another change, or rather going back to the beginning again…

Tonight I went back to Weight Watchers. Not because I want to be on a diet. Because I need the support. I tried to do it online for a while but I just am not motivated by myself to do it. I need support.

So, I’m going to give it another go, am going to go to the Tuesday night meeting (and if I can’t make it I’ll go to Thursday in Velp), I’m going to log in daily and I have the app now on my phone.

There must be some point in my life when I can reach my goal weight again, right?

Not a change, but a diagnosis –

Today I went to the physiotherapist and found out that not only is my left leg “shorter” than my right – most likely due to being out of whack – but I seem to have an issue with my SI joint. What’s an SI joint?


I knew I had pain (and have had for MONTHS) but I thought I just pulled a muscle. Actually my back is constantly jacked up because of the issue I have with the SI joint – basically not having the mobility that I need on the left side makes the right side try to compensate! I’ll go to manual therapy a couple of times starting next week and then back to physio where my same guy who helped me with my knee will be once again helping me along the road to recovery.

Good news and bad news –

I actually have a 24KM run in a few weeks. I’m planning on a DNF that way it’s a bonus if I make it. That’s the bad news. Good news is that I may actually be healed (and have lost weight) by the time October rolls around, when I will do another Half Marathon – this time in Brussels with my friend Nathalie.

And… one more thing –

I had to cancel out of the Rotterdam marathon (well I did the first 10K as part of a relay, and at some point I will write about that) but I signed up for the Paris Marathon 2015 lottery and GOT IN. You know what that means, right?


That’s right, come hail or high water I will be running the Paris Marathon next year. Did I ever tell you the story about how I dreamt of moving to Paris when I was 10 years old?

    OMG Paris marathon! I may have just squealed with glee in my office here at work. (Oops)
    Sorry to hear about your SI joint – but hopefully you’ll get that thing figured out and soon! And is it totally selfish that, when you said you have the WW app, I was like “Wait! You’re not leaving the MFP app,are you??” You’re not, right? I’d miss you.

      haha I think I also squealed!
      I hope the therapy works well and actually quickly!
      Don’t worry – I’m not leaving MFP :)

  2. good for you for going back to what you know works!
