Tammy, I always advise people to work carefully with their Dr's for developing a recovery plan (exercising). I learned the hard way after breaking a bone in my ankle that rushing the recovery process will only slow your recovery down. Your Doctor will be happy that you are taking an active role in the recovery process.

I also get depressed and anxious when I'm injured and unable to train so I have learned which exercise programs are safest for me while recovering and use those to ease both issues (I have a long history of back injuries).

Good luck with your recovery process and your fitness goals - Oh and WELCOME to team Dog Lovers!!! emoticon emoticon

As the others have said, tracking food and fitness is important. It really worked for me and altho I have met my goal, I am still doing it. Keeps me honest with myself.

Go slow at first, this didn't happen overnight, you can afford a few days to get to know yourself. Start logging EVERY bite you eat, EVERy sip you drink. Don't even worry about dieting. Figure out how many calories you are taking in during your normal life. You will quickly see patterns. Once you know what is going on, you can make small changes, changes you can live with. Your doctor will tell you what kind of exercising you can do. I think biking is good therapy for torn ACLs. All you have to do is burn more calories than you eat and you should lose weight.

Welcom on board Tammy! My suggestion is to try out all the different things on this site the trackers, read all the articles and pay attention to what others do. It seems like I have no new ideas but the present ones are so awesome I just spend time on here and track everything. Good luck as you move forward. There are smarter people than me who will come up with suggestions for your particular concerns. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Welcome to the team Tammy! Start small, especially since you just had surgery. Check out the articles on emotional eating. I am also an emotional eater and it is a constant struggle. My bad time is at night. I have a rule that I have to wait 15 minutes to eat anything. I usually find I'm not really hungry and end up getting involved in doing something else and forget about eating. You can do this. SP is the place to meet your goals! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I have been on this site for awhile now but haven't really accessed it the way I should have. I just had a surgery for torn acl and meniscus 2 days ago and would like some ideas on what I should be doing to get into shape again. I am very much an emotional eater and get very down on myself with any type of setback. I have always been my own worst enemy which I am sure many of you can relate to:) I would appreciate any and all suggestions to help me reach my goals!
