May 18, 2012 Update

Well, my last post was about two months ago. I have another blog going on. This one is more personal and I have finally found the courage to write about my weight.

Since March I have had knee surgery. The doctor did an arthroscopic knee surgery and scraped some scar tissue & cut and removed my Plica band (you can google it). That was three weeks ago. My knee is slowly healing and I cannot exercise. At all. It swells with too much walking. The doctor said this is normal for the first 6 weeks or so. I am walking with a bit of a limp but it is getting better.

I really thought I would exercise and feel great but my knee is slowing me down. Our Ireland trip is coming up next month and I was feeling like I would be heavy forever. Right before my surgery I was back up to 152.4 lbs. When you cannot move, the calories really add up.

A bunch of some old friends from a high school youth group I attended in the 1990’s were posting photos of befores & afters on the Facebook accounts. They were losing weight and keeping it off with Isagenix.

I did some research and ordered the 30 day cleanse program for about $324. I just finished week 2 and have lost 7 pounds. I am down to 145.4 lbs. I haven’t been this low in years.

I have two weeks left on the program and am hoping to get to … yup … 142. This means I need to lose another 3.4 lbs. I am 5’8″ and feel best around the upper 130’s, lower 140’s. And I am almost there!
