    Hi's been months since I've been on here. In May I found out that I needed to have back surgery. I tried the diet & exercise, therapy, and steroid injections, and finally had the surgery on Oct. 1st. I had so much pain, and my therapist & neurosurgeon limited what physical activities I could do. I stuck to the dieting, but the pain and frustration finally took over, and I gave up on it all! The surgery went well, and I'm down 10lbs. since having it. I am determined to get back on here and get back on track. I can only walk, but I wasn't allowed to do that prior to the surgery so I am excited to have my cardio exercise back! I am experiencing nerve pain, which I'm told is often common after my type of surgery (4 screws, 2 rods, & fusing). My first follow-up appt. is Oct. 30th, so I'm excited to see the hardware that was installed and come up with a solution to the nerve pain so I can finally sleep at night! I was so determined when I joined, and I'm looking forward to getting back on! Thank you for your support! emoticon

    When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached,
    don't adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.

    Just passing by to say hello and give some encouragement.

    You CAN do this!

    You have done what you could.
    Some blunders and absurdities may have crept in.
    Forget them as soon as you can."
