Let's just put it out there. I gained 9 pounds in the 9 months I was in a boot. My goodness, did I not learn anything at all about how the weight goes ONTO the body the first time around? I am extremely disappointed in myself but today is a new day.
The boot came off right before we had to pack up to see my mother in-law so my husband went for a walk with me twice while we were there. I can't go very fast yet, nor can I go very far but it felt SO GOOD to get out there and sweat! Today I tracked my calories and did a good job of packing nutritious snacks since I knew I would be gone most of the day.
I go back in August to the doctor for a re-evaluation. He released me for short exercise activities and asked me to keep track of what hurts and what doesn't. So far flip flops are not my friend, neither are shopping carts. No major pain, haven't even taken an ibuprofen. Keeping my chin up and praying this is the end of the ankle issues!
