    Crutches, Calories and Core. My recovery diary.

    You may have seen my previous thread, where I lost a pretty significant amount of weight. I then put two thirds of it back on after depression and injury prevented me working out.

    I'm back, but with an issue. I've got necrosis in my ankle, so it's pretty badly broken in many places. I've also got two torn ligaments in that ankle, meaning I'm on crutches for the next 6 weeks minimum, and I need surgery to fix this. It'll be 2022 before I'm back to normal.

    Until I have surgery, I'll be unable to weight bear, and that means no deadlifts etc. I'll be switching up my routine and doing a lot of work on maintaining my upper body strength whilst I go on a pretty severe cut.

    I'm planning to drop to 78kg over the next 6 months, as I've learned during my two hip replacements that the lighter you are, the easier recover is.

    It's going to be very light for my frame, but I have to reduce the weight on my joints.

    Starting weight: 95.6kg
    Today's weight: 95.1kg
    To lose: 17.1

    2 Weeks down. It was my Wedding anniversary in that time (cake and lots of it), and parenthood/decorating is taking a lot of my time. It's not been a very successful 2 weeks, but I am lighter.

    Starting weight: 95.6kg
    Today's weight: 94.8kg
    To lose: 16.8kg

    Up at 6am this morning, so not much sleep, but I did get a mace workout in. Really pushing the core side of things.

    You'll smash it mate, in again all the way Next time if chit goes wrong just keep logging. We don't care if the weight is going up instead of down, we just care that you're here and keeping a log of when things go bad is often more valuable to you even if it doesn't feel great.

    I know you've got some issues with binge mentality, go steady, don't over restrict. In the end you'll see faster weight loss from a consistent, steady drop than if you yo-yo even if initial loss is rapid

    Look forward to hearing more!

    Yeah, previously I was restricting to 1600-1800 calories a day as I felt my control over binge eating was so low that it was "all or nothing", but I'm in a better place now.

    No progress to report, as I have fallen into the trap of Christmas excess eating - I couldn't resist the giant mince pie that was offered for dessert, which I really didn't need on top of a roast. Then advent calendar (yeah, i'm a man child for those things!) is giving me chocolate every day. All of these things on top of my lack of exercise are only serving to cause me more problems.

    The big thing is, I clearly don't want it *enough* at the moment. I say I want it, and talk a good game, but it's not an obsession. If I want to achieve things, they're often an obsession. The goal will occupy every my every thought, and I wouldn't mindlessly eat bad food.

    Back on My Fitness Pal, sticking to a 2000-2200 calorie count, and aiming for at least 140g of protein.

    As i've said, priority is losing weight and being light rather than building muscle, as post ankle operation is going to be hard if i'm heavy.

    Fell apart again. I said before I didn't want it enough. I knew I was going to fail again.

    I'm actually starting therapy in 2 weeks, and I feel like I've had a lift just by having the first appointment.

    I feel way more on the ball and back to normal from an eating point of view, so it's back to it. Aim of losing 50lbs/22.5kg on 2021.

    I've had my appointment with the physio team who have assessed me and referred me to the surgical consultants for further investigation as to their suggested course of treatment for my broken ankle.

    Physio has warned me it's likely to be suggested that the result will be a fused ankle. Only time will tell - I've been given little reason to be optimistic that it will be fixed in 2021, so 2022 is my year!

    I've still got a 10km swim booked in for June, so that's my only 2021 target.

    95.5kg today, so back to where I was a month or so ago.

    Positive start to the new year. I've been down on calories both days. Will try and be in a deficit for as long as possible - I've got a lot of weight to lose before my op if I'm going to make a quick recovery.

    Slow and steady though, no 1600 calorie days like last time.

    Just as a reminder to you all that weight loss isn't everything, I'll just detail a few other things I'm doing.

    1 Accountability on here, as even though people don't really converse much on my threads, I know that people find it a positive read, and I don't want to let down anybody in a similar position to myself.

    2 I'm trying to keep busy, and I'm doing this with a task planner on my phone. It's set recurring daily tasks, and any ad-hoc tasks I may have. It's working so far.

    3 I'm focused on other parts of my body - I'd like to grow my hair out as it feels like now is my last chance to hide my hair from the general public. I'm really focused on a skincare routine, and know that the results will come in 3-6 months, just like my diet.

    4 I am doing a daily journal, with tasks to complete as part of it. This is helping me focus on positives in my life and not the negatives.

    5 I've bought myself a bass guitar and am paying for lessons as part of going outside of my comfort zone and working on my life goals - one of which is to play a musical instrument.

    So that's just some of the other things in my sphere right now. All being well I wake up and the scales will be in the 94.x range, and from there I know I can be sub-90 in March.

    Good job man, and well done for focusing on other things as well as weight loss.

    Just remember sometimes wanting something TOO much and making it that obsession can be equally a reason for failure as not wanting it enough so don't fall into that trap either. Usually the best way is just to keep things in control and let the fat loss tick away in the background whilst building solid eating habits

    Wish you all the luck of 2021!

    94.75kg today. 4kg to go until I'm under 200lbs, which is the point I start feeling a little better about myself.

    Strong start, and I'm feeling good.

    My distractions are working well so far - instead of going to sneak a binge when I'm alone, I'm sneaking a bass practice session.

    Looking forward to the temps going up in a week - it's been minus here every night recently, so the garage is too cold to work out in - lose feeling in my fingers within minutes of holding my equipment.
