Frustrations- Time for Restart!

Monday, November 28, 2011

I lost 30 pounds in 7 months, working as a hostess walking 15-30,000 steps a day. I was feeling great.

I was doing really well, then I tore the mensicus in my knee. Don't have insurance, can't afford surgery, so just have to deal with it.

I had to quit my job, I was in so much pain, that I couldn't even handle 4 hour shifts anymore, left alone 12 hour ones. My knee got so swollen and painful, sometimes just give out on me.

I have found a better paying job, and it is much easier on my knee, but I am not as active. I need to find the happy medium.

I got into quite a depression about my knee, not feeling well, not being able to work out like I want, and starting to see the pounds creep back up.

I have been dealing with some nasty headaches and some migraines for 3 weeks, I was sick all last week in bed, ( and to top it off, my birthday was Friday). Hubby has been wonderful and supportive! I am quite lucky and blessed to have in my life, and in my corner.

I decided enough is enough! I reset my ticker, took all my measurements and kick starting myself back in the right direction!

I am going to take the HCG drops, the diet is similiar to what I ate, when I had gastric bypass surgery, in 2001, so I know that I can do it. I am hoping that this is the morale booster that I need to get me going again in the right direction. Stop being so laid back about things.

I ordered the new Counrty Dance 3 for the Wii, I have always wanted to line dance, and this is a good way to learn and burn calories and not look like a fool in public!

I did one of my Walk with Leslie dvds tonight, just have to be careful with my knee. So I am hoping that these will work and not be too strenuous.

Hubby has told me over and over he is my number one supporter and cheerleader, and we should have found him a cheerleader outfit at Halloween so he can wear it for me! I LOVE HIM SO MUCH!

Well, that's why I haven't been around much lately. Thanks for listening to me!

    Congrats on the weight loss, and sorry about the pain issues. It is absolutely wonderful how your husband is such a supporter! You are so very lucky in that department.

    Take it easy on your knee and more importantly do not over due it. Sounds like the court job is working out for you and though you are not getting in your steps there are amazing exercises you can do from a desk.

    You will be in my prayers! Ps, you will have to let me know about the Wii game. I was thinking of getting one too! :)

    Sounds like you have a wonderful plan in place. You might try swimming if you can in your area. It might help to strength your knee and the rest of your body. You are very lucky to have your own cheerleader! Good luck on your journey!
