I was doing so good…I was eating right, watching my #'s, writing everything down, started walking on a treadmill everyday…lost 25lbs!! Then I decided to step it up on the treadmill to my foots demise - it started hurting me to the point I went to the foot Dr. I have since been informed that I am in need of some surgery…I've been afraid to get on the treadmill since. Anyway, I now have my hands on a stationary bike that my husband will be picking up either tomorrow or Friday for me!! I cannot express my happiness!! I am DETERMINED to keep this under control…I CAN DO THIS WITHOUT TAKING PILLS!! Happy New Year to everyone!!

Great job shedding the pounds, with watching your food intake and doing exercise your certainly on the right trek, I use elliptacle myself , once it warms up my husband and I look forward to walking outside also , too cold night we would turn into human Popsicles :)

Because of the foot thing for some reason I've let myself slide off the beaten path…that's why I'm an idiot…But, the bike helps my activity and I can make this work! I'm getting back on the path! LOL

The Dr's I work for do that type of surgery several times a week. I would say 95% have no problems after surgery and very little pain. I understand you being scared. Make sure your sugar is in control before having the surgery and do everything the dr says to do and you will do fine. I was thinking you were going to say you had plantar fascittis and I was gonna say do conservative measures before jumping into surgery on it. I will keep you in my prayers

What is wrong with your foot and what kind of surgery are you having? I work for a podiatrist that is why I'm asking.

Well meems40 I have a big bunion & hammer toe that a totally aggravated while doing the treadmill. My foot hasn't felt right at all…I just haven't gotten up the nerve to make the "surgery call". From what I see on the internet its a very invasive surgery & I'm scared

I can never have OJ per my doctor. I had a low and took a sip and it spiked me really high. My doctor said to never drink it. I had one section of an orange and was fine. I found I have no problems eating a small tangerine.
