minor setback

Well the dr called yesterday afternoon and said I have a stress fracture of my left foot. I went after I got the call and now have a fracture boot an ace wrap and refused to pay 42.00 for a new set of crutches when I had a set at home from the 6th grade when I broke my left ankle when I fell off a bike. So I am using those crutches instead. I have pain pills to take as needed and last night was the first night in atleast 3 weeks I was able to get a decent nights sleep! I am aloud to take my boot off to only do pool exercises no more biking and walking and jogging for now. I hope that soon my foot heals because I am so afraid to gain back what weight I have lost. I already gave up the walking and biking a few weeks ago because I couldn't stand the pain and was pushing thru the pain from runnin in place in the pond but dr says I can't do that anymore either! GRRRRRRR


THanks for reading!

That's too bad, but I know you can make it through this.

Anything you can do to burn calories will help.

SJ,


Thanks so much for your reply I found it very helpful as you have been there! I will be more vigilant in what goes in my mouth and am gonna make sure Im writing it ALL down just to make sure I don't do the junk eating. I did find myself buying a bag of cheese curls tonite however it is still unopened and DH has already taken and thrown it in the trunk of the car since he was reading behind my shoulder! LOL!!! Im glad to see your doing better and getting back to the gym! Im gonna try a stationary bike and see how it goes with my foot. Its still at the point where its very sore and even swimming seems to hurt it!


THanks so very much!!!

If you walk enough, you'll have awesome arm muscles when you're off crutches!
