Message From Balloon Woman

Yep, I put on my brown capris today and they were hard to do up. Sigh. I know/knew I have been eating badly and not taking my recovery into the equation of couch-sitting. This has resulted in eating myself into gained weight.

How I imagine myself, sigh!

How I imagine myself, sigh!

I have a pile of excuses but I am not superwoman.

1) I am not getting much in way of calorie burning exercise. I get in trouble with my amazing physiotherapists for standing too long – more than 15 minutes in each hour – and walking too much. Since when can you walk too much – it turns out when you’re recovering from a knee replacement.
2) I’m depressed. Duh! I’m still in a bit of pain, I can’t go far, too much computer and TV. I mean, really, too much Perry Mason would depress anyone.
3) I’m hungry all the time. I crave cheese and meat. My muscles, tendons and bones are growing back so I believe my body needs these things that’s why it’s craving them, right?

But none of these reasons excuse things like: chocolate bars (Kit Kat Chunky), pizza, chips (Lays contest: PEI Scalloped Potatoes and/or Montreal Smoked Beef) and crackers for the cheese. I’m eating like a teenage boy. And now my clothes are feeling it.

I’m worried about this gain. It’s making me sadder and feeling more disabled. I see my doctor tomorrow and I believe my weight will be way up, my blood pressure will be up and I’ll need more prescription pain meds.

So what am I going to do? I’ve already started my food journal again. I’ve eaten a low calorie – low carb breakfast and am writing my blog. I’ll do my nails and feel more feminine superhero-ish. I’ll sweep the floor and put my leg up right after that activity. I’ll count all my supporters and thank you for the waves of support you send me and wish they melted pounds. I’ve lost a lot of weight and I know I’ll lose this back-slide and more because I can.

So, thanks for listening and get a giggle out of what I found looking for “Balloon Woman” on line. ;D Diane
