It's been a couple of months and an 8 lb weight gain since I've come on the SPARK PEOPLE web site. I've been going through some unresolved physical setbacks. I started getting pain in my female groin area around February and have not worked out since. I've been to all kinds of doctors with not results. I even went to a gyno to see if it was a female problem. Glad to say all clear there :). I finally saw an orthapedic doctor this past friday and may know soon what's going on. The doctor thinks I may have a laberal tear in my hip joint. That causes all the symptoms I am having. MRI NEXT WEEK...to be continued. I hope that will be the end so I can start a new beginning. Although I've gained some weight back :( I am not dissapointed in myself. I feel better at being positive then putting myself down. In March 29th I celebrated my 1st year of spark people by crying about my pain but at the same time I reflected on all the things I've learned while on this long journey. I know there will be setbacks. I'm sure there are many more to come. But as long as I realize that everyday is a chance to start over I'll have learned something, right? Last week I started trying a little raw eating. For 5 out of the 7 days I had to meals of only fruits and veggies and mostly raw foods. Dinner I ate my usual. This week I started to eat the same fruits and veggies but in all forms. I've had 10 servings of fruits and veggies today before I even had dinner. Woohoo..Now to figure out how not to be constipated from all the fiber. Any ideas? I have joined the 5% challenge once again. Although I've never lost 5% I hope that someday I'll figure that out also. So for now I will continue to move forward and atleast eat the best I can even if I am unable to excercise for now. So my friends, sorry to have abondaned everyone. I hope that I can be me again really soon. (I feel like a junkie cause I'm missing my runs so bad). My goal was to train for a marathon in August but right now I can barely walk, sit, lay down, without feeling any pain. The hardest part for me has been going to work in pain daily without taking meds. (Don't like taking pain meds). It's been rough but I WILL PREVAIL! Good luck to all in your goals. For now my goal is to try moving forward.
