My Journey #41 -- Update - 5/28/13 -- New Outlook
Tuesday, May 28, 2013
It's been several months since I added a blog to my series so thought I'd update youall. I still have not lost any of the weight I gained this past year and my health problems continue to plague me. During the spring challenge I was unable to participate on the Lemon Team (BLC) which I had been a member of for sometime because I was unable to keep up with the requirements.
Thankfully, I still had my other teams which continue to encourage me along the way, especially the STOP team, Wildflower's Live-It, One-der-Land Wannabies, Daily Weigh-In and several others. Thank you to those folks who have continued to encourage and support me along the way.
Regarding the Biggest Loser summer challenge, I opted to go on a different team and have been warmly welcomed by the Dazzling Diamonds. I really did good last year on a BLC team I was on so am really looking forward to making progress with the Diamonds. I just hope they will be understanding of my health issues and that I cannot/nor am able to do many of the physical activities that we may be asked to do.
Right now, F.Y.I., I have severe spinal stenosis (doctor's words, not mine) and because of this, I have horrific sciatica pain that shoots down both my legs like a bolt of lightening. I have had a number of spinal epidural shots in my spinal canal this year, but they have done nothing to relieve the pain. Right now I'm considering a new procedure where a wire is run down the length of your spine and the doctor said to think of it as a "pacemaker" for your back. We'll see.
Just want to wish all my Spark friends a happy and wonderful summer with the wish that you all accomplish your summer goals and challenges. See you at the scales!
