Although I wouldn't recommend having surgery to anyone trying to live a healthier lifestyle sometimes it can't be avoided.
I am 12 days into my recovery from ankle ligament repair. I have been completely non-weight bearing for those days, either in a wheel chair or on crutches the entire time. It has been entirely frustrating. That this whole thing coincided with the holidays hasn't made it any easier. Friends have been super helpful by bringing meals and holiday treats.
Apparently I am still struggling with handing my will over to my higher power because I have not resisted one single sugary temptation. I am trying hard to get back on my plan now by tracking all of my food.
I am truly a mom over the top! I have been a compulsive overeater for most of my life. The first time I remember specific over the top eating behaviors was when I was 13 years old. That was 24 years ago. I started on this journey to health, to abstinence, to sanity in May, 2010. I hope that by blogging I can help, not only myself, but help others to know that they aren't alone. My tools on this journey are Overeaters Anonymous and SparkPeople.
