First Blog aka Hanging in there
Tuesday, May 26, 2009
Well, this is my first blog on this site. Actually, this is my first blog ever.
I am so happy with my weight loss that I had to share! I can't believe I have made it this far and have actually lost 45 pounds!! I never thought I would be able to make it when I realized how much I had to loose. But now I can see that it is possible and it is really sinking in that I can do this! I can go all the way! I have lost from a size 24 pant being tight, down to a size 18 being loose! I havent worn a size 18 in years!
Last week I feel down my front steps and really hurt my ankle and the outside of my lower leg. We thought is was broken, as the pop it made when I fell could be heard on the other side of our 2 acre yard. I went to the emergency room and thank goodness it wasn't broken! I went to my regular Dr. the next day, and he said I had torn all three ligaments in my lower ankle and probably torn, or at least severely stretched the ligaments just above my ankle and pulled and injured the muscle all the way up the outside of my leg from my ankle to my knee.
I figured that this was the end of my weight loss for a long time. I was really worried that I would gain weight back because of this. But to my amazement, and due to being extremely careful with calories, I have managed not only to not gain, but to actually continue to loose. I am really surprised!
Anyway, just wanted to share my good mood this morning!
