eating and can't wait to get back to the gym. The doctor said he would evaluate if I could jog later. He wasn't making any promises. :(

But the greatest news is that the doctor told me I could have a glass of wine with my pain meds. Mwa ha ha. Well, I got most of my goals done for the day. I just have to take a short nap and work on an educational for my Union. That should take all night.

Anyway, I am so happy!

    So glad you don't need surgery, and so impressed that you are being as active as possible through your injury. Many people would use the excuse to sit around with their feet up! And happy for you that your perseverance was rewarded with a lost pound. :-) You really earned that one!

    I really care that you are achieving your health goals. emoticon Make sure that that one glass of wine does not lead to more especially while you are on pain pills.

I am so happy for you.
