I haven't talked about my weight loss recently... and it's because I've been gaining some of it back.
It all started when the symptoms of what I now know is a herniated disc in my neck, started show it's self. In July I went through a period of time where I thought was either having a heart attack or a panic attack. I still feel that way sometimes but now I know it's all side affects of the herniated disc. It was a scary time.
I quit smoking too in early July, and was put on steroids for a week, so that added to the initial gain. And I would have been fine with that initial 5 to 7lb gain. But I think now I'm somewhere up to around 15 or 20lbs gained. I won't weigh myself, at least not yet (waiting until I feel like I'm losing again). But I have measured and I've gained at least an inch in each the 4 major areas. Some of it is due to the gain, some of it is due to being unable to exercise.
On Friday January 6th I'm having a steroid injected into the herniated disc. I'm hoping that will alleviate the symptoms enough so that I can at least start walking again.
So today, after a trip to so see Chipwrecked, I will start my food prep for the week and grab my copy of DANDR and get this fat burning machine back into gear!
