Weigh In Report

Well I knew it was going to be nasty...as evident from my post yesterday, it was a bad weekend and I'm dealing with some significant back pain. I am hoping that this is only a temporary set back.

Last week's weight: 293.2
This week's weight: 299.4
Gain: 6.2
Total loss: -14.4

Ouch, that's a lot. Accept and move on, not much I can do about it now. just focus on the long term goal. I am thankful that I didn't creep back up to the 300's, but it's too close for comfort. I was unable to stay for the meeting this week, due to my crazy work schedule this week.

Update on my back, my chiropractor introduced me to a product called BioFreeze, and she spoke highly about the product, so I am giving it a try, so far, so good. I like the ease of use with the product. I still need to ice my back, and it's tough to get anything accomplished when you are trying to take it easy and ice your back.

I am able to sit without being in much pain, I feel like the inflammation is going down. I still get a twinge of pain if I over do anything or if it's getting time to take more Excedrin, so I am stretching more and getting a bit more use out of it, but still babying my back just a bit.

I am a bit discouraged with the gain this week, but I know that there is nothing good that can come from sulking in my misery, best thing I can do is control the here and now. The past is in the past and it cannot be undone.

Don't be hard on yourself, you know you can do this, you have lost 14 lbs already, that's fantastic!

I love BioFreeze! I used it all the time when I played field hockey in high school. It works sooooo well!

Hope you feel better soon!

You got this. You got this. You got this. I know when I hurt my hip and couldn't run, I really watched what I was eating and I didn't gain weight, even lost a little. Hugs, feel better.
