I have watched friends have babies and lose the wait- I still don't have the body I had before my son...who is now 9!

True- I was 37 when I had him...I was bed bound for 3 months...I gained 70 lbs...he was 10.3lbs at birth...I was huge when I was pregnant...I am in perimenopause....

okay - here I go again...those are all the excuses I tell myself and others- the truth also is that I restrict and then binge on sweets... like to eat after my son goes to bed at 8:30... could eat an entire bag of dark chocolate chips in about 4 days...

No more excuses!

    Hey Lori how is it going? Just wanted to let you know that I will be having surgery in about a month. I hope it turns out well so I can be pain free. The diet has been going okay but not great. To many meds that keep the water weight on. Hope to be back in the saddle soon.

    I will be seeing a couple of surgeons over the next few weeks to see what they advise. I am a little nervous but I can not live with this constant pain anymore. I hope I find out something good that is going to help me to be back to normal. I am still eating the BFC way but not been able to do any exercise. So I just have to focus on getting better then once I am better I will be back 100%. Sorry things are a little stressful for you right now. But sounds like you are making the right choices. Take care my friend and I hope things slow down a little bit for you.

    Sad thing Lori I work in a physical therapy office and we also have a chiropractor and acup and massage therapy. I have been having treatment for months and it has just gotten worse. I have extra large transverse process on my C-7(extra ribs) that are pinching my nerves. Causing severe shoulder and arm pain also my circulation in my arm is getting worse. They mentioned surgery yesterday because they dont feel the injection therapy will work. I am starting to feel a little depressed and dont know what to do.

    Lori, thanks for checking in on me. I have been a little discouraged. The injection did not work and I have been in more pain then before the injection. They mentioned possible surgery but have to have a MRI next. Makes it a little hard to really put a 100% into my diet. I am still doing the BFC but not been able to do any exercise. Steroids dont seem to be doing good for my weight either. I pray this does not last forever. Take care my friend.

    Hey Lori, How have you been doing? I had my injection last week and still have some problems. It has put my exercise routine on hold and still not losing any weight. I finally had to give up the spark team since I could not spend the amount of time on the computer that it takes. I still plan on checking in with everyone to see how they are doing. Hope all is well with you.
