One of my first 5k's in 2010. I had to stop walking for two years due to leg and back pain. After being out for 4 weeks going thru physical therapy I've started walking again. I hope that I can build my endurance and soon walk another 5k.
Thank you for the comment you made on my blog. I wish you luck with your weight loss quest. We can do it! My weight is like a ball and chain. I need to remove excess pounds iu earnest. I have gone through a lot of phases in my recovery from compulsive overeating. I have had a lot of help myself. Lately, though, I have the most support I have ever had. I can talk to several friends and family about my eating problems and try to work it through. I have a nutrition counselor at an eating disorder clinic. I have had other ones but she is the best. My first counselor was great, too. She helped me over a lot of humps in early recovery. She is now working at a school. Hope you find the direction you need here on Spark and in other places. Take care, Karen 1531 days ago
