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.


  1. Great job on the diet part. Don't rush into the exercise until you're better! Great job!

  2. Hey Heather... just checking in to see how everything's going.

  3. Hi Annie,
    I'm still resting my back. I've been referred to a specialist so I'm just waiting to see him...which could take a while. I'm also going to be starting physio through the hospital since that's paid for and I've run out of coverage for private physio.
    The way things are going, I think it's going to be quite a while before I start up something like P90X again. I'll need to take it easy for the next while and just do light exercising. I'm still doing pretty well on the diet front though. I still haven't reached the 140's yet, but that's my goal for now. I am looking much smaller now though and have lots of compliments in that department!
    Thanks for thinking of me!!
