I'm sick of this!

I can't believe I just wrote out a huge big blog and it deleted because I had a bracket that they called html. O M G
Now that I purged everything once, I'm guessing the second round will be a tad shorter!
I'm sick of this. I throw my back out at least once per year. Every year. Sometimes twice a year. And I know the reason, too! It's the weight, stupid! You can't throw a 150 pound person on your back and run around like a skinny person and try to do what skinny people do and not expect some sort of repercussions! Duh! What am I? Blonde? Oh right...I am. But I'm smarter than this. The first time it happens, oh, I should really do something about this, this really hurts. The next time, wow, it happened again, I should really do something about this. Third, fourth, fifth...etc....shouldn't I be getting a clue? I realize weight loss isn't exactly easy. No, it is easy to do, it's difficult to make those easy changes. I mean - expend more calories than you take in. How hard can that be?
The first two days of pain I was a good girl. Sat around watching TV or slept. Good girl! Then came Monday, my 30th birthday. I actually felt my age, plus some, because of my back. But...I was feeling better than I had the previous two days, so I went out and did things for my birthday, very carefully. Yeah, cut to this morning (the morning after!), I could barely walk to the bathroom it hurt so bad. I decided to take matters into my own hands and went to see an acupuncturist. This was my first visit to one of these and I have to say it's a pretty big deal because needles freak me out. I don't know that the session did any real good, so I'm going back Friday to make a better determination. All I know is I had seven needles in one arm and five on the other and I looked like a freakin' porcupine! Creepy! But relaxing at the same time?
I'm digging up all the books and how-to's I can to help prevent back pain. Exercises, stretches, gadgets, I'm all about it. This is not going to happen again, at least not because of my weight or poor core strength. If someday I'm moving a 400 pound desk and have a back strain, I'll understand. I'm not going to let things within my control get out of control anymore. I just need to hurry my caboose on up and get under 200 pounds and make these back problems a thing of the past. This is IT.
