July 9, 2015 and starting from square 230.

Thursday, July 09, 2015

Today is July 9th 2015. I have not posted in over a year! I have regained all my weight lost. Due to a knee injury, I am even more behind physically than I have been in my entire life, and I am miserable.
But, SparkPeople; the site, the friends, the articles, the posts all make me smile!
Lessons learned: 1.) When you don't use it, you lose it! I currently am taking a yoga class where I cannot bend or hold a pose as I have lost all balance and strength due to not properly using my left leg for 6 months. It is scary how fast we lose capability.
2.) My butt exploded over night! I have been taking body measurements almost my entire teen-to-adult life, and as I have gained weight (pregnancy included) I would gain parts of inches over time, but this last 6 months I gained 4-full-bleeping-inches around my glutious-maximus. I am horrified! What has happened to me?
3.) Feeling sorry for myself just makes the binging easier, not the losing.
4.) Sleep is more important than morning workouts.
5.) I just want to be healthy. I know how to do it, I just can't stay focused with my current job and commuting.
So, today, I am back in the training, concentrating, planning, and doing mode!
Help me SparkPeople! You are the one positive force in my life right now.
Thank you!

    Hey, glad to see you're here to check in! That is a very healthy step in th right direction. Sorry to hear about the knee injury - that sounds like a major change /adjustment to go through. There are actually some really good chair workout videos for upper body,etc. - not sure if those would work for you but I've found them to be great on days where I can't tolerate much jumping around, etc. good luck, keep us posted! We can do this - One day as a time :)

    Welcome back! It may be a cliche, but it's also true - it's not how many times you fall, it's how many times you get up! Congrats on getting up! emoticon

    Oh Lovey, we have all been there!

    I started again just by logging in on a daily basis and reviewing my goal board. Even if you do nothing else, then do that on a daily basis and the rest will follow.

    Big, big hugs and well done for logging in and blogging.

    Lots of love
