Lost some more weight even more LOL if I weigh without the shoes & brace & clothes. OMG they shoe brace & my clothes weighed 8 lbs what a bummer! Note to self to purchase some light cotton clothes. No more heavy clothes. Then maybe the weight of my clothes helps me loose the weight who know. LOL

We are in the last stages of preparing for the trip to Texas coast for the week. First vacation we have had since the guys were little boys. Packed up all the clothes, shoes. Have ice chest ready to fill and a shade tent thingie to set up on the beach so I don't burn and my spray on sunscreen. Last time I went with the family for hubby's sister to Corpus Christus area. This time we are going to Galveston.

This trip was planned before I had my hospital trip in Decemeber and I thought I wouldn't get to go. That I would be able to make that trip. .

Now I am walking with the cane and without some. I only wear the brace when I leave the house. Doctor said it was good for me to not use it in the house to help strengten the muscle in the back of my leg. My foot is lifting up on its own now. I thought I would be dragging it forever.

NEVER GIVE UP HOPE. even when you think it is impossible! In January coming home from the hospital was a challenge & I was scared to death. I thought I would be dependant on others forever. Three months have made a difference! Just keep trying does too!

    Congrats on all your progress with your leg! If I could weigh naked at the drs to not have the clothes add weight I would lol!
    Hope you have great fun on your trip!

    I have cerebral palsy on my entire right side. My right foot drops & trips me up sometimes, but I dont have to wear a brace. You might check with your dr, there is a newer item that you wear on your knee that kinda helps move that leg, so that you dont have to wear a brace at all. its electronic & your leg has to respond to the nerve impulses. That may help you more.

    Good luck!

    Glad things are working out for you. Yes, lighter clothes can make a difference. Jeans are heavy and even tho I wear them a lot, I make sure I don't have them on on Wed. when I weigh in at Weight Watchers. Have a great day and a good weekend.
