Still struggling

Friday, August 24, 2012

I had good intentions in July of getting back into the swing of things on here to try and get my weight back under control to help my overall health as I deal with this disease...unfortunately I've had one set back after another. I've been flat on my back for the last two weeks unable to walk and am just not getting back to moving without severe pain but I don't know when I'll be able to exercise again... feeling very defeated and discouraged and I want to throw the scale out the window :( I'll get over it and keep pressing on but it's really hard right now to have a positive attitude.

    Thanks DollFace and BombShelly... I appreciate the kind words and encouragement.

    I know I will keep plugging away and doing whatever I can do... it's just so depressing to see everything you had worked so hard for go down the drain in no time. I know I have to accept that I have limitations now and just find ways to do whatever I can.... Shelly - I just spun the Sparkwheel - haven't done that in ages :)

    Having experienced a time when even getting out of bed was done only with help from others, I can feel maybe a bit of your pain. . .

    Just ignore that scale for the time being and don't concentrate on what you can't do - there is so much right now it will overwhelm you. . .instead, concentrate on the things you CAN do. . .get out of bed, for one, control what you consume, for another. . .

    Each 'step' is a victory and will lead to other victories over time. . .give yourself a break here and celebrate EVERY lil victory!

    (((Hugs))) to you. Sorry you're having such a tough time. There have been times when the only thing I could do was spin the Sparkwheel. May seem silly, but it at least helped me to feel as if I had done something.

    The best is yet to be...
