Trusting the process!

Wednesday, May 29, 2019

I weigh 21 pounds less than I did one year ago today. That is a loss of 11.6% of my bodyweight. I plateaued when my deteriorated knee made vigorous cardio unsafe last September, but I did NOT gain during this time or the Total Knee Replacement surgery or the rehab. Aggressive PT gave me back a functioning leg and the ability to exercise JOYFULLY rather than with great pain, for the first time in many years. I achieved a new Log-in streak and, while I know Sparkpoints alone and logging in aren’t enough to give me better health, they represent tenacity. And tenacity is providing momentum. I. Am. Grateful. I. Am. Committed.

This is my first blog entry since 2015. And this is the best I’ve felt in an even longer time!

    Tenacity and momentum and commitment -- that's a terrific achievement and particularly with the knee surgery too.

    Must feel so good to have a lighter body and a functioning knee again!!

    Wow! I am impressed that you made it through surgery and rehab without gaining anything. I had foot surgery and gained 10 pounds.
