I have lived alone for 3 weeks, there are times when i am very lonely. Mostly i am happy, I have started my exercises again, gained a lot of weight over the year I lived with my kids. My scale spent the year in the car trunk so needless to say it is not working I will have to get another one day, but for now i will concentrate on getting the exercises going again, get my eating under control and watch for non scale victories. What I weigh is not important its how I feel that counts. Right now I am tired and in a lot of pain, but I can and will fix that.
When the doctor says exercise and good diet will take the pain away, I was angry, why can't I just get medication like other people take a pill be done and not have to change anything. For me that is not possible anti inflammatory medications cause my kidneys to stop working that includes over the counter as well as prescription medication. I can take no more than 2 aspirin a day with out causing my self problems. So I set out in the beginning to prove he was wrong, diet and exercise can not help pain and i proved him right at one time i had way more energy and was completely pain free after only a couple of months eating right and exercising. So why did I stop, don't know.
I studied nutrition in college, I know how important water is to a body, but know is not doing so as of today I am back on track, (started yesterday actually) going to stay on track one day at a time. My goal is to become pain free, if i loose weight I will be excited, but if not I don't hurt and I can walk that is my goal.
