I used to be around here a lot a while ago... How to make a long story short? I don't know....
I started at 259. I got down to 229 over the past several months working with an amazing trainer... He moved recently, and so I'm kind of working with a new trainer, but I haven't been able to see him consistently, and we really don't know each other yet. I've not lost any weight since my trainer moved, and in fact I've had a couple of weeks where I've gained.
I'm dealing with an ankle injury (I've had 2 surgeries in the past two years) that has been hell to rehab (2 steps forward, 1.75 back). I've also developed some knee issues during the ankle rehab. It's so hard. The reality is that the best treatment for both my ankle and my knee: to lose this weight. But how do I get there? I've had several periods where I have not been allowed to do any workout other than upper body weights... Last night I was riding my bike to the gym for a yoga class, and I put my foot down to stop at an intersection and my ankle buckled and I sprained it... That's how bad it is--I can sprain it riding a bike! It's ridiculous. My past trainer did a great job working with and around the leg stuff... It's definitely gone downhill since I stopped working out with him.
So here I am with at least 80 more pounds to go and I feel like I'm totally floundering. I don't know why everything feels so much more difficult without my trainer here, but, honestly, I have no idea how to fix what's going on. I need this though. I need to lose this weight. God, I feel almost desperate.
