Surgeon's appointment disappointment

I waited a bit to write this post because I needed to cool down!

I went to see a surgeon to see if there was something he could do surgically to make it more stable.  I had x rays, a recnt MRI, a progress report from my physio, everything.  He came in, read the CT report from a CT I had 3 years ago, moved my foot around a little and told me he couldn't do anything for me.  He said the CT shows that my ligaments aren't torn and there is nothing to rebuild.  He said I need to lose weight and get orthotics.  Thanks a lot buddy.  I said I've lost more than 50 pounds in less than 8 months!  He said, well then if you lose more it'll be better.  F&%King quack!

I cried the whole way home!

I was supposed to pick up my kids from my brothers when I got back into town, but I needed to dry up before my 3 year old saw me.  So I went back home and went through some of my clothes, put too big ones in a Rubbermaid and pull out the ones that are close to fitting again.

Read this.

My size 36 blue notes goal jeans are too big!  So I pulled out the 34's and they fit!!!  And man do they look good! (pardon the messy bathroom).


I pulled out my fat jeans.  The ones that took me 20 pounds lost to get into and look how tiny my 34's are!


Well, kiddies are waking up, gotta go!

  3. Sorry about your doctor's appointment. If your plan is to lose more weight, one thing I’ve found to be extremely helpful and useful as a supplement to my current diet/exercise plan is Fullbar (www.fullbar.com). Not only does it help with weight loss, it helps keep those pounds from coming back.

    1. Thanks! I'm doing pretty well just watching what I'm eating and I eat frequently so I don't think I need supplements at this point, but I'll keep them in mind!

  4. :( i always get told at my gyno appointment to lose weight and to up my cardio. meanwhile she normally has no clue that i recently dropped weight (the last time im thinking of was when i dropepd 30 lbs) and i already spend one hour 5 days a week at the gym. ugh. i always feel so defeated any time i see her.

    1. Thankfully my family doctor has noticed my "significant weight loss" (her words!) Previous to this weight loss attempt, It was common practice in her practice to suggest weight loss :/ I love that I don't need to hear that there anymore!
