The Lows and the Highs, currently at least!

I gained all my weight back that I lost due to being in the ICU. But thanks to the info that Diane and Carl keep sharing with me, and the discussions here, I am sure I can accomplish real weight loss. I am also realizing that I have had anorexia for a long time and now dealing with a lot of inappropriate eating. Maybe even a whole weird relationship to/with food and eating.
It's also very strange to now at this time in my life have to loose weight, and not not have to add drugs to increase my appetite.
On the positive side, I am making great strides in PT, I guess this is what Carl is talking about. I started really participating in Drum Fit, the instructor is a really neat lady into a lot of the alternative hearing techniques that we're into as well. Bottom line is Zumba and Drum Fit have been having a very positive effect on my energy and PT.
Yesterday the main euro-physical therapist on my case asked me a bunch of questions from a questionnaire asking my percentage of confidence while walking, under all kinds of different circumstances. Like walking up an incline ramp, and down a series of steps facing Front. These have been real fear spaces for me - up to this point.
Yesterday in PT after walking 160 feet, with the walking stick, I walked up an inline ramp about 40 feet and then down four steps facing front with minimal guidance! Well it blew everybody minds, maybe even my own! I did feel good!!!
