Hi guys! Its been a month and a half since my last blog. I'm down another 15 lbs so I'm on track. I have until November 10th until we board so I think I can meet my goal! That's about 40 days from now. I still am not exercising as much as I'd like to but I am trying to accompany my husband to the gym a couple times a week. Because of my F.M. and sciatica I find it really hard to bounce back from a workout. I feel fine when I bike and use the weight machines but after I get home and for the next few days my whole body is in such pain, and I'm not talking about muscle soreness. Radiating pain down my legs, deep aches in my hips and my ankles and knees can't even support me going down stairs. I have to lean on the railing as much as possible. This is nothing new to me. I can say that I've gotten used to it as much as someone can but I just wish I was like everyone else and benefited from exercising and felt good afterwards or at least didn't feel as if my body was attacking itself and punishing me for something as simple as walking! Its frustrating but I'm trying to stay positive and I didn't mean for this blog to bring me or anyone else down but this is what keeps me from stepping it up a notch and getting more fit. So now all I can really do is try to push through the pain, track my intakes and deal with it.
On the positive side...I hope to be under 200 this week! I haven't been since 2007 and its a huge step for me. I know that will help give me more motivation and a whole new set of goals to achieve!
Thank you to everyone who is supporting me and I hope each and every one of you stay strong and push through our toughest struggles to be victorious in the end!
