My Storyi underwent the lapband surgery in march of 09 in greenville nc. the surgeon was wonderful and still continues to be supportive in my goal weight. i developed fibromyalgia at some point. having the muscle spasms and constant migraines i contributed to a ruptured disc in the c7 was actually the fibro causing most of the pain. the issue with the herniated c7 was fixable in hopes that the pain would get better and i can get back to working out as intense as i started out. when my dr told me i had fibro i was devastated knowing the pain would never go away, it will decrease but the flare ups will come and go. i have been struggling with not over doing tasks to prevent the pain and spasms. it has not been easy decreasing my workout. it feels like someone is teaching you how to walk when you know how to run. it is a process and getting back to where i was is a battle. i have to get back to counting my calories more often. lessening my calorie intake according to my activities. winter is the hardest for me.
My Goals For This Year:i started out at 255 and am now at 208, i was at 196 and so im up some from about 6 months ago. now that i know what i am doing wrong, i have to level out the calories verses the activites to my goal weight of 144
