I'm Back!!!

Monday, August 18, 2008

This has been a long journey. One that has not been without bumps in the road. I lost a total of 25 lbs since I started my journey. I felt good, I felt secure. I'd come a long way. It was time to attack another evil in my life. SMOKING!! I have been successful with this also.....over 100 days smoke free as of this posting. I feel REAL good about that accomplishment. I have had some times where I wanted the smoke, but I held on tight and let the urge pass. I think I'll be successful this time. I will not smoke again.

But alas, along comes one of those bumps in the road. I've gained back 9 lbs. I guess I could count myself lucky. In past attempts to give up the evil cigs, I have gained 15 to 20 lbs in this time frame of over 3 months.

Bump in the road # 2 I have recently discovered that I have been walking around on a fractured foot for 3 yrs. Yes 3 yrs. you read that right. So Now I'm stuck unable to exercise as I like. No weight on the bum foot.

So I have sat here for the last few weeks feeling sorry for myself. BOOHOO BOOHOO!! What am I going to do? This has the potential to get in the way of some very important plans I have for the end of September. Now I'm really freakin'. I'm fat, I cant walk, can't drive. What's a girl to do.........Well just sit and feel sorry for yourself some more Tracey!!! I think not!!!

Saturday I had an appointment with my foot doc. things are coming along. My foot is healing. Only 4 more weeks in this cast. YES that leaves 2 weeks after that until my trip. I'll be back in business!!!

So Now what do I do? I have 6 weeks to bring this back around. I woke this morning with a new since of motivation. I have 9 lbs to lose to get back to where I was. I have put myself BACK on the WW program. I am back to writing in my journal everyday. I'm still not smoking. I will find some sort of exercise to do to help burn and tone. I like my cardio, but I can't do that right now. So I'll stick to my eating plan and try some strength training (sitting of course). Wish me luck cuz.............

I'M BACK!!!!!

    Tracey, sorry I didn't see this sooner. There is never any doubt in our minds that you can and will do the right thing. Doesn't it suck that sometimes it takes a little longer to see that message yourself? Keep your chin up and keep trying... Can't wait until PF!
