I CAN Overcome This Problem
Friday, January 19, 2018
I am newly arrived to the world of weight maintenance. I have a "drop" foot incurred during a very recent surgery. The surgery was abdominal, but a nerve to my leg/foot got touched somewhere in the process. I am slowly recovering my energy levels. A drop foot means I cannot walk/run in heel/toe fashion. My foot flops. I read a blog from the "At Goal & Maintaining + Transition to Maintenance" Spark Team which elaborated the challenges of maintaining. The comments were super enlightening. The general opinion was that maintaining was tougher than losing weight.
I dearly want to maintain the "new me" who is 40 pounds lighter. I thought, "What CAN I do with this foot problem? I can do spinning classes for aerobics and recovery!" I've never spun before, nary a twirl. I CAN do this much for my aerobics now. I CAN do this and I CAN recover. What else CAN I do? Stay tuned.
