Cabin Fever....ALREADY.

This is my world view now. 
Only one week down and I'm already having nightmares that Doctor Chaotica has captured me. He then proceeded to put me-NOT in a CELL- but in a huge contraption that looked like a hospital morgue body cooler, but the body coolers were the size and shape of a huge bank of oversized rural mailboxes. Just big enough to be placed IN, but no room to wiggle so much as a finger or toe. 
He said I had to be placed in one of those and my punishment time was 4-6 weeks. 
Sound Familiar?
 The exact length of time that I have to stay on crutches and not put weight on my broken foot.
I told Doctor Chaotica that I couldn't possibly do that because I was claustraphobic and I would DIE if I couldn't move around and begged him to put me in a cell.
Of course he wouldn't and I woke up gasping for breath as they closed the door on that tiny little breadbox of a punishment hole.

I'm going to go nuts before this is done and dusted!

On the upside, I was able to wear a dress I had tried on a month ago and was too tight to get on OR back off once I saw it was still too small. I was in floods of tears.
Today it went on easily, went off easily- and then back on again for the day!! 
I figure I have lost at least 10 lbs(almost a stone)
 in the past month for the dress to be this loose on me now.

I guess all that upper body workout propelling myself around on those stupid crutches does have its benefits after all.

And BTW- if anyone tells you that one little change doesn't have that big an effect on your diet- they're LYING.
When I first put my mind to losing this weight I stopped drinking regular sugary soda and only drank water or Diet Coke/(or any sugar free soda).
 I dropped 15 lbs in the first month and that's the ONLY change I had made at that point. 
One small change at a time.
