Weight & Broken Bones

Before I broke my foot I….
- weighed 137 pounds (no cast)
- worked out daily
- was training for a marathon
- was on my university’s cheer team
- was a gymnast
- ate fairly healthy

Now that I’ve broken my foot I….
- weigh 128 (with the cast on)
- work out lightly twice a week
- can’t run
- can’t do gymnastics
- can’t cheer
- eat like a NFL quarterback
- and sit around watching TV most of the day.

I do not post this to brag about weight loss because I am NOT proud. Let me repeat that- I am NOT proud of this weight loss because I know it’s muscle loss. I was shocked to see how quickly it really goes. I have only been on crutches for a week and a half now. And while my arms are going to be ripped- I’m still nowhere near as active as I was.

Counting down the days until I can get back to my old self!

Side Note- I’m 5’ 3”.
