Day 12 - I am so grateful for SP! I maintained a still too heavy but acceptable weight loss for a couple of years. Then this year I gained almost 20 lbs between March and August. I had cataract surgery in February - the plan had been that left eye first, then right eye 2 weeks later. Well, let me tell you that is not at all what happened. Left eye - great result 20/20 for the first time since I was a little kid & maybe not then. However, the steroids used for healing caused my eye pressure to skyrocket. I already have glaucoma , so this was not something to take lightly. Several months later my eye pressure is back to "my normal" & finally I can have the right eye done. The doctor had me use only one steroid instead of two so my eye pressures didn't go up. It has taken longer to heal though. I don't think of myself as an emotional eater, but clearly I was eating up my frustration. Also most of that time I was very limited as to exercise.
I'm going to lose the weight I gained and then work to my goal weight. I'm done with excuses. I can do this!
