I have had a weight problem ever since I was a child. I remember how focused my family was on it. When I was in fifth grade, I met a pediatrician who got me a diet I could manage myself and I became pretty empowered and lost a great deal of weight. When I went to college, when most people gain weight I lost and kept it off pretty well until after my first child. About the age of 40, I mentally became tired and threw in the towel. Unfortunately the pounds started to sneak up on me. At 55 I got on the scale and realized I could be considered obese. Also my blood pressure was up and my liver enzymes and my calcium levels were out of whack. I knew I had to gain control again, or I won't be able to enjoy my grandchildren.

Yes, my Chiropractor told me about the iced coke bottle, when I had heel and arch pain. He did it for his foot problems too. I forgot to tell you to do the rolling for about 10-20 min. - you can do it straight on the foot or with a sock on. It felt better straight on the foot for me. Mine was cleared up in a matter of days! Hope it feels better soon! emoticon

Thanks Barb,

The heel feels better today, but let's see what happens tomorrow when I have to go to work and do all that walking. That will be the true test. Someone on one of the threads here said that there's an article about the heel pain on SP. I'm going to check it out.

Take care of that knee. I know what you mean, it seems like we take care of one thing and then something else happens. The pitfalls of getting older. We just need to find a way to turn things around. If you find it please let me know. LOL.

Have a wonderful Friday and coming weekend.

Chris

Glad you were ok after that fall. We really need to be careful especially as we get older. Hate to say that, but it s reality.

I'm at a year round school that's why we go until July 19th. We go back on Sept. 3rd. Next school year the entire district is supposed to change to a modified year round schedule, even the middle and high schools. They have been talking about for several years, lets see if they finally follow through with it.

Now my left heel is bothering me, not sure what the heck I did. So trying to stay off it as much as I can to see if it will get better and the pain will go away. This was not in my plan for the summer. Wish me luck. Wanted to be in onederland for the family reunion at the end of August.

Take care,
Chris
