Once and For All!

6/14/13 Day 1 - I've been overweight since the age of 11. I gained 25 pounds as a kid in the 5th grade when my parents divorced. 7 years of stress and unhappiness followed and overeating became a lifelong habit and way to cure stress and numb pain...so I thought. All along it only created more. Now I find myself at 52, at my highest weight ever. I need to do this for me first and for my wonderful family so I am healthy and there for them. I'm ready, I can do this...once and for all!

Hi Teri! I'm so happy that you're feeling encouraged. I did really good today, except for some buttered popcorn tonight that put me over the top of my fat anyway! Tomorrow I hope I can stay away from all the junk we have in the house! I lost 2# last week, so I know that I better try harder to keep that off. As far as my knee, it's really good while the 2nd cortisone shot is still working so heavenly. Awwww, it feels so good, but I still know that something's wrong when I do too much, so I try to not be too hard on it. My surgery for the total replacement is scheduled for Dec. 15th, so I'm so looking forward to getting that over with and getting on to a better life without that knee pain. I hope that all your pains here and there are under control and that life is treating you real good in all ways! As far as the cold, there's supposed to be a break of it coming up this weekend, so that's making everybody happy. My DH and DS each have cab tractors, which they didn't used to have for a main feeding tractor, so this is so heavenly for them to have heat and not to get so bitterly cold as other winters! The summertime is luscious too, with the A/C! It makes us all happy!
Hugs to you, my dear sweet friend,
Karen
ps. I had my pre-op appt. today and tomorrow is a P/T appt. and also a Joint Replacement class too, so this knee situation is moving right along! WooHoo!!
