I see that some of you are feeling "stuck" because you are maintaining weight while losing size, or fluctuating a few pounds.
I just GAINED 8 POUNDS IN 24 HOURS...due to swelling from a bicycling accident, and the only exercise I can manage is short walks until I heal.
I will get through the pain, the inability to exercise in all the ways I could just a few days ago, and the weight will drop off as I heal and pick up my pace again.
My focus right now is rest, fluids, and healthy foods. I will get out for a walk this afternoon if I am able to stay awake. My left shoulder is strained/sprained and in a sling, and I have road-rash and bruises on both legs from ankle to butt (range of area, but in patches about the size of my hand).
So, focus on doing healthy things for your body and have a little patience. If you have any patience to spare I could use some too.
Hi April ouch I hope you recover quickly I was feeling sorry for myself with a sore foot till I read your injury report all I can say is do your best to recover . and you are right the body heals better if you stick to healthy foods. Hugs Judy:)

OMfreekingG! Sounds like you took quite a tumble off your bike. So sad for you. Road Rash hurts sooooooo bad too. I fell on my face one time and skinned a chunk off my cheek and forehead, thought I'd never heal , lol. Just take everything really slow. Be careful of that shoulder injury, really. No laughing matter there, because if you work it too soon, you could do further, more permanent damage. Your weight gain, is obviously water and meds. Drink alot of water to help flush everything through your system and be patient. Hope you feel better as the days go by huggs K
