I'm sick of this!

Wednesday, May 21, 2008

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.

    emoticon Don't ya hate it when 'Stuff' happens ( see my blog entry by that title....LOL) I too lost a long blog entry this week because I didn't do the copy thing and the site was just plain screwy...just said error and zilch...gone! Ah.....we live and learn.

    My back is ok, its my knees and ankles that don't like the excess weight!

    Hang in there keep tweaking and adjusting the lifestyle changes ( and read BOB's book) cause it sounds like YES-you ARE READY!

    Glad to have you in the group.
    Together we are going to succeed at turning our lives around!

    Be blessed!

    You are going to be fine- getting to onederland is a great goal- take it one step at a time- you can do this- and taking care of your back is great also- acupuncture is good- I have had some good successes with it- and educating yourself about backs is good also- You can do this- one day at a time- feel better.

    Just to be safe, every time you write a blog, here or anywhere else, copy and paste it before you hit post. ctrl+A then ctrl+C. If you lose the post, then start over and just hit ctrl+V and there it is, back again without you having to rewrite it all. :)

    Good luck on your weight loss. You can do it! Of course it will help your back. :D
