I haven't been in a great place. But those of you who have left messages and gifts, don't think I have not appreciated it. I have. But I felt like I had nothing to offer. I definitely have no inspiration left for others right now. Unless it is the fact that my weight probably stopped me doing the things I was enjoying so much.
Turns out I have spinal arthritis and of course weight loss will help with that. But that wasn't the cause of my issues. I believe I did do a lot of injury in the fall down the stairs which caused me to be lopsided. Being lopsided caused me to tear or rip a small muscle in my back during ballet class. But worse even than that is tendonitis and hip bursitis. That put an end to everything.
But here's the thing. I know if I don't lose weight the pain won't go away, and in pain I can't exercise. It's a vicious circle. So feeling so low I told my husband I need his support and I need him to help me believe in myself that I can do it. He replied, why? You know you can do it, you have done it before you can do it again. Bingo! Really? That simple. And I supposed it was. And that is when I vowed to get some kind of an exercise program going and set up a rewards system and come back to Sparkpeople.
