A Miracle

Wednesday, April 12, 2017

I have lost 13 pounds in the past 2 1/2 months. I haven't changed my eating at all. But I have been able to be more active. I've had so much back pain these past couple of years - literally in pain every moment of every day, some days worse than others. I walk around the house a lot, because it hurts to sit for more than 15 minutes or so, but I walk very slowly. I started pain management treatment in January and couldn't tell much difference, if any, until last week when I had my 3rd epidural steroid injection. Finally some relief! The pain isn't gone, but most days it's much better. I've been walking outside, still not cardio-level, but more briskly and for longer periods. I've also been able to do some gardening, which I've always enjoyed, in short intervals. At last week's doctor visit, I noticed I had lost 8 pounds since the February visit. Since last week, I've lost 5 more. It's so encouraging!
