Starting over. I have gain all my weight back plus 15 more. It has been a tough four years. I had lost 118 pounds. Then I decided to have a pain implant put in my back to help me manage my pain. I was exercising up to 2 hours a day, but my back and leg pain was hard to deal with. The surgery went stellar. I was on cloud nine. Two months later I found I had developed a serious infection around the implant and it spread up my spine. I was in the hospital for weeks. The doctors put me on a high calorie diet to help put nutrients the infection was eating up. I gained 28 pounds. It was the beginning of the end of my accomplishments. It was months of trying to get back on my feet. I started going down hill with my pain. It became hard to move. I became depressed and emotionally ate pounds back on. Seven months later I loss my sister unexpected. I was crushed. She was the last of my siblings. She was my go to girl, my closest friend, and we were as close as sister could be. For the next two year it was a lot of grief. I couldn't deal with it. I prayed for comfort, but couldn't let GOD comfort me. I still have days that I cry. My weigh has gotten so out of control that it is adding to my pain. I have some kind of nerve problem that is now affecting my whole body. I can't stand more than a few seconds. I went from walking 5k's to barely being able to cross the room. I have to use a wheelchair if I go out. For a long time I wouldn't go outside of the house for months at a time. I am working on that.
Now it is time for me to wake up. My husband has gained weight as well. He received a bad report from his check-up. I had a talk with my husband about his health and mine. I told him we really needed to get started back to a healthy way of life or it might be the end of us if we don't. So tonight I set up my nutritional menu for tomorrow. I told my husband not to bring home anymore junk or fast food. He agreed to it this time. His bad report was an eye opener for him. Just pray for us. We really need it. Happy to be back. I am ready for it finally!
