Rachel116's Journal, 23 February 2015

Simply picked up my 6 month old baby and threw my back out----worst pain of my life not to mention loss of function of my legs. After going back to the doctor today I know where my mind HAS to be focused. I have a compressed disc and was told that I have to lose 55 lbs in the next 3 months or I'm highly risking rupturing said disc which means more pain and agony for the rest of my life or back surgery or a combination of both. Sometimes it takes a major scare before reality sets in. I want to be healthier. I NEED to be healthier. My children need me and I still have a long life ahead as long as I treat my body right and stop abusing it. So meal planners have been printed and menu planning has begun. Tomorrow is grocery shopping day and Wednesday is Day 1 of the rest of my life of HEALTHY---I'm done feeling miserable all the time and putting my kids at risk of not having their mom as long as possible because I'm being lazy and selfish. Changes commence!

Thank you all for your support---still another day of feeling terrible but I did get out and go grocery shopping for induction friendly foods and everything is in the freezer for the next couple weeks worth of meals and tomorrow's Alice Spring's Chicken is in the slow cooker---added a bit of a twist because if I can't cook it in a slow cooker, it may not get cooked--simply because time is a rare commodity at this house.
