9 Months Since Broke Leg.. Struggling Daily Still..

Thursday, October 08, 2015

Happy Thursday!!

So it's been over 7 months since I blogged or checked in.. My weight has stayed consistent around 245 to 249. I've noticed that for the past 2 years I've remained in the 240's range..

Here's the crazy part.. So we all know that losing weight is eating your vegetables, lean protein, water intake & exercise yet I still remain FAT, OVERWEIGHT!!!! Why can't I get the method down, why can't I get myself together??

I absolutely hate the weight that I'm at.. Yet, I still want to eat all of the foods that I know are HORRIBLE!!! I literally ate a slice of cake & pizza today before writing this blog... I've been working on increasing my water intake.

Part of me fears going back to the gym, I fear what my broken leg can handle now.. I still haven't worn heals in 9 months.. I just feel like I'm in such a rut. emoticon

emoticon It's so crazy that we go thru this constant circle of feeling bad & that just causes us to want to eat more, then the circle just continues.. I'm just tired of feeling like this.. I refuse to do surgery but sometimes I just wish there was a MAGIC PILL that would just take my fat rolls away!!

I just needed to share my feelings..

    Wonder if you could start out with some water exercises first so as not to stress your joints. I think it is great that you haven't gained since breaking your leg. So you get extra credit for that, for sure! I agree with what others have said about checking with your doctor to get guidance on where to start out with your exercise routine. emoticon

    AS far as High jheels I ruined my knees years ago for wearing magic pills...just determination that you can do it. emoticon Maybe just walking will help...can hurt much walking!

    Good Luck!

    Lots of people in the same boat here. Getting back to the gym might give you that boost to burn more calories after those pesky nibbles of emoticon & emoticon .
    As for wearing heels, I've just about given up that practice--and I could use the height!

    I hope you are able to get back to the gym, getting up and moving may help you feel better. But what really struck me while reading your blog was the underlying positive aspect -- after 9 months of dealing with a broken leg, you have maintained your current weight. MAINTAINED, not gained -- Yea!!!

    Sure, it is not where you want to be. But hurray for not putting any more weight on over the last stressful year! That really is impressive, you clearly were doing something right. Give it some thought, decide on your next course of action. Soon you will break out of that plateau...

    I could use that same pill. I am fighting the same battle as you are. Cyber hugs.... emoticon

    The very best to you. Life is tough for many of us. But, if you really want it, it's out there for you. Unfortunately, the journey is a tough one.

    So sorry girl... and pre-diabetes too? listen to your body.. there are a lot of ways to exercise using weight for the upper body and exercise to your comfort for the lower body. Even a stationary bike can help. The older modes l can be brought for a little of nothing. Food is a big problem for me. I decided to stay away from sweets unless I hand make my own treats. Pizza well I allow it. I only buy the ones that are individual packaged that two per package. Out of sight out of mind. Be kind and be patient t yourself. Healing can take some time especially if you are pre-diabetic. Don't get in the head game with what could be. Some times you have to deal with what is at the moment. 1200 is very low but we all know hat we can do. me I could never eat that few calories. Hang in there and do not give up. Find what will work for you. Physical therapy could help greatly. It could help with healing and strength.

    It was good to hear from you but I wish things were going better. I can relate. I am not pushing myself hard enough. I have to do better. emoticon

    Hang in there! It took me over 2 years to learn here and a Dr warning me I'd need more meds to finally get it together. But its never easy. Just don't give up! And what really helped me was cleaning out my kitchen. It really does work. emoticon

    ((hugs)) I don't have any super helpful advice, but I can tell you that you aren't alone. It seems like no matter how hard I try, I always fall off the bandwagon at some point. I haven't seen "Onederland" since I was 15.

    Keep your chin up and keep pushing forward. I think those of us who keep getting back up and dusting ourselves off every time we fall are working harder and being braver than the people who don't struggle with food, anyway! You *can* do this, no matter how many times it takes. One day, if we all keep pushing toward our goals, it's going to stick :).

    Hang in there! I suggest going to the gym and test out your leg. Be slow and don't overdo it, but see what you can handle! You've got to start somewhere!

    I hope you get back to the gym. Remember slow and steady wins the race. I don't think anyone out there doesn't slip up. Heck, I love my candy - I do slip and catch myself and allow it to happen just not to reckless abandon.

    Hang in there and keep pushing.

    (((HUGS))) What physical activity has your Dr. cleared you to do? I'd then build my activity around that and go from there.

    Glad you blogged! That's a good start.
