In Other News.....

.....I lost another pound. I'm down to 198. I walked an extra mile or so last night, but hurt my foot in the process. I don't know what I did to it, but it almost feels like a non-stop cramp across the top of my foot. I've had this same hurt a few months back. It healed on it's on when I stayed off my foot, so I guess I need to ease up on the walking for a few days.



  1. awesome loss sorry about the bum hoof...

  2. I LOOOOOVE ur shirt!!!!!

    Great job on the loss!
    Hmm and get your foot checked just in case? Hope you feel better soon. <3

  3. I think it may be Plantar fascitis:

    Plantar fasciitis (say “PLAN-ter fash-ee-EYE-tus”) is the most common cause of heel pain. The plantar fascia is the flat band of tissue (ligament) that connects your heel bone to your toes. It supports the arch of your foot. If you strain your plantar fascia, it gets weak, swollen, and irritated (inflamed). Then your heel or the bottom of your foot hurts when you stand or walk.

    Plantar fasciitis is common in middle-aged people. It also occurs in younger people who are on their feet a lot, like athletes or soldiers. It can happen in one foot or both feet.

    What causes plantar fasciitis?

    Plantar fasciitis is caused by straining the ligament that supports your arch. Repeated strain can cause tiny tears in the ligament. These can lead to pain and swelling. This is more likely to happen if:

    ■Your feet roll inward too much when you walk (excessive pronation).
    ■You have high arches or flat feet.
    ■You walk, stand, or run for long periods of time, especially on hard surfaces.
    ■You are overweight.
    ■You wear shoes that don't fit well or are worn out.
    ■You have tight Achilles tendons or calf muscles.

    What are the symptoms?

    Most people with plantar fasciitis have pain when they take their first steps after they get out of bed or sit for a long time. You may have less stiffness and pain after you take a few steps, but your foot may hurt more as the day goes on. It may hurt the most when you climb stairs or after you stand for a long time.

  4. Katie...Yep, I think you're right. I got online earlier and thought that might be it.

    Do you know much about it? Have you had it?
