I Don't Want to be Obese Again! But...

It has been more than 5 years since I started this journey, but not yet 10. I lost the first 5 pounds and then the first 10 pounds. I ran a 5K and then a 10K. 

Finally I lost over 70 pounds. I also ran 8 marathons.

This is my first blog back since the wedding. Me and Ruth couldn't be happier! It is amazing what connecting with the right person can do. She supports my career goals, my diet and comes to every half or full marathon to cheer me on. The rest she runs with me.

I have written about my broken femur. Well, it's healed!

6 weeks ago I ran a half marathon and stepped in a pothole about an inch deep. It was just enough to force me to put too much weight on my left leg. That was somewhere between miles 9 and 10. I finished the race and could not wait to sit down!

I did the guy thing and waited a week before seeing a doctor.

I thought it was a flesh wound, but the doctor found a crack in the femur at the knee. Originally they though it even looked healed - an old football injury. Or in my case, motocross or hockey. 2 weeks out I went to the orthopedic surgeon. They did an MRI and found a rather large subcutaneous fracture.

Did I tell you I also had a fracture in my foot not long ago?

All this got me to thinking about why I had 2 fractures, yet I easily finished a full marathon in September. I messaged the doctor and he is going to have me in for a bone scan. It could be related to my medication, or something more sinister. I don't know.

Yeah. :(

I decided to do something more than just see doctors. I am a believer in the power of prayer (and working hard to achieve results). This past Saturday while Ruth was out shopping with her son, I went to the healing rooms and got prayer. In just a few minutes I went from walking on crutches to getting around pretty well. The bone pain was gone, Really gone!

My leg is still stiff and weak from non use, but that is manageable.

All this not running, laying bed, resting, and taking it easy make my food consumption a huge risk. I want to be back in onederland. Currently I am at 217. It sucks because I was doing so well. I always look forward to stepping on the scale when I go for my yearly cardiology check up, which is next week.

The doctor continues to smile at my progress and sticktoitiveness.

This weight loss thing is so fragile. I am doing what I know how to do and will be more and more active in the coming weeks. Portions are the key as my diet is still really good, I cut down on the fruit and upped the protein a little more. Less sugar and less carbs (which turn to sugar and stored fat).

I don't think I could manage my weight without activity. I do no't want to be obese again!

I am in for my 4th quarter checkups with half a dozen doctors. I have to get my blood drawn for PSAs next week. I expect those to be better too!

Thanks for the votes and comments, but most important, thanks for your support.

You are truly one of my biggest (no pun...:))inspirations - for fitness, faith, fortitude, etc. I share your quotes often, but I am not fully practicing what I "preach". Working on it. Thanks for sharing and I look forward to more good news (and humorous "tough love").

You are probably so very sick and tired of being sick (or injured) and tired. Yet, you persevere. You are truly an inspiration. I have great faith in you. I know you will be successful.

Congrats on the wedding! No one deserves such joy as much as you. I looked for you last week and thought "oh no!" when I couldn't find you. Now I realize it was "Oh Yeah!!" for you and Ruth. Best regards to you both.

Injuries are so difficult! You are amazing! You have overcome so much! To stay at the weight you want, you will have to change what/how you eat since you can't run right now. But, that's ok. You will be fine. Look at this a temporary problem. You can do it!
Congratulations on your weight loss and wedding!!!!!!!!!

Don't know you, haven't read all your blogs. But if you lost 70 pounds, kept it off, and became a onderland-dwelling marathon runner, you DO have stick-to-it-ivness. I know you will be back running again soon. In the meantime you know what to do and how to do it. MFP will do the math, you do the rest. You know you can do it because you already did. God has and will continue to bless you!

I would just look up exercises that are for people with low mobility or that are in wheelchairs and do them. You have come so far. That is wonderful

I am Jane Badmus from CANADA,I am very happy today because of what the great Dr. OCUSODO has done in my life. I got married to my loving husband 2 years ago and we were living a happy life together as young couples and everything was moving on smoothly without any problem,6 months later I went to the hospital for checkup and the doctor confirmed that I am three weeks pregnant with my heart filled with joy and my face full of smile and laughter I went home hurriedly to brake the good news to my dearly husband and he was very happy about the news and that night is a night I will always live to remember, to cut the story short after I have put to birth he was very happy, you have to see our bouncing baby boy, but along the line and all of a sudden he started keeping late night and going to club and doing things he don't use to do before, and one mourning I confronted him about his new attitude but he ignore my advice, but to my greatest surprise I discover my husband have a mistress in his working place and they were seeing each other after work hour. on one faithful night my husband came back home and started packing all his belongings and told me that he is tired of me that he is filing for a annulment not knowing that his mistress has cast love spell on him that was why he was acting strange so I told my friend happiness in my working place so she gave me this contact drocusodospellcaster@gmail.com or drocusodospellcaster@yahoo.com an d ask me to contact him that he will help me to bring back my husband in noon less than three days so when I got home I contacted him and he told me that my husband is under a great love spell but he promise to help bring back my husband which he actually did within the period of three days. I was surprise to see my husband on one blessed mourning kneeling at my doorstep asking for my forgiveness saying it is the work of the devil that he did not know when he did what he has done and I forgive him and today we are living happily together. all thanks to great Dr. OCUSODO for his great help in my family for helping me to restore my lost joy to my family, in-case you have similar case or even worst than my own you can contact him whats-app Or call number::: +2349067457724
