I would definitely go to your doctor...I have a bulging disc (every now and then it pops back out), and can't do V Shaped things (ie sit ups) but can do other things......

A physiotherapist could definitely help you.

Goals:
145 lbs by april
Be able to run 10 km by june
Look amazing in my wedding dress!

Hi Sharon! Sorry to hear you are having some back trouble! It would really be best to talk with your doctor and get a referral to a physical therapist who can give you a specific program that is safe and effective for you. They would be able to look at your health history, but also assess you in person, which is not something we are able to do and without doing that when you have health conditions like this, it isn't safe to recommend any particular exercises. I would hate for you to try something and find that you further injure yourself. We do have the Limited Mobility resource center that you may find helpful: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/lifestyle_cen

, but I still recommend talking with your doctor beforehand.

Swimming is always a good option. It takes a lot of pressure off your joints and gives you the workout you are looking for.

I am wondering what kind of exercise I can do. I have been told no bending push and pulling. Also cannot lift more than 5 pounds. I have two bulging discs in my low back pressing against the sarcastic nerve. Since I started my spark journey four years old I have lost 12 pounds and have kept it off. But now I am afraid of regaining it due to not being active.

I look forward to your response.

Sharon
