Thank you so much! I have such a hard time getting on to post anything, so I'm sorry it took me a bit to reply to you two. I'm going to look up the exercises I can do while in bed. I have to spend 2-3 days completely off my foot and my bedroom is upstairs, so I'll basically be living in my room for a couple days :) I did get one of those little ekneelers tho! The kind you put your knee on & push with the other foot. Once I'm allowed up I plan on taking walks/scoots outside w/ my parents & son.
I'm on day 4 of a low-carb diet and so far I've lost about 4lbs! I'm sure they'll weigh me on Wednesday before my surgery, so I'll see how accurate my scale is.
Have a wonderful week!!
Welcome back! You don't have to give up exercising completely. There are some really good exercises on SP that are done from a chair. You will not have to use your feet at all.

Welcome back! Hopefully after your foot surgeries you will be able to get back on the bicycle. Gook luck!

Hi! My name is Jennifer and I'm rejoining SparkPeople after a few years away. I had some success when I used it about 4 years ago, and life just got in the way so I strayed from it. I had a beautiful baby boy in December and then turned 30 in April. I'm at the heaviest I can ever remember being - 265! I'm having foot surgery next week, and then again 3 weeks later, which means I wont be able to really exercise for a little while. I'm hoping that cutting out carbs and eating more fruits & veggies will help jump start my journey. I make my son's food - fresh fruits, veggies & meats...so I know right now he eats better than I do! HaHa!
My favorite form of exercise is riding my bike. Two summers ago I would ride 25-30 miles a day, about 3 days a week. Last year my husband & I bought a house that needed more work than we had anticipated, so I didn't get to ride at all. This summer I haven't gotten to ride very much either, because my son isn't old enough to go on long rides in the trailer yet. I try to get us out for walks, but because of my foot pain we don't go very far.
I'm looking forward to a healthier me and reacquainting myself with the excellent resources that SparkPeople offers.
