J's Journey

I have been on this weight loss journey for awhile now. I lost sixty pounds several years ago. I had a bulging disc in my neck which slowed me down and I gained back twenty. I've tried three times working with personal trainers at three different gyms. Each time I ended up back in therapy. Mostly my own fault because I have trouble saying "No, I am not physically able to do that exercise, or lift that much weight." I'm afraid they will think I am just a whiney fat person making excuses. ...
I have been on this weight loss journey for awhile now. I lost sixty pounds several years ago. I had a bulging disc in my neck which slowed me down and I gained back twenty. I've tried three times working with personal trainers at three different gyms. Each time I ended up back in therapy. Mostly my own fault because I have trouble saying "No, I am not physically able to do that exercise, or lift that much weight." I'm afraid they will think I am just a whiney fat person making excuses. So I will push myself, knowing my own limitations. I've lost seven pounds so far, but have a long way to go...
Update: 7/24/2013
Spark coach felt it was time to update my spark page, so here goes. I jumped back on here in May and am doing fairly well. I am getting my life in order not just my weight. I am trying to lighten my footprint every where, less stuff, less stress, fewer obligations, less weight. At the same time I am adding to my life experiences in a meaningful way. Choosing how I commit my time to activities, people, places with care and thought. If I slow everything down a little life is more enjoyable and meaningful. It's ok to say no, and it's ok to eliminate some people from your life.

Thank you for reading my article! I appreciate your comments. I actually see a physical therapist and have him set up a schedule for me and give me a list of my limitations. You can then take that list to your personal trainer. Any personal trainer who wants to actually help you should draw up a training plan that will work around your problem areas. I've done this in the past and it was helpful. I also didn't need a personal trainer for more than a few sessions at a time. I learned, over time, what exercises would set me off so I just avoided them. If you combine your personal trainer program along with water exercise it's even better! I hope this helps!

Thank you for commenting on my blog.

I've been taking turmeric/curcumin supplements for a couple years now for my spinal arthritis. It definitely seems to help, doesn't make me pain free but does take the edge off. There's lots of info on the net about it's many benefits. One thing to note is that it is poorly absorbed and needs an additive, usually bioperine, to aid absorption.
