    I am kinda in a holding pattern now. Altho everyone is telling me how much thinner I look. I kinda stopped (I actually did lol) tracking my macros everyday and been eating healthy but probably not perfect split. I have been avoiding the pitfalls of the holiday season and my coworkers stopped inviting me to eat the "designer" cupcakes they tote into the office.

    My clothes are fitting well but I have been avoiding the scale. I hate that scale. I have some definition in my butt checks. Still have definition in my legs and vascular in my arms. Not Kelkel veins lol.

    i think i'm ok now. yes, was around 250lbs. 14% bf, not great, but not a slouch either. was sick in may, then moved to afghanistan and that was about it for me. got sick again. lasted for over two months this last time. never figured out what happened.

    third world countries SUCK when it comes to diseases and staying healthy.

    I know guys.I rather not like running but I have to condition for it. I will be running outside which makes it a little more interesting. I have NO desire to run a full marathon. I could probably tolerate a half but still no desire. That's not on any lifetime list of mine.

    Ohh we are not knocking you for doing the running, I get it, I run the odd time but I prefer the crosstrainer myself.

    Sometimes life throws us some speed bumps... And Had one come my way. Doc orders no working out for 2 months. Nothing. No cardio of any kind. No lifting weights. I can breath and walk. No jogging no elliptical. Think couch potato.

    So thinking about severely restricting calories and running low dose var. 2.5mg. Thoughts???

    If i couldn't work out for a period of time i would look to doing pilates and yoga.

    if you can walk, go walk on the treadmill with your gym clothes on and keep the mental game alive.

    I would go see a osteo or a sports medicine dr for a second opinion

    Oh GGR! I'm so sorry. You've had such a rotten year - I wish I could fix it for you.
    The gym will always be there when you get ready. Take care of yourself.

    Progress is always good, even walking on a thread mill is one step on the road to hopefully being better.

    I am sleeping most of the day from meds. Feel like a couch potato.

    Shoes is my weakness. I was looking for hours and found some beautiliious pumps. It's hard buying and walking in heels with my broken big toe. Taking a while to heal. Still fat and red but I can bend it now. LoL

    Easily done to feel like that once you get into the rut of watching tv etc.

    Lol, my weakness is car parts and speakers, end up spending a fotune on both which are both valueless when you try and re sell them. Ouch on the toe that is normally the worst one to break too pain wise.

    Ouchy, that is one thing I always am wary about when I am taking plates off the squat bar in the Gym, it was bad enough when a plate flipped over onto my foot one time can only imagine the pain of a broken toe ooowww

    At least i didn't loose the toe nail and mess up my pedicures for 8 months especially with spring around the corner

    DCI, I gotta thank you. after laying around the couch for 2 weeks, I decided to get my butt to the gym. my goal is treadmill for 6 miles with some incline. it didn't help that I ate 2 cookies last night (for dinner) but it is time for me to get my head back in the game. Needed that push!
