I have so many reaching out to me on my facebook page and my email that I thought I would send an update:
In October, I had a bilateral knee replacement surgery on my left knee. For those of you following my blog, you all know that this was something I knew I was facing for about 3 years. The recovery was tough. BEYOND tough. I had a really bad reaction to medication. I was only going to be off work for 2 weeks, but ended up being off work for 7 weeks. For 2 months, I couldn't pick up my leg to even get in the car. I had to literally pick it up with my hands to get it into the car. It just didn't go as planned.
I gained about 10 or 15 pounds during this time because of inactivity. I couldn't even do basic grocery shopping for the longest time, so I had to eat what I could. I am VERY lucky that, even with the holidays, I didn't gain more than that!!!
I am in a better place now with my knee. I still can't work out yet, but there is hope around the corner and I will soon be able to get back into the gym. I also started back on Belviq yesterday to help jump start my diet patterns. I don't plan on being on it for long, just needed a little motivation!!!
Anyway, that's the skinny, or the fat of it all.
Hope you are having an awesome 2016.
