Physical activity has been a major tool in my weight loss trek and unfortunately all my gym time was eliminated 2 weeks ago.
I had torn ligaments in my left ankle. I don't know when or how just that my ankle hurt one day after the gym and I continued to exercise the following 2 days.
After several visits to the doctors and 2 misdiagnosis, the Podiatrists finally informed me I would spend 2 months in a hard cast, icing the back of my knee 4 times a day, keeping it elevated and plenty of rest.
The ride home was filled with negative thoughts about the possibility of gaining some of my weight back.
But I hadn't lost my weight due to just physical activity. I realized I would have to be more aware of my calories and hope to just maintain my current weight for the next 2 months.
So yes the injury is a setback but I do have some good news.
Being overweight brings several aliment's and for the past 6 years I've been taking blood pressure medicine. On a recent doctor visit I purposely didn't take my little pill to see what my true BP was. 127 over 89.
I just need the OK from my Doc to stop taking that little pill. I won't miss it.
Three weeks ago I weighed in at 343.5 pounds and my current weight is 331.5 ... 12 more pounds for a total of 111 pounds lost from my starting weight of 442. I broke the century mark! And proud to say 3 of those pounds were lost after the cast was put on.
Feeling great! God is good!
