Miraculum's Journal, 30 September 2017

With the close of September, I've now been more active on this journey for three months, one-quarter of the year. I've lost 24.7 pounds, a little over eight pounds a month on average, and a little over one-third of the total I want to lose. That's encouraging to me! During the second quarter of this "game," I'll be preparing for right foot surgery. Keeping my blood sugar stable and losing a few more pounds will only help.

From my experience with the Global Weight Loss Program, I've discovered what eating regimen lends itself best to both goals: lean grilled protein of my choice; high-water content/colorful vegetables; leafy salads; fruits like berries, peaches, and plums; no dairy.

I'm off!

I'm looking at the next 3 months, until the end of the year as "part 2" of my journey. I've been happy with part 1, when I first signed up on FS on 7/27, but then I always lose the most in the first month or so. Part 2 is during the holidays so will be challenging. But I told my doctor I'd lose 15 pounds by the end of December (I told myself 20, but I'll really need to push hard). How long is the recovery time from the foot surgery and when will you have it?

Hi, Fritzy. When you posted your message on 09/30, I was weeks away from my surgery consult. On Monday, 10/23, I met with the surgeon. I've had a number of different surgical procedures (gall bladder, tonsils, to fix a broken leg, to name a few). This one, however, is really daunting. Afterward, it'll be two weeks with the foot elevated, a total of 8-12 weeks in a cast, and then another number of weeks in a walking cast. The length of the recovery period depends on the rate of healing of the fusion, which is dependent on the degree of blood sugar control. The relationship between blood sugar level and my ability to walk has never been more immediate or more real. Frankly, I'm scared straight.

Do you control your blood sugar with medication or just through your diet? I understand being scared - I would be too. But that usually motivates me to do whatever the doctor says to do. Is your doctor guiding/advising you how to get ready for the surgery?
