Feeling So Much Better Now

Thanks to sofa snuggles with Pooch (and a huge ice pack), large doses of ibuprofen, and physical therapy exercises, I am pleased to update my last post. I am feeling pretty good. My back has settled down and only hurts if I stand for a while. And, thanks to my vigilant food journaling, I've lost 2.5 pounds. That's a really good start.

I'm planning to start walking again on Saturday - just a 10 minute stroll. There's no hurry to get back in shape, and rushing it will just land me flat on my back again. So, 10 minutes a day will do just fine for now.

Thanks to all of you who left notes of encouragement - they helped a lot.

I'll be back on Sunday with a new What's Cooking post. Have a great weekend...

Glad to know you are feeling better and the diet is working.
Be gentle with yourself and be careful with your back.

So glad you are feeling better!! Great job on your 2.5 lbs gone!! And South Beach and WW... great combo! I did WW (and used some FANTASTIC South Beach recipes while doing it) after having my babies... I lost 13 lbs after baby #1, and with baby #2, I went from a 16 to a 6. It seems to hard to lose weight at times, but man, is it worth it! I feel so healthy now! Well, when I'm not binging on the last of the Easter candy...

Oh no! Hope you feel better soon! I am so happy for you on the weight loss.. I am still battling mine! I think a cup of good hot soup will also help ease the pain! Take care and get well soon!
