Another dive? Oh, NO!

Saturday, June 23, 2012

I had the surgery in December. I weighed less than I have in so long I can't even remember. The doctor said I could do anything I wanted exercise wise after two weeks. When I went back for my one week appointment the PA suggested that I wait two more weeks, then I saw the NP who added another 2 weeks before exercising. (I should have just listened to the doctor!) Without realizing it, I got discouraged and started to---yah, you know-EAT JUNK!!!! Between discouragement and sugar cravings, I gained 30 pounds. I was too embarrassed to face myself let alone anyone else. This "failure" was devastating! I just couldn't regroup. I didn't even want to... now, that's scary.

10 days ago, June 14th, I finally was motivated enough to try again once more. I keep frustrating as that is..but at least I am still willing to work at it. I know that eventually I will live a healthy lifestyle. This time I am taking it one day at a time. I am recording everything that goes in my mouth and I am exercising more than normal. It's feeling good. I know these are the tools to success. Here I go again!
