This could be my first sucessful month since...

I hope I do not speak too soon, but this could be my first "successful" month of weight loss since 2007!

In November 2007 I had knee surgery and my limited mobility resulted in gaining weight.

2008 has been a stressful year full of loss and pain.

Stress Eating + Healing Knee = Even more weight gain!

Half a year later, I am about 18 pounds over where I was last November! :(
Amazing how those sneeky pounds suddenly add up...

But FINALLY it seems that things are turning back around! :-D

My calories are being counted again, and I am healed enough to be consistantly active again! :)

My "old knee" is really starting to hurt though, but I want to get back to my previous weight before I get the surgery again. This time I will do a better job of watching what I eat when laid up. :)

Delayed by not derailed,

Jess

Yay! Happy to see a new post and happy to hear you're back on track!

I love reading your blog, and when I hear about your setbacks (which, of course, are inevitable for ANYONE) I almost feel like I'm getting frustrated right along with you (since I know how hard weight management can be)...so hearing that you're moving forward with a positive mindset makes me smile.

Way to go!

18 pounds is not a whole lot, Jessica. It could've been a lot worse! So, don't be too hard on yourself. You've "caught it," and now you know what to do. :)

Maybe you can do some type of exercise in a pool - less pressure on your knees?

You can do it - you've been an inspiration to me, so just know I'm rooting for you.

Calie. :)
