Resetting my goals again

Saturday, November 11, 2017

After my body finally got over the side effects of steroids and Cox 2 Inhibitors I maintained the new weight for 2 months. Then I got water in my knees from arthritis. Yes permanent damage is becoming a reality - and I am not giving up. This means once again that I have to adjust my lifestyle. I am still struggling with how to exercise without straining my knees and am concentrating currently on gentle walks and knee strengthening body weight exercise. Then I travelled to the US to attend 1 Training course and a conference and finally spend a few days with an old friend. I have myself slack. The result us 2kg gained. But for not having been able to exercise much that is ok. Now I need to refocus and start exercising again and focusing on what I eat. I need to reduce those carbs again to a more reasonable level. At times I hate myself for being back to almost the same weight I was last year June. But I know part of it is due to side effects of drugs. So I trying to stop beating myself up and just simply focus on how to lose the extra weight.

    You are doing great Steph. Think of where your weight would be if you were not paying any attention to your plan.

    You can do this Steph. Life just threw you some hurdles. Now that things are getting back on track you can do this, I know you will. Hope you had a good time in the States. Just do what you know you have to do. The weight will come back off, just as it did before.

    I'm glad to hear that you're back on the mend.

    Take care. Oh btw how is your BFF doing? Is she done with chemo by now and in remission?

    Thanks everyone for the encouragement. Seems the story of my life. Every time I think I am getting on top of my game some health issue pulls the carpet from under my feet
