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

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!
