View Full Version : AWOL, checking in

Hi everyone,

I had an accident on the 9th and burned my foot seriously, I've been on bed rest and obviously unable to exercise. I was able to finish my classes except for one and my foot is healing but I still have a significant amount of pain and can't wear a shoe on that foot. I've even been told to add significant carbs back into my diet and increase my calories. I weighed myself recently and freaked out when I'd gone from 203 to 211, but then I started taking a diuretic again and within a few days was right back to 203. So, at least I haven't gained weight. I am however depressed a bit because I was losing 10-12 pounds per month and I'm frustrated to not be in onederland today.

However, my new goal is to be in onederland and off crutches (maybe with a cane?) for our mexico vacation (and able to swim) by 1/9.

I'll be back around the new year - visiting family with no internet access.

Merry Christmas, Weeb! Take care of yourself while you're healing. I'm jealous of a Mexico vacation in the winter! :)

We've been missing you, Weeb. I know that this was such a hard time of year for this to happen and I hope you heal soon and hop back into the groove.

Hope you are able to enjoy your vacation.

Best Wishes and Happy Holidays!

I'm so sorry to hear about your accident, I'll be praying for a full and speedy recovery. :hug:

I'm also sorry that you're not where you'd hoped to be weight wise right now, but you've been doing an amazing job - this is just a temporary slow down - one month out of the rest of your life.

Enjoy your vacation!

Weeb, so sorry to hear of your accident! Just focus on eating healthy and getting well, okay? You know you can lose the weight when you are healed. :hug:

Thanks everyone. Our anniversary was yesterday and we hung out with some family and played cards. :)

today I've been sleeping in the easy chair waiting for midnight so I could go to bed but I don't think I'm going to make it. How embarrassing!
