If you have followed me at all, you know that I speak from the heart. Just over a year ago I wrote my last piece for this blog. I started this blog to be about my journey and your journey. I am sad to say that I lost my way for a while. When I struggled with my weight journey I started to find other things to blog about to fill the void. I have tried to even restart other blogs but still void not felt. My personal life is also falling to pieces. But even before that I started to feel the need to return to get back on my personal journey of health. I feel I let everyone down. But I do realize that failure is all part of the journey.
I hate excuses, so what I am about to tell you, is not my just my account of my last year. Last year in August during the last week of the Biggest Loser competition, I started to feel heel pain. Which meant I couldn’t work out, which started a tail spin in my diet. I didn’t go to a doctor because I thought they would look at me and my weight and blame it on my weight, plus I thought they would just tell me to stay off my foot. I live paycheck to paycheck, so missing work wasn’t an option and I stand on my feet all day. I thought it would eventually go away. But it didn’t it got worst and worst. It took me a year to realize that I really needed to seek a doctor. Which I finally did the beginning of September. I found out that I had a giant heel spur, bursitis, plantar fasciitis. I have just had my third visit to two different doctors. I got my second cortisone shot today. I am not at the point where I can begin to exercise again, but I believe I am getting closer. And the desire is growing.
I gained back all the weight that I lost plus more. I don’t even know how much I weigh because my scale wont tell me. I did not drink soda for more than a year and I am back to where I started. So my first goal is to get off of soda. It is just hard with all my personal problems because soda has always been one of my be crutches in life. I hope to begin writing for this blog again and sharing my continued journey. My hope is that this blog will return to the health blog I started it to be. I also will post a link to my first post on a new blog I intend to publish, which I will get to write about one of my other passions ” The Walking Dead”
