On the path to Recovery...

I was absent from SP for a whole year. I started with me going away for back surgery (March '11) and the recovery, ups & downs and overall life took over.

I have just returned to work (March '12) after spending a month in a Rehabilitation centre completing a Chronic Pain Program (which I would highly recommend to anyone living with chronic pain!).
I have also lost over 15 pounds since the fall doing the Body by Vi 90-day challenge. Feel free to contact me if you would like ...

I have also lost over 15 pounds since the fall doing the Body by Vi 90-day challenge. Feel free to contact me if you would like to hear more about it. I did this not counting calories, not exercising and without changing my eating habits. I just didn't have the willpower at that point.
I am now starting a new 90-day challenge as of March 17th 2012 where I will continue to take my supplements, but will add some light exercise (following a plan safe for my back) and I will enter the foods I eat periodically to be able to see what I eat and hold myself accountable. I will not focus as much on calories and more on nutrition.

I hope that I will find old friends succeeding. Feel free to contact me for some extra motivation, nutrition or fitness tips (I have completed many courses and seminars on the subjects pre-injury). I love helping others!!

Hi! My name is Julie and I am 3 weeks post surgery. I have gone through a similar situartion as yours and I am fluctuating from being hopeful and depressed. However, I am constantly recording all of my food, drinking my water, taking my vitamins. I am only walking 1/2 to 1 mile a day and lifting minimal amounts of weight. I get soooo frustrated because at 44yo I was very active most of my adult life!! Even though I get sooo discouraged I am plugging along and doing what I can to keep myself up. Hope all is well.
