Breaking Through My Plateau, How I Did It

Sunday, November 18, 2012

Wow, when I realized that the last time I had tracked my weight it was a month ago my first reaction was wow - it took this long? But when you've followed my story, especially my lack of mobility and struggles with proper diet, it's not that hard to see why it took me a month before the scale resumed it's downward march.


There to are two things that happened which were key to making this possible. First was having my knee replaced on Nov 6th - which has already increased my mobility and activity level. The second thing was my post knee surgery diet where I eat two to four 6oz Dannon Lite Yogurt along with my protein shaket and high fiber or protein bars. I have maximized protein since surgery and now have a more regular eating pattern which seems to have really helped my energy level.

The side benefit to all of this is that I can tell I am gaining muscle and losing inches. I hope to update my measurements later this week. As for my knee recovery, it has been painful - but worth it. According to my in-home physical therapist and nurse, I am ahead of schedule, but need to temper that so as not to become overconfident in my ability to do things. That was all too evident today as I sat in ER this afternoon while my Medical Team adjusted my pain meds to offer at least bareable relief. Home now for a couple hours, that relief is kicking in and I am off to relax this Sunday night away.

I hope that this note finds each of you at the end of a great week and the be beginning of a week filled with blessings beyond your wildest imagination. Your friend - "Sprink"
