I'm in a mess!

Saturday, May 31, 2008

I've gone and done it now. While on vacation in Florida I fell and broke my fibula. I am now in a cast and cannot put any weight on that leg for 6-8 weeks! There goes my daily walk! Trying to get around is extremely difficult. I will no doubt have one hip that is very tight and svelt. The other one will be flabby! What a challenge!

But now of course, since I'm getting no exercise I don't know how may calories I can eat and still lose weight. I have a feeling my arms may tighten up since if I use a walker I put all my weight on them. But without being able to be active I fear for my weight and I can't afford to have more weight to put more pressure on my arms!

This is a real mess. Any suggestions for me? I am going on another trip in 2 weeks so while I can't really get around other than riding on the tour bus, (so no exercise) I'm sure I'll have lots to eat!

This is going to me my biggesgt challenge so far. Life is interesting, isn't it?

    My thoughts and prayers are with you for a full speedy recovery.

    These broken bones happen so suddenly and unexpectedly. I know! Been there, done that!

    How are you doing?

    Wow. I know what you mean about going and doing it. I was just getting to the point of exercising everyday. I had a heart attack on April 17th and a double by-pass on April22nd. I haven't been able to exercise except for walking and I can't wait to get back to it. I did lose 12 pounds since then but I need to lose more. I have reduced what I eat until i can get back to exercising. So keep your chin up and get better. Hugs, Sherry emoticon
