A victory with portion sizes

Had a wonderful (unexpected) loss of a whole kg this week. Given I'm not doing any much exercise, and haven't been a tracking saint, I was a little surprised but not going to over think it too much :-).

I have noticed that my appetite seems to have finally matched what my portion sizes should be. It's only taken 3 years of measuring everything! I must say it's a slightly crazy feeling to polish off a small sandwich and not be consciously thinking about what else I can have or how hungry I am. Viva la revolution!

Toes are mostly healed (looking presentable anyway) and I'm ready to start the evening walks again at the end of the week. Am having an Epsom salts foot soak tonight while typing this and it feels good. Thoroughly recommend it - turns out Mum and my podiatrist might be on to something! Hope you and your feet are having a great week, toodles!

Encouragement from strangers

Last week I posted about my manky toe issues and Enz from Downward TrENZ made an encouraging comment about going to have it seen to which simply ended with 'Go. Go. Go'. That really helped me get my arse into gear so thank you Enz! I made an appointment with my Dr for Friday - he sent me straight next door to the podiatrist and there was a scalpel and pair of pliers being waived about before I could freak out and run to my car.

There was brusing and 2 ingrown toenails - I won't scare you with pictures. Main toe is now all bandaged and I'm not to wear closed toes shoes for 2 weeks. Weigh in was a 200gram gain this week. Could have been much worse!

Toe Tapping stuff

I have sore big toes. And most unusually for me I'm not hurrying off to self diagnose via the internet. I think I'm scared what the big www will tell me. D has had an ingrown toenail before and when he finally had it seen to he required a week off work - eek!

I don't want whatever it is to get that bad but I'm kind of weird about my toes and while they're covered with polish I can pretend that everything is normal. Until I put my walking shoes on of course. Ignorance isn't bliss! Am hoping that by typing this my sub conscious will somehow open me up to get them seen to. Who do you go see though? A doctor or a podiatrist? I can see I'm going to have to Google after all...
