It's been a little while since I've updated this space. A few things have changed...finally got my weight down to under 200 lbs. I now hover between 196 and 200 lbs, depending on the day. I'm happy to have lost this weight, but still need to lose another 15 lbs.
About 3 weeks ago, I had some extreme back pain. Went to pick up a 1-yr old baby and, of course, didn't bend my legs. Picked her up with arms fully extended and back bent forward. The second I lifted her, my back went out. After three days, the extreme pain didn't subside. I went to the doctor and got three medications (anti-inflammatory, muscle relaxant and pain killers). It took about 5 more days until the pain started to slowly go away.
