Sometimes I don't know if I'm taking a step forward or a step back.
This is my step forward part, after my Monday night binge, I've done pretty well eating wise. Thank you so much for all your encouragement. Mary Fran put it very directly in telling me not to start over tomorrow but to start over right then. Good advice. I feel much better just being able to voice (write) what is going on with me and not being condemned. Y'all knew just what I needed to hear (read).
Here is my step back part. Remember I mentioned twisting my ankle. Well, it continued to hurt really bad and stayed swollen so I went to the doctor yesterday, who did Xrays. Bottom line he found a hairline fracture in my foot!!!! I have a cast on my leg up to my knee for the next 6-8 weeks!!! Bless his heart, he did put a boot like heel thing on the bottom so I can get around with a cane, no crutches. He could take one look at me and tell I could not manage crutches. Talk about a challenge (not in a good way), dealing with this and driving are a hoot so is bathing (got to put my leg in a trash bag and duck tape it closed around my knee. Don't even try to picture it. Now I'm wondering how much this dang cast weighs. It feels like a ton. On the up side, I do have some mighty fine pain killers.
Of course all I want to do is eat and eat and eat some more but knowing that I can write about my woes may help me keep in control of the eating. Hope y'all are having a great day. I'm doing lunch at my desk and waiting to be brought a salad (not from Chik-fil-a JC) so I'll go for now.
