Hanging in there

Sunday, November 20, 2016

I've been successful with logging my foods. So far I lost 3 lbs since surgery. Spending almost a month in bed and then sitting on my butt for another month made me gain 9 lbs. It's still not possible to do the exercises I like and know how to do. My foot is swollen quite a bit and the incisions are still draining. It's so hard to be patient. I want to do yoga, water aerobic, dance, take walks and drive again. When is that going to happen?

    With my back pain i am in the same boat right now. So many things i can't do. I am going to look for a physiotherapist to help me with the right exercises.

    I do little chair exercises. I need to build up my muscles and the motivation is not there to do it on my own.

    Hugs. I can imagine how frustrating it is. Sorry that the wounds are still draining. What chair exercises can you do? I know those are not exciting but better than nothing. Since you have lost 3 pounds tells me you are doing the right thing.
