what to do when you don't like to cook, and really don't know how
We sound a lot alike. I was just lecturing myself on how I must start eating better and planning ahead. It seems I go from one activity to another and don't have time to eat then go through a drive-through on my way home. I'm a sugar addict and have still not been able to give up Diet Coke. I don't have a new hip, but I need one and can't have the surgery. And I think I may also be experiencing a rotator cuff problem (would like to know more about yours and what the symptoms are).

I cannot really exercise much, but if I can change my thoughts to more positive ones and start eating better, I think I have a good chance of at least losing some weight. And even if I don't lose much weight, I'm sure to at least start feeling better. Maybe if you buddy up with someone, you'd stand a better chance of sticking to it this time.

Sometimes you have to stop and think...
So true and well said. I don't think a lot of people realize how important mind set is in the weight loss battle!

Swollen ankles???
I agree that cankles suck! I have hypothyroidism too, but in my case, I learned that my cankles are a symptom of the leaky aortic valve I have. My cardiologist changed my BP meds and took me off the diuretic I was on. I told him that I suppose cankles are better than a heart attack because I was on meds that weren't doing me any favors.

Steady she goes!
I have exercise restrictions too. After I finished physical therapy (because my insurance allotment for PT for the fiscal year had run out), I asked if I could join just the pool in the facility where I was going for PT. Since I have been continuing my PT exercises (plus added more) regularly in the warm pool, I have managed to remain relatively pain-free since shortly after Christmas, even though I still need a hip replacement and have limited range of motion on dry land. It's been a real godsend, and not being in pain constantly motivates me to keep going. Now, only if I could get motivated to be more consistent with healthy eating!

Regognizing progress
That was a very inspirational story on a day when I need to be kind to myself and realize just how far I've come already. Too often we're in such a hurry to get to the next step that we don't really stop to appreciate and pat ourselves on the back for all we've done aready to get where we are today.
