I don't think I've ever written about this before, mostly because I try to avoid public whining. That's what family is for, right?
I've had structural issues with my feet forever, prescription orthotics since 1992.........essentially, a lot of my life has been directed by foot drama for well over 20 years.
When I came to SP almost three years ago, I approached it as a job that needed to be done. Tracking e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g, working hard, and reaping tremendous rewards(from 179 to 128lbs). When I reached my goal, I went on maintenance, and started to get a little sloppy, regaining some weight. Took some off again last fall. My last logged weigh-in was Oct 26, at 135 lbs.
My foot situations have intensified, and I've had to come to terms with the fact that this will only get worse, not better, perhaps we can slow down the decline. My response has been WRONG. I've spent a lot of time feeling sorry for myself and eating self-destructively. The result is that I've put TEN pounds on since fall.
I have to get back on top of things...Not so I can wear smaller jeans, but to protect my health and ability to walk.
It's important for me to keep doing what I can, and refrain from doing what I can't. I think the latter is harder, right now.
For at least the near future, I plan to post my daily goals and how I meet them. Just to keep me honest
