A New Day

Thursday, March 12, 2020

Facts: I started my journey (this time around) at 236. I made it to Onderland and was floating around the mid 190's. Then my hip dislocated and i was just in incredible pain for a week prior to my surgery to repair (replace again) the hip. I couldn't eat. Then surgery, and began to eat again, but very small amounts. Got home from Rehab yesterday and ate two big meals. And weighed myself this AM: 188. Two pounds away from my 50 lb lost mark. I am at dad's house and need to try to stick to my goals---it is so easy to overeat here. But the fact that there are not that many snacks around is a good thing. I just need to watch my serving sizes at meals and make wise choices if we eat out.

I am going to start tracking again. i am not sure what numbers to aim for. Probably still will end up somewhere around 1200 calories/day....although I have been eating less than that.

My PT (Physical Therapist) in the Rehab is a friend and she worked hard for two weeks to get me to get me motivated to care about myself and my appearance more. She said I should put makeup on every morning.....whether I am going anywhere or not. And to shower whether or not I need one. I know she is right. I know she would be appalled if she knew there are days when I do not dress at all....just stay in PJ 's all day. The vast majority of the time, I do not see anyone so it is hard to motivate myself. But she is right. I should make showering and makeup part of my morning ritual and that way if someone drops by, i would be ready.

Pain is a resolution killer.
Pain is a motivation thief.
Pain is a desire robber.
Pain is an intention squasher.
