Might be down but not out
Monday, February 09, 2015
Last Thursday I took a spill at work and was very lucky I landed on my butt and did not hurt my knees. However, hopefully all I did was bruise my hip and bottom side. I cannot hardly move or walk. I have a doctor appointment on Wednesday to see exactly what damage I did to myself.
Other good things--I was inside the building. Had my phone with me so I could call for assistance...I tried to get up, but since my knees are still on the new side, I could not bear weight on them to pull myself up. I have to say I was embarrassed that I had to have two guys pull me up by my arms. But so fortunate that I was able to at least move some with my canes. I still am not sure what damage I have done, but at least I can walk slow with my canes and/or walker.
So, now I am more determined than ever to get this excess weight off. I was so grateful that I was not at the high weight I once was and have fallen. But still humbled that I had to have assistance to get up and so wishing I was at a size where I could have gotten up myself.
I am following my food plan. Happy to be able to be back online and catching up with Sparkpeople.
Life is good.
