Another update

Just a quick update...I'm still not back to exercising. Physio seems to be working a little bit, but not much. I see my doctor soon to discuss what I should do.

On a good note, I still seem to be losing weight! It's probably all muscle, but hey, I'll take what I can get!! This morning I weighed myself at 151.6 lbs! I'm not really going to count it yet until I see it a few more days in a row.

Basically since I stopped exercising to rest my back, I've been trying really hard not to eat too much. I've found a really great application for my iPhone that tracks calories and it has a huge database of foods so I don't have to go find the nutritional info myself. The application came up with a plan for me, based on my stats and in order to lose a lb per week, I'm to eat just over 1500 calories per day. So far it seems to be working (as long as I stay on track of course!). I also recently started taking these pills called Green - Lean. Or maybe it's Greenies...can't remember! Anyway, they are supposed to boost your metabolism and so far it seems to be working.
