Thanks to all for the wonderful support!!
Way to go SB!

I was having some pain this morning but TB offered to drive me to the pool and I got my 30 lengths (finally figured out it is 450 meters) in. It felt really good.

The pain is my sciatica and we have realized that the exercise is triggering it, but I have some things my physio taught me to help unpinch it so I am going to try that and hope to be at the pool on Wednesday though I will have to drive myself as TB goes back to work. I can't damage myself with the pool walking and as long as I treat the sciatic nerve properly, I will be fine.

Glad to here you made it to the pool. Water always seems to make things better.

I had a frustrating day at work. I work w my husband & some days are better than others. I went into the gym today for 2.5 hours. I got 50 mn on the elliptical, 40 mn on the bike then also did several weight machines.
Feeling much better now after a long hot shower.

I am unfortunately having a lot of pain in my side. I don't know if I will make it to the pool tomorrow. I think I might have to give it a rest and/or go see the doctor. I thought it was my sciatica which I usually get on the other side, but it is definitely different, probably muscular. I don't think I can do damage, but being in this much pain is not pleasant, specially when it is on top of my chronic pain.

At the doctor yesterday, I was 5 pound lighter than i was last time I was there.
All I have done is cut down on my sugar intake.

When I can get back into my suits, I will be happy.

Congratulations on your weight loss!! ......Maybe that is what I need to look at to make that darn scale go down.

I had deep water aerobics tonight.

Hope that pain gets better for you Laurie & it ends up just being muscular, you do not need that right now! I know my legs were pretty sore all day with the intense work out yesterday.

You both know that it is the carbs that put the weight on and it will be the lack of them that will take the weight off. Just step up your protein and you won't want the carbs so much.

Unless the laws of thermodynamics have changed, it's excess calories that cause weight gain. You can eat 100% carbs as long as they fall into your calorie range and weight loss will still happen.

I have been staying in my calorie range, or lower, & working out 5 days sometimes 6 days a week for the past 4 weeks & the scale isn't going down at all.

The body is a tricky thing, I know that mine is, it loses weight in its own time, on its own terms!
