All Mine

I am a non-smoking, non-drinking vegetarian. My husband and I try to stick to organic foods (we're at about the 70% margin right now) and choose local whenever possible.

My weight has ALWAYS fluctuated within a 20 pound range since I was a teen. I was doing a good job of maintaining myself between a 160 (summer) and 155 (winter) weight for almost 5 years until I severed my left ACL in addition to severly damaging my cartilage in an Ultimate Frisbee game in October 2011. ...
I am a non-smoking, non-drinking vegetarian. My husband and I try to stick to organic foods (we're at about the 70% margin right now) and choose local whenever possible.

My weight has ALWAYS fluctuated within a 20 pound range since I was a teen. I was doing a good job of maintaining myself between a 160 (summer) and 155 (winter) weight for almost 5 years until I severed my left ACL in addition to severly damaging my cartilage in an Ultimate Frisbee game in October 2011. Rehabilitatiion from this knee injury and then subsequently after surgery in May 2012 has been long, painful and frustrating. I haven't been able to enjoy the level of activity that I've been accostomed to and have caught myself wallowing is self pitty on quite a few occasions, especially as the pounds have crept on.

I suffered from sever self conciousness and self hate issues as a teenager and into early adult hood. Over time and with help my self perception has softened and I've been able to be more comfortable with my body. In the last few years I've even been able to wear tank tops! I'm working up to shorts now from capris. I still have a really harsh super-ego but it doesn't make my life as absolutely misserable as it used to be. When my weight starts to go up I start to throw the baggy sweaters on again, even in 30*C heat, and I know it's time to kick myself in the but. I reached that point this summer.

I know my knee will never be the same again, but I don't want this to keep me from enjoying an active lifestyle. I want to keep pushing myself through the pain as much as possible as that's the only way I'll get back to a semblance of normalcy. It's also the only way that I'm going to be able to continue to maintain my weight and continue to accept myself without drastic dietary changes which I am just not willing to commit to.
