I am on the second day of the fourth week of the South Beach Diet. My pants are getting looser. I am going to keep it up until I lose the extra weight that has crept up on me in the past couple of years. I didn't gain it overnight, so I shouldn't expect to lose it overnight.

I've been exercising to Jack Lalanne online when I can. It has really been effective in helping me get my foot and leg back to normal. I can run in place with no effort. To me that is an accomplishment. I was beginning to think that I was going to be slightly crippled for the remainder of my life. I guess it just takes time. My doctor told me that it would take about a year. Everything that I read online said that it should take from 6 months to 2 years. It's been almost a year and a half. My foot is still slightly swollen. I'm don't have to wear sneakers all of the time anymore. I have a couple of pairs of shoes that I wear almost every day. I'm hoping to go shoe shopping in about 6 weeks. I want a pair of Tory Burch Revas. I'm not sure what color, but it will have to be something that I can wear with a lot of different things.

It has been busy at work this week. Queenie is on vacation and I am covering for her. Of course, she goes on vacation when we have to get files ready for auditors. It's not too bad.

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday.

Congratulations, that is serious progress on South Beach, I know people who didn't last more than 2 weeks. I'm bummed your foot is still swollen, I had no idea it could take this long for it to be entirely healed.

Sending you a smile,

In your latest post, you said you were working on trying to blog more often:). Well, shame on me, i'm trying to work on visiting your blog more often!

Glad you are now able to exercise that foot. Keep it up and then get that little treat--Revas! I love the black or navy or bright green or orchid pink ones--they can be worn 365 days a year.
