  2. Thank you Diane! I thought of your cake post yesterday. I endulged a bit as it was Valentines Day and what I thought would taste really good (the ice cream cake with hot fudge etc...) only made me feel sick! Going back to old eating 'habits' doesn't feel the same. Rotator cuff has a minor tear so some physical therapy and I should be back to normal - fingers crossed!

7 1/2 Weeks Post Op - 185lbs

It's been almost 8 weeks since my surgery. I never thought I would see this day! The aqua therapy and physical therapy has paid off (as well as the surgery). My leg and back are pain free. Yesterday at my last physical therapy appointment I hopped, skipped, jumped and ran on the treadmill for 2 minutes! Pain Free!!! I never thought I would hear myself say the words: "I ran". My recovery time for this surgery was a lot tougher than the surgery I had last year. It feels like I can start to move forward. Unfortunately during my recovery time for comfort I've done a lot of eating. When I was actively exercising/running I would get a runners high. I think that was a big help to keeping me on track with my eating. The endorphins gave me a comfort high. However when I feel stress and lack of control and running isn't an option I tend to gravitate to food. Food and the pleasure of eating it is something I can control. Unfortunately there is a down side and that is we

Sonya 'Lost It'

Well it's now after Christmas and before New Years as I write this post.  I have been on hiatus for a long time on my blog.  I've been spending some of my time thinking about what I was going to write. I have been through some difficult times starting back in late October.  What I am about to write is very personal.   I feel a little bit foolish for sharing this with everyone as most people don't share their 'business' never mind posting it in a blog.  My hope in this post is to not have people feel sorry for me but that readers get an understanding for my situation and also an understanding of others who are going through something similar. Taking a deep breath. I am currently being treated for depression and anxiety and I'm almost finished with an intensive outpatient program at a local hospital (thankfully it's an amazing psychiatric hospital about 40 minutes from my home). For those who are reading this and have either gone through a depressive

The Weight Loss High

'Weight loss high' is a term I use when I describe what it's like to lose weight.  It's a high I had experienced while in the midst losing all that weight.  It was a feeling of nothing getting in my way and almost being invincible.  When I lost the weight for the first year I didn't go to any groups or meetings.  I logged my food in a journal, counted my WW points and exercised.  Every Monday morning was like Christmas morning for me.  I couldn't wait to see what the number was on the scale.  I averaged 2lbs a week weight loss for many weeks. Fast forward to today: I've 'lost the weight' and I'm in maintenance mode or I should be.  I gained 10lbs and now I'm trying to lose them again!  Maintenance is hard because the weight loss 'high' is gone.  The 'high' during weight loss is a nice distraction and it feels great.  I kept thinking I wonder when I'll fit into the next size down in jeans? Without the distraction of th
