I agree with MOM4407. I've had lower back problems for years and, after taking 40 pounds off, the problems are almost non-existent. I still have to be careful, and see a chiropractor once a month, but I've seen a huge improvement. Keep up the good work!!

Glad for your success.

Go slow on the exercise. As the weight comes off I am sure your back will be feeling better.

I am an intelligent person.
I will control my emotions and not let my emotions control me.

We need each other.

emoticon Congratulations! I am only to day 9, and am happy with my almost 10 lb weight loss. Having been down this road many times before, I know that initially I always seem to drop off the weight pretty fast in the beginning. But I know a lot of it is fluid at first. The thing I am happiest about so far though, beyond the weight, is I have been able to keep my Blood Sugars fairly low (ie above 80 and under 150 always). As a Type 2 Diabetic, this is one of my goals as well as the weight loss. I have not been back in to my Doctor yet, but the other goal I have is to try and keep my Blood Pressure around 110/70 to help my my kidneys out (I have some renal insufficiency). I also am happy to find some great chair exercises I like doing and can do at home, and not have to go to a gym (it is cold here in Colorado and I live quite a way away fro any gym).

My journey begins with one step....and I am taking that step today!

Congrats on the weight you lost and all the positive changes you are making along the way!

Well, roughly three weeks now, and I'm continuing to lose, so not going to complain. I will likely weigh myself tomorrow to get the most current reading, but as of a couple of days ago, I was down 23 pounds. I wouldn't object to being around the 30 pound mark when I weigh-in again, but will not be disappointed if there is only another pound or two gone--after all, it's already 23 pounds less than I did around Christmas.

Today I'll actually start doing some real exercise. I have been having issues with my back of late, so my exercise has been limited to taking "walking breaks" at work ( I have a desk job, so getting up and moving around feels great some days), and relatively quick and easy work outs here and there. This weekend, I am planning on getting back to Tae-Bo, starting with the instructional/basic work out. Tae-Bo is more of an all over work out, which will provide a balanced attack on the fat, although I am looking for core exercises right now...I'm tired of the 'Bubble in the middle" and really want to find things that will address that issue.

And, for additional support/motiviation, etc., I'm joining with some fellow employees for our version of "The Biggest Loser". Still waiting on additional details, but sounds like it will be fun.

Life is the future, not the past.
