Moving to Stage 3



Weighed in this morning at 241.2 which is a little above the 240 goal I had for before my surgery.  A miss but overall I am satisfied since down 40 lbs since start of phase 2 @ 3 months ago.

Surgery is this morning so starting Phase 3 and the goal is simple, do not gain any weight between now and when I get the OK to resume weight bearing on my foot @ Dec 8th.  Given there will be very little physical activity during this period it will be up to portion control & quality food.

Have not golfed for a few weeks and looking forward to speed training & lessons which may start sometime in January depending on my recovery.

Good luck with the surgery.  Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Thx, all went well.

the Dr was a little surprised that the tendon was @ 3” separated from where it is supposed to connect.  It was not a issue s a bd he was pleased with how it went.

was home by 1:30 this afternoon, was initially told to expect an overnight stay.  Good to be home in my own bed.

This is going to be rough.  Prior to my surgery I was burning 3200-3400 calories per day per my FitBit.  Thursday, 1st full day after surgery, I recorded only a 2,200 calorie burn.

i have not bern counting my calorie intake but may need to monitor it more closely to avoid putting weight weight back on.

2  weeks in, I got the stitches out today and they replaced the splint with a cast.  Still no weight bearing for at least 4 weeks.  Overall Doc is happy with how things are going.

I’ve never claimed to be a super active person but 2 weeks basically sitting on my ass or lying in bed is getting old real fast.
