Geeze, where should start?
I guess I just gave up last May, mostly due to pain. What I thought was a mere plantar fasciitis, turned out to be a heal bursitis that just didn't want to heal. I decided to get medical help when I just couldn't put any weight on my foot one night. Then I got scare that if a fire was to start in the middle of the night, I would just be incapable of getting out on my own and worst, wouldn't be able to help my 90 year old mother to escape.
So I consulted a podiatrist and got prescribed ortheses to correct my feet alignment. But the pain just didn't stop in a jiff, it took weeks for my bursitis to get better. Still, it is not yet completely healed, as I still have some sharp pain sometimes.
As a result of all this, I wasn't able to exercise at all, since just doing my work shift took every once of energy I had to cope with the pain. And of course, the weight creeped up on me, no surprise there.
I am not completely healed yet, (maybe it will never heal completely either), but I just can't keep my head in the sand and let the weight go up any longer. It just not is an option because the more I weigh the more the problem will increase.
So, sparkers, I can't promise a perfect path to shedding weight, but I can solemnly pledge to do my absolute best to eat sensibly and do a little exercise everyday, in order to get moving again and lessen the pain.
Anyone out there still reading this, thank you for your friendship and I shall share my progress and yours regularly from now on.
Have a great week.
