=============
A lot has happened since 2/13. Some good, some bad and some ugly. I won't get into everything here, suffice to say I was very negatively impacted. On top of still having to use a cane the motivation was GONE. ok .. trying not to be a whiner ... will be back on track ... WILL BE BACK ON TRACK! Thanks for the love!
========================================
=============Not a lot new, still trying to get some routine back. Complicated by my husband retiring and a host of attendant changes. I have been focusing on healthy eating, now need to buckle down! ==========================================
===========almost 2 months out from surgery, and I'm on a cane, full weight bearing and walking fairly well. Now the issue is my other hip. Which my surgeon has already said will need replacement at some point. Yeah me!
========================================
=============On 10 Oct '12 I underwent Total Hip Replacement surgery on my right hip. It is going into my 4th week post surgery. I am partial weight-bearing. This means using a walker! Prognosis is good ....

Hit 51 in Feb '12 .. and things are pretty much the same. I have maintained the weight loss to date .. but am stuck hovering around 200 ... I have been consistently going to the Y 2 - 3 times per week. Just need to increase the time spent there.

I'm the BIG 50! Things are not shaking out the way I wanted. Seems my weight loss journey is fraught with perils! I've injured myself .. and now am looking at a long road to recovery. Dr told me running is not a good choice for me ... dagnabit!!

I have been unable to walk or do any exercise involving my legs/hips for the last 8 months with any regularity. I'm seeing an intergrative physician and I'm getting better slowly. I'm still keeping my nutrition fairly good ... not regaining weight.

I'm not sure what the future holds .. but I'm a SPARKIE FOR LIFE!! I'm in it to lose it!! lol

emoticon V, was so glad to see a message from you.. I have made a lot of progress this past summer and am looking forward to pressing through this winter. (Praying I will not give up any ground or victories like I did last winter when I stopped leaving the house..) Losing 50 lbs this year will help [especially, since I've got nicer clothes to wear now].. no longer have to live in my stretch pants. emoticon Though on the other hand, they are so baggy on me, I love pulling into them.. emoticon

I hope you have a BETTER [stress free] Fall & Winter.. don't let those grey skies get to you!!! AND avoid that Halloween candy and Holliday feasts.. gee, that might make for some new kinds of stress ... well, you hang in here, we can get through it together.. just keep being encouraged by reading the success stories on here, if they can do it we can too! emoticon

Things are pretty good, V. DH just had another cancer-free MRI! My baby left for college in August. My middle one left for law school. I am re-energized and motivated again. I understand what you mean about having DH around all the time. What a mind-bender after years of them going off to work. I hope things work out with the hip surgery. I know what an incredible difference that can make. How is the hip that you had replaced?
