I did it. I finally stepped on the scale..........
Sunday, June 05, 2011
Yesterday marked one year after my FIRST cervicle spine surgery. I haven't weighed myself since about last August, which was when I had my second spine surgery. I have gained 20 lbs! I knew it happened, I just didn't want to step on the scale and see the damage I have caused and all the hard work I threw out the window. It could have been worse, I guess. I was honestly expecting the scale to show that I gained more like 30-40 lbs, since now everything I own is tight or doesn't fit at all. Sooooo, here I am...half heartedly. I HAVE to get control or else. My lower back has also been hurting me, so I can't gain anymore or I will have pain from the top of my spine to the bottom of my spine - and that I just cannot live with.
I am going to start with Leslie Sansone WATP 1 and 2 mile dvd. I know I have to start all over with exercising. I was doing 60 minutes of elliptical/daily, but that was a loooong time ago. I hope I do not get weak and discouraged.
