Its been a month today.
I started this program after waking up and being unable to get out of bed because of my back. I've had a bad back for years and have had 2 surgeries including a spinal fusion. Usually by being careful I have been able to manage my pain and stiffness. But that morning I just couldn't move. I called in sick, which I haven't done in over a year and worked on trying to manage my back pain. After ibuprofen and heat and gentle stretching I took a gentle walk. In the afternoon I read the newspaper which had an article about SP so I looked up the site and that was it. I've been somewhat of an addict ever since. I've lost 9 pounds
and feel so much better.
I am learning new things daily and have made several spark friends. Thank you SP!
