About a week and a half ago I injured the right side of my back. I have no idea what I did, but I'm hoping that I never do it again. I was struggling so much that I was willing to use my husband's back brace to give me more support. My husband works on boat restorations and engines and all sorts of messy things which have found their way onto his back brace. Plus, the poor thing is so stretched out. It's like a worn out black gertle (?spelling?) with suspenders. Anyway, I hurt and I felt like I looked ridiculous. But I did wear a black shirt to kind of disguise the back brace. What is the UPSIDE to all of this?
My daughter looked at the backside of me and said, "WOW Mom! You look great from the back. You can really see your weight loss with that back brace on!" I was shocked and also pleased. She suggested a photo so that I could see the results of being steadfast with staying within my calorie range on Spark and exercising. The photo below is the backside of me!
Currently, I am feeling great! The back pain is almost non-existent and I did buy a new back brace for myself so that during these days of healing, I wasn't as self-conscious.
