Congrats Mary AND Dini! Nothing like having a motivator to get us kicked into gear!
I'm still plugging away - 20.6 lbs down thus far. My exercise came to a skidding slowdown 2-1/2 weeks ago. I pulled my gastroc (large calf muscle) during my fitness class, and this puppy is a beeyatch to rehab. I mean, I have to walk to get around, so how do I rest it? I did the whole R.I.C.E. thing, and laid off any serious walking until last week, but it's a struggle. I can't get the t'mill up over 2 mph. Muscle is still stiff and crampy. I'm still using hand weights, and do as much aerobic work as the leg allows. I suspect I may have to breakdown and go for PT on it, as there is most likely some serious scar tissue involved given how tight it is.
I'm not giving up though!
DD#1 and her fiance will be here this weekend for a wedding planning visit, and the other 2 kiddos will be home for a visit as well - 1st time all 3 have been together at the same time in over 3 years! Should be fun - and I will definitely get pictures. I really do miss them all (DS & DD2 are living together in NYC - he lost his roommate and she still hadn't found a job up here, so he thought if she moved down there with him, she'd stand a better chance at finding something in her field.)
Hope you're all doing great and thanks for not letting me vanish! It's tough getting on here for me (I LIVE on Facebook!)
